S/S 1999 Prada Side Bag


Iconic nylon taffeta bag from one of Prada's most iconic seasons.

Hands down one of the most memorable Prada shows, if not the most, the S/S 99 was a pivotal moment for techwear in fashion. Luxury and noble materials like leather & linen were paired with nylon, webbing straps, reflective details and an overall tech-inspired aesthetic.

Numerous products and designs that are considered mainstays of the brand derive from this very show.

This side bag is part of that collection and follows the design ethos of all the bags featured on the runway show. Not your ordinary Prada bag.

The bag is made out of an off-white nylon taffeta. It features a large, velcro-fastened main compartment, with a zipped pocket inside, and also a zipped front compartment with the classic latex pocket on top of it. Reflective detail applied to the side strap.

Good condition for its age. The Prada plaque in the interior of the bag has caused some oxidation stains around it, as usual with bags from this collection. It has some stains to the back of it. The latex pouch is in a remarkable good condition for its age showing very minimum yellowing.
