F/W 2002 Prada Runway Look 32 Documented Mink Fur Jacket
This is the twin jacket of the runway Look 32, from the fall 2002 Prada show and it was shown on Kristina Chrastekova. on the runway. Style.com's review of this show in part said: "In a show that was densely layered with references to the history of fashion, Prada cut a strong, curvaceous and erotically charged line to give grown-ups a whole new reason to buy." The jacket was also heavily photoed for editorial that season, most notably by Mario Testino on Gisele Bundchen in Prada for the September issue of Vogue.
The jacket is made out of American mink that has been pieced together with a complex technique that used little strips of the fur like a fabric. This creates the deconstructed look that you see and gives it a more casual and interesting texture. It is cut to fit slim on the body and ties at the waist to draw in the shape. Hidden pockets sit on each hip. The collar is neat and tidy and the the edges left with an almost raw feeling that has the silk that fur is set in peaking through. The interior is finished with a semi-transparent silk chiffon giving it a very feminine feel. It has never been worn. Excellent condition.

I have a small collection of historically important, key designer labelled vintage furs, fur trimmed & feather pieces stored away in my archives that I will be slowly posting on the site over the next couple of years until I have none left. I will no longer be buying furs for the shop moving forward and have not purchased anything for several years now. I feel like times have changed and while there still is a place for vintage furs for some, including collectors and historians, many modern girls are choosing other options. Many of the pieces in my collection are representative of the designer during a set time period in history that was different then our modern outlook. I have decided that the best course to handle this controversial issue is to let the pieces I have go rather then sit in a cold storage unit. All fur coats, fur trimmed & feather pieces are final sale
