I just found a holy grail of mine on Ebay today. This Prada leather portfolio embellished with two plaques bedecked in silver and gold nuts and bolts would be just the thing a stylish cyborg would carry to Paris fashion week if he needed a bag to stuff invites, a notebook, and a sunglass case in.
Devoid of handles and weighed down by the excessive hardware, this bag is impractically delicious.

I had a brief encounter with this portfolio a couple of years ago at the ultramodern Rodeo Drive Prada boutique, and it was pure magic the moment I picked it up. I have not seen it in any other Prada boutique since. Other views:
It’s listed at a buy it now price of GBP 200 (which really is an absolute steal) but being an ebay virgin, I’m still way too squeamish to even consider making this transaction. To those ebay-experienced readers out there, do let me know what you think! (ebay link here)
EDIT: Contacted the seller, and the bag is not available anymore. I guess it wasn’t meant to be then. On the bright side, more money for my winter coat fund, yay!
