Prada Re-Nylon: The Next Generation of Luxury Fashion

Italian fashion house Prada are tapping into their social conscience in an unprecedented way with their latest collection: Prada Re-Nylon.

Crafted from regenerated nylon, the collection is the brand’s most tangible effort towards producing sustainable fashion.

Made possible by Econyl, the collection uses a regenerated nylon that has been created through the recycling and purification of plastic collected from oceans, fishing nets, landfills, and textile fibre waste. By tying fabric technology and sustainable luxury together, they’ve been able to create new products without having to use new resources - the core goal of sustainability.

Prada Re-Nylon first debuted in 2019 with a capsule bag collection of six classic styles: a wardrobe of accessories created from the ecologically-conscious, 100% sustainable regenerated nylon. This year, the range has expanded with a selection of ready-to-wear pieces, including clothing for both men and women.

Alongside ready-to-wear, there’s also an extended line of footwear and accessories such as hats, belts, and bags. Stand-out pieces from the overall collection include the men’s short-sleeved shirt, the classic-style backpack, and, of course, the bucket hat. All garments and accessories feature a dedicated marking: the brand’s iconic triangular logo reworked as a looping arrow, a symbol of perpetual renewal and of the cyclical life of the range.

Prada’s Re-Nylon collection has redefined the brand’s position in the fashion industry, making it clear that their commitment to sustainable practice now and in the future is a serious one. They’re currently also working towards achieving a company-wide goal for sustainability: to convert the use of all original nylon into regenerated nylon by the end of 2021.

The Prada Re-Nylon collection is currently available in-store at selected Prada boutiques worldwide as well as online.
