S/S 2011 Runway Prada Cherubs and Stripes Skirt
Stripes and prints were mixed with joyful abandon on the Spring 2011 Prada runway and were then translated for retail with very little difference in some case. This skirt is a great example of that as it stays very true to the version that walked the runway. This is a mixing of prints that has become iconic and instantly associated with Prada. It is made of a almost canvas feeling cotton mix so it retains structure. The print covers the skirt from top to bottom and all the way around the sides and back. I love the baroque feel it has mixed with a very modern silhouette. It's a beauty. Excellent condition
Style.com said of this collection:
"Only Miuccia Prada could attach a label like "minimal baroque" to a collection whose references ranged from hospital scrubs to seventeenth-century cherubs to Jazz Age superwoman Josephine Baker. Fishing around for an alternative to "fresh," she herself came up with "brave, bold, and obvious"—that last one a typical head-spinner......But there was also more than enough of Prada's twisty-ness to boost this collection into her already chock-full pantheon of greats. Those cherubs, for a start, plucked from a curlicued baroque interior and all mixed up with bananas and naive monkeys in an exuberantly cartoonish print that looked like something lifted from a poster for a Josephine Baker performance at the Folies Bergère in the twenties.....As she said backstage, banana earrings vibrating: "It's time to be bold." And that's one maxim that, with any luck, will rub off on the world at large."
