Prada Leads the Way to Sustainability With its Re-Edition Nylon Bag

In 2021, sustainability is at the forefront of the fashion industry. Prada is one of many luxury brands rethinking its environmental impact, and coming up with innovative solutions that can sustainably take the brand into the future.

As part of its plan to turn archival materials into new products – the Prada Re-edition Nylon Bag is all about reducing the environmental impact of high-end fashion.

Choosing Nylon as its primary ‘up-cycle material,’ the luxury fashion house has a goal to convert all of its Prada virgin nylon products into Re-Nylon by the end of 2021.

Lorenzo Bertelli, the Prada Group Head of Marketing and Corporate Social Responsibility says:

“This project highlights our continued efforts towards promoting a responsible business. This collection allows us to make our contribution and create products without using new resources.”

Prada Re-edition Nylon material

By utilising a regenerated nylon yarn, collected from landfill and ocean sites called ECONYL, the material can be recycled multiple times without affecting the end quality of the product.

The first Re-edition Nylon collection debuted in 2019, as a capsule bag line with six classic styles for both men and women. Since then, the collection has expanded into Ready-to-Wear Collection featuring tailored single-breasted overcoats for men, full-skirted and slender cocktail dresses, cocoon coats, sportswear, shoes, bags and other accessories.

Inspired by the styles of the early 2000s, these are some of our favourite Prada Re-edition Nylon Bags from its current collection.

Re-Edition 2005 Nylon Shoulder Bag

This iconic shoulder bag is currently available in both black and navy. Featuring a removable chain handle, Saffiano detailing, and an adjustable woven nylon shoulder strap, the handbag offers a huge amount of versatility to the wearer.

The bag comes with a coordinated pouch to attach to the shoulder strap or use as a separate item altogether. With its dark tone and chain handle, the bag offers an edgy, urban look.

Choose the black for a laid-back modern look, or go with the beige for a classically feminine style.
