The Prada Fairy Bag is a limited edition handbag designed by James Jean. The bag is a light colored handbag available in two sizes. It is made from deerskin leather and features fairies sketched on the bag in black and browns. The bag hit runways in January 2008 and is part of Prada's Spring 2008 collection. The bag has several distinct marks that make it unique and easy to identify.
Feel the Prada Fairy Bag. The bag is made from deerskin leather. Deerskin leather feels soft and supple. The authentic bag will not feel like fake leather, rough or be stiff. If possible, feel deerskin leather and compare it with the feel of the bag. Many purses and gloves are made from deerskin leather.
Examine the colors and detail on the bag. The primary color of the bag is white. The inside of the bag features a light pink lining. The design on the bag is done in browns, blacks, golds and burgundies. No other colors are present. The bowler bag features one female fairy, and the satchel bag features one male and one female fairy. The male is on the left side and the female is on the right. Look at pictures of the bag and become familiar with what the bag looks like.
Prada Fairy Bags retailed for $2,290 and $2,490. This handbag was a limited edition and sold out. They did not go on sale, were not sold at discounted prices and seconds or imperfect bags were not sold. Therefore, if someone is offering the bag brand new for a price much lower for this, it's likely a fake.
