The magic of this new collection, perhaps unsurprisingly, is in the fabric. Manufactured in collaboration with textile yarn producer Aquafil, each thread of Prada’s new “Econyl” nylon is obtained from purified and recycled fishing nets and textile fibre waste collected from the oceans. The resulting ultra-high-quality nylon (honestly, you can’t tell the difference) is itself entirely recyclable.
Even better, there’s not a chance you’ll ever actually want to recycle one of the shoulder, tote or duffle bags, because they will pass the test of time as well as anything else you’d ever buy from Prada – the function-friendly backpack (pictured) in particular…
Here, to help you get your wardrobe up to full sustainable scratch, we reveal a few more ethical pieces that have lost none of their style credentials…
1. The Bag
2. The Sneakers
3. The Sweater
4. The Coat
