Prada stages a sartorial throwback that is equal parts noughtie(s) and nice
Ah, 2002. A simpler time when larger-than-life accessories and bubble- gum pink were the trend du jour. For spring, Prada is harnessing feel- good noughties nostalgia by re-releasing an archival It bag, with a twist. The Prada Moon first stole hearts on the Spring/Summer 2002 runway and has now been reimagined for 2023, utilising years of perfected craftsmanship to weave the story of the House’s past, present and future by combining vintage elements with a contemporary flair.
The decade is in the details: an extra-large buckle — the Y2K style statement instantly recognisable to those of us of a certain age — pays homage to the oversized belts that ruled wardrobes, while a triangular Prada emblem from 1913 solidifies its stand-out status. Looking to the future, Gen-Z playfulness is introduced via puffed- up nappa leather and whimsical hues perfect for sunshine season. Shop now
