Fantastic Spring 2005 Prada Runway Look 26 Pleated Bright Coral Stripe Skirt
The Spring 2005 Prada show is one of the label's most iconic and recognizable. In her review of the show, Vogue's Sarah Mower stated: "Just when the whole fashion world has turned ladylike—thanks, of course, to Miuccia Prada—she's tossed it all in the air, looking for a certain freedom." I wanted to move toward something more young and sporty, tall and narrow" she stated.... In broad terms, the news from Prada included a different silhouette (short hemlines, worn mostly with flat sandals), a return to one of her favorite palettes (brown-ochre-rust), and as always, lots of artful eccentricity. There was also a Jamaican dance hall vibe, with reggae on the sound system, Rasta stripes in the knitwear, and Caribbean crochet in the raffia hats and cardigan coats." This is one of the striped skirts from that collection and it is wonderful.
This is the twin of the skirt that walked the runway for Look 35 and it is instantly recognizable as being Prada. With this one we see her masterful hand at mixing colour. The colours on the skirt are just extraordinary it combines a bright orange collar with deep purple toned bands. The result is this brilliant burst of colour that is just wonderful to see. It is made from a very fine silk with a finish that gives it a slight sheen. This fabric choice helps to hold the shape and volume. It is more fitted around the upper hips and then it is perfectly pleated with wide knife pleats that have sharply defined edges and deep folds. This gives the skirt lots of movement and shape. It is just gorgeous. The silk is light in weight and all of the shape and structure is created by the precise pleating. It is fabulous. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition with one minor note below
