I'm currently working at Prada and what did I come across on my first day... these gorgeous dresses with beautiful prints which are all taken out of Miuccia Prada's vast textile library in which pieces of fabrics are archived). This is the new Prada Print Collection – which features a single dress, a lovely 1950s summery style with a gathered skirt, which has been created in a range of fabrics from cottons to silks in Miuccia’s distinctively painterly patterns. Also in the range, ballerina pumps with ribbon bow in contrasting prints, and a shoulder bag on a chain strap in more prints inspired by fabrics from Miuccia’s archive. So far, so gorgeously Prada.
But here is the bit that stopped us in our tracks: every piece in the collection - which went on sale mid-May – all retail for below £500. Dresses retail for between £425 - £475 (depending on fabric and print), shoes for £235 (bags prices have yet to be confirmed). We had to double check to make sure there hadn’t been a mistake. But no, it’s all [a dream come] true.
Oh how we love a bit of Prada in our life...
