Trends from past decades come back and forth faster than you can say animal print. One decade that keeps on coming back for more is the 90s. Mom jeans, scrunchies, crop tops and platform trainers are just a few of the icons that have made it back into our everyday wardrobes over 20 years later. One of the most recent nostalgic styles to have made a comeback, is the nylon shoulder bag. The most famous of the bunch? The Prada nylon bag


Miuccia Prada first starting using the synthetic fibre in the 80’s. Nylon was seen as the ultimate ‘anti-luxury’ material at the time, and was reserved for packaging only. Prada said “Suddenly nylon started to look more intriguing to me than couture fabrics. I decided to introduce it to the catwalk and it challenged, even changed, the traditional and conservative idea of luxury. I am still obsessed with it”. The ultimate combination of high fashion and sports luxe, they are a true poster girl for 90s styles and one of Prada’s most recognisable pieces to date.

The infamous bags were first released in the 90s and early 2000s, but have recently been reissued and are back with a bang. In recent months, they have been seen on the arms of many celebrities and fashion bloggers including Kylie Jenner, Elsa Hosk and Marianna Hewitt. They come in a whole array of colours from minimal monochrome, neutrals and pastel and bright shades.
