The Rise of the Nylon Cargo Bag

In partnership with our friends at Prada

Much like music and hairstyles and the rise of your jeans, Prada bags change with the times. (We can thank Miuccia Prada’s infallible sense of now for that.) Back in 1919, Prada made leather trunks for Italian royalty. Years later, it gave the world its iconic version of the bowler bag. And let’s not forget the most legendary piece of all: the nylon backpack, which had its big break in the ’80s, stuck around through the ’90s, and has been riffed on every season since. The current reissue is the hyperfunctional, pocket-happy Nylon Cargo Bag. And while the shape, size, and superfluities may have evolved, there’s one thing—okay, three things that have remained wholly unchanged: that inimitable triangle, the pragmatic sexy-cool attitude, and the novelty nylon that started it all.
