Rucksack, Prada, Italian, 1980–89

Nylon, leather, and metal

Donated by Prada

In 1978 Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertellli took over the family business established by her grandfather, Mario Prada, in 1913. Together they turned it into a global luxury goods brand. During the 1980s a black Prada bag became the ultimate status symbol for the discerning client. Worn by both genders, this functional rucksack became a classic.
