Like Prada’s Nylon Shoulder Bag? You’ll Love These Affordable Alternatives

Get the designer look on a budget.

If you needed any confirmation that 90s and Y2K style is back with a vengeance, you only need to take one look at Prada’s Re-Edition 2005 nylon bag.

The arm candy, worn by stars including Bella Hadid, Paris Hilton and Dua Lipa, was actually first introduced in 1979, but an updated style released in 1985 saw it really take off.

In the past few years, the brand re-introduced the classic nylon bag in two styles: the Nylon Re-Edition 2005 and the 2000. The former has sold out, but the latter is still available to buy now.

This time around, it’s been created in Re-Nylon, a ‘regenerated nylon yarn (ECONYL®)produced from recycled, purified plastic trash collected in the ocean, fishing nets and textile waste fibers.’

The designer nylon bag goes with absolutely any look. It’s simple, chic and undeniably classic.

However while we’d all love to own the Prada bag, unfortunately at over £1,000, it’s not affordable for everyone. It’s unsurprising that ever since it’s reintroduction, the high street is awash with lookalikes.

For those looking to get the designer look for less, we’ve searched high and low on the high street to find affordable dupes of the 90s-style nylon bag.

From Guess to Mango, there are plenty of retailers offering lookalikes and they come in countless colours. Here are the best I’ve found.
