Prada Re-Nylon first debuted in 2019 with a capsule bag collection of six classic styles for men and women: a wardrobe of accessories created from the ecologically-conscious, 100% sustainable regenerated nylon.
The Re-Nylon collection is a groundbreaking evolution of the brand’s most recognisable signifier, nylon – an emblem of Prada’s distinct viewpoint on modern luxury, an industrial beauty, and contemporary life for more than four decades.
For 2020, the range is expanded and extended, translating Re-Nylon into Prada ready-to-wear for the first time, fusing sportswear elements with silhouettes and approaches of luxury.
Alongside ready-to-wear, the collection features the first Re-Nylon footwear, regenerated nylon used to create new iterations of the Monolith combat boots and shoes, and low- and high-top sneakers. The accessory offering is also expanded, including hats, belts and multiple bag silhouettes for men and women.
Launched with a global-first preview at the Selfridges Corner Shop, the Prada Re-Nylon collection will be available soon on prada.com and in selected Prada boutiques and special pop-up stores, as follows: Japan, Tokyo Aoyama (from Sept. 18) – Korea, Seoul Chengdam (from Sept. 18) – China, SKP South (from Sept. 23) – USA, NY Broadway (from Sept. 23) – USA, LA Beverly Hills (from Sept. 23) – Korea, Seoul Shinsegae (Sept. 28-Oct. 18).
Prada Re-Nylon is entirely crafted from regenerated nylon created through the recycling and purification of plastic collected from oceans, fishing nets, landfills, and textile fibre waste globally. Through a process of de-molymerization, purification, and then transformation into new polymers and then threads, this material can be recuperated and made into new nylon fabric.
