Conceived in 2007, endlessly reinvented ever since, the Galleria bag is a Prada archetype, a neo-classic. Future heritage, an heirloom in the making, the bag is titled after the home of Prada’s historic flagship in Milan - the storied Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, housing the boutique where the Prada brand was founded by Mario Prada, Miuccia Prada’s grandfather, in 1913.
The Making of
Sleek and stylish, but simultaneously innately pragmatic, the Galleria design shifts between form and function. Referential to Prada’s patrimony of craftsmanship yet reflective of a modern design ethos, this combination of history and the contemporaneous invents the timeless.
Composed of 83 individual pieces, its creation is a true duet, a combination of industrial precision and the exactitude of delicate craft only possible by hand.
The bag’s signature Saffiano leather is created via an intricate hot-pressing process; raw edges are smoothed and hand-painted to match.
