Prada Metal-Latched Handbag
Inspired by military parachutes, Miuccia Prada re-defined luxury handbags with the introduction of the water-resistant, nylon Vela backpack in 1984. Peak Prada pocone pouches occurred in the early 2000s as they reached IT bag status.
Nostalgia abound, Prada recently re-launched its 2005 nylon shoulder strap bag. In 2019, the company promised to phase out virgin nylon bags by 2021 in favour of Econyl recycled nylon as part of their ReNylon initiative.
This black, vintage nylon purse with leather strap handle features the iconic Prada triangle hardware with "Prada Milano" engraving and zip closure with metal latch.
