Prada’s full collection may not be sustainable – yet anyway – but with its new Re-Nylon capsule collection, the brand is definitely making positive steps in the right direction. The Re-Nylon collection introduces iconic Prada bags executed in a new regenerated nylon, ECONYL®, which is obtained through the recycling and purification process of plastic waste collected from oceans, fishing nets, and textile fibre waste. Partnering with UNESCO, a portion of the proceeds from the capsule collection will be donated to help fund an ocean sustainability education programme.
