Prada has announced a new bespoke service for the creation of one-of-a-kind bags. With a waiting list pushing two months and only available from Prada stores in Milan, Tuscany, Paris and London, it seems the hottest new "it" bag will be the one you create yourself (price upon request, of course). "Customers will be able to choose from a wide variety of decadent materials (suede, leather, crocodile, python, alligator, snakeskin?), rich colors, hardware and detailing." We're betting this will be the next must-have birthday gift on My Super Sweet 16. [TFS]
