jblended, the Re-Nylon initiative is incredible. Prada always seems to be so forward (not only design-wise) but socio/political/environmentally. Makes sense given Miuccia’s background in politics. One of the many reasons I love the house.I was just reading up on Re-Nylon bags and the sustainability efforts the house is making.
This piece is very 'you'!
How do you like the puffy external pockets? It's the only thing I was not certain of as I saw pictures online...do you find they stick out a lot when you're wearing the jacket?
I find Re-Nylon actually more robust than virgin nylon- it’s superb quality! And I actually love the the external pocket detail. It’s a very specific look. But I’m drawn to silhouettes that exaggerate shoulders and hips (creating a teeny tiny waist). I’m into the Balenciaga hourglass jacket, as well as the super cartoonish shapes created by Mugler- so I’m more than a bit biased! Definitely a design feature that stands out literally and figuratively.
Oh- and fun fact.. there aren’t any real pockets under there. Ha, that might be my only qualm.
