Gorgeous Spring 2002 Prada Runway Skirt Look 47 Gold Silk Metallic Lame Skirt
This is the twin to the skirt that walked the runway for Look 47 of the Spring 2002 Prada show. Vogue's review of this show said: "Combining '50s notions of jet-set elegance with couturelike fabrics and exquisite ethnic references, Miuccia Prada triumphantly opened Milan fashion week..... Then came an exquisite homage to vintage Chanel, with belted, gold-threaded bouclé dresses—just the kind of stunning little outfits Romy Schneider would have sported in the early '60s.....As usual, Prada saved the best for last. In contrast to the dour palette that many designers have adopted lately, her runway positively dazzled. Nude tops and dresses were layered with lightweight, shimmering knits; paneled, imposing skirts glowed under crinkled gold tops and coppery brocade jackets. The result? A vision of bygone splendor that never devolved into gratuitous flash." This skirt was one of the best pieces in the show and it is still infinitely wearable now.
These gold pieces from the 2002 show are still instantly recognizable as being Prada. They sold out worldwide and were waitlisted everywhere. It is an incredible testament to her ability to take the past and make it feel fresh. The skirt is made from a silk brocade that is surpassingly light. It looks like it should feel very heavy but it weighs next to nothing. The metallic gold thread is woven through the fabric to create a slightly raised floral design that runs over the entire skirt. It is more fitted around the upper hips and then it is perfectly pleated with very wide pleats that have deep folds between them. This gives the skirt lots of movement and shape. This particular pleating technique helps to hold the shape and volume of the skirt so that is falls perfectly at all times. It is just gorgeous. All of the shape and structure is created by the precise stitching and placement of the fabric. The gold is an almost bronze feeling colour and it is a very easy way to work a metallic into your wardrobe. It would work equally as well for day or the evening. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition
