Once upon a time in the late ’90s and into the early ’00s, Prada’s nylon handbag styles were as cool as you could get—Virtually every celebrity and taste maker of that era was carrying one. Then, as most trends do, Prada’s nylon bag declined in popularity and eventually they were no more. But fast-forward to 2020 and Prada has reignited it’s iconic nylon style with a range of new handbags that are suddenly everywhere again. One look at fashion week street style photos is proof—Prada’s nylon bags are back! Prada’s recently re-issued nylon bags from the early 2000s are officially the It-bags once again, with trendsetters from around the globe carrying them in every color they’re available in.
The re-issued style has already been spotted on the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Kaia Gerber—and the list keeps growing. The bags have a slightly updated silhouette but kept Prada’s signature label and nylon fabric for the perfect infusion of nostalgia. These small bags are big enough to fit your phone and essentials while still remaining compact. The black and nude versions are perfect for those with more minimalist style, and it’s also available in pink for maximalists and fans of color. The version with the thin chain strap feels like the perfect combination of nostalgia and contemporary.

Prada’s nylon bags are one of those styles that truly goes with everything—from polished evening dresses to relaxed daytime looks to weekend outfits of sweatshirts and jeans. It adds a playful touch to whatever you choose to wear it with, given it’s throwback nature and nylon fabrication. Many of their color ways have already sold out, but if you act fast you can still get your hands on black, brown, red, pink and more straight from Prada’s website. Now that this style is back in the trend cycle, it’s one we don’t see disappearing anytime soon.
