Few handbag trends have defined the 2020s (so far) like the archival revival trend has. While the beginning of the decade feels like another lifetime ago thanks to the major world events that have impacted us all in the last 3+ years, when it comes to the archival revival boom’s biggest hits, it feels like just yesterday that many of our favorite bags returned. One of the biggest returns to the spotlight came from Miuccia Prada and the House of Prada itself. Yes, of course, we’re talking about the Prada Re-Edition 2005.
A Blast From the Past
The Prada-Re-Edition 2005 hit the scene at the intersection of the archival revival boom and the multi-bag trend. However, a few short months later, the entire world stopped when a global pandemic prevented the world collectively from not only dressing up and going out but leaving our homes altogether. Still, the revival trend prevailed, and hands-free bags that were easy to both carry and wipe down became go-to choices for many of us.
Prada’s nylon revivals boomed big. While most of us have finally returned to some sort of normalcy, or what we now know as normal, these blasts from the past have remained a go-to choice for many. Prada’s nylon revivals are reinvigorated each season with new colors (and silhouettes too).
Go for the Gold
For the Fall 2023 season, Prada has given one of its standouts from the Re-Edition line a shiny new makeover, offering gold hardware details instead of the traditional silver. While nylon can add a dressed-down feel to any bag, adding a gold logo and gold hardware details make the re-edition feel elevated – and I love it.
Arriving in black, pale blue, and alabaster, this new version adds a bit of versatility. When wearing the bag with the chain strap alone, the gold Re-Edition feels extra chic, adding a touch of dressed-up appeal to an otherwise more casual bag.
