Now that ’90s nostalgia is all the rage, it’s actually quite amazing that one of the decade’s most iconic and OG It-bags have yet to make a full-blown return to pop culture – the black Prada nylon backpack.
But you know it’s only a matter of time before Bella Hadid and the like start toting around one of these ’90s babies.
For those of you who want to get a dose of ’90s Prada magic, the Italian house has just opened a pop-up at Ion Orchard from now till the end of November dedicated to its famous nylon bags, now updated in new colours such as emerald green and burgundy and in a variety of bag styles such as fanny packs, totes and yes, the iconic OG backpack.
#1: Fanny pack
Fanny packs are all the rage at the men’s shows and trendy models like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner have been spotted in many designs over the summer. Why not go for the OG version? It comes several different iteration as well.
Backpacks do not come any more iconic than Prada’s, who practically kick-started the trend towards utility-focused designs.
An everyday shopper is always useful and with the upcoming tax on plastic shopping bags by local supermarkets – a reliable shopper is more in-demand than ever, no?
