Do we ever feel like a plastic bag, you ask? Why yes, of course! Though mind you, we’re a Prada.
More precisely, we like to think of ourselves as one of the Italian fashion house’s brand-new Re-Nylon bags, an eco-friendly upgrade to the brand’s iconic, black nylon line that has ‘90s flair written all over it. Made from Econyl, an Aquafil-produced fabric composed of plastics and fishing nets collected from the ocean, the bags can be recycled indefinitely, which, considering the ever-changing nature of fashion, goes down as a real benefit in our books: in a world, where it often feels as though more is more, and consumption eternally perpetuates itself, it’s rather refreshing – if not crucially needed – to see a more sustainable take on producing fashion.
Prada is releasing a total of six unisex Re-Nylon travel accessories you’ll soon be seeing strapped to the backs or hanging off the shoulders of everyone who likes to travel consciously and in style (we’ll be premiering our weekender duffle on a trip to France, if you must know). Need more variety for that full-on Prada look? You won’t have to wait long: the luxury label’s entire nylon range will be made from Econyl by the end of 2021. That’s one trend we’ll gladly follow.
