Gorgeous Spring 2019 Prada Look 41 Runway Neon Green & Navy Tie Dye Dress
On the runway this was shown as a skirt but for production they did it as a full dress. Vogue's Sarah Mower said in part of this collection; 'This time, her (Miuccia Prada) address seemed aimed directly to youth. There were cycling shorts and duchesse satin A-line tunics and baby doll dresses; plunging bodysuits with straps under the breasts; sheer black knee-highs implanted with Prada’s triangular logos; and iterations of her ’60s–’70s throwback print jersey ladylike coats, all of it topped off with puffy Alice bands. “I wanted to break the rules of the classic,” she said. “To discuss a wish of freedom and liberation and fantasy, and, on the other side, the extreme conservatism that is coming—the duality out there.' This dress has the added provenance in that Rachel Brosnahan wore its twin to the 2019 PaleyFest which is wonderful as it shows you just how fabulous the dress is on the body.
The dress is classic Prada and it is a simple but refined silhouette. The top is cut the skim over the body and the shoulders are soft and unpadded. The sleeves end just above the elbow and have a black satin button detail on the cuff. This same detailing is picked up on the collar where a ring of black silk satin circles your neck. I love the little bow and gold button detailing it. It is an extra little quirky touch that is so in line with the Prada brand. The front of the top is bloused and there are two pleats running down the front for detailing. You can wear it without the belt if you want it to fall more loose and easy on the body or use the belt to give it shape. Adding the belt does pick up on that same black satin detailing and the use of the gold buttons. The skirt is gorgeous. It is a cut in a series of flat pleats set to run all the way around you. These allow the skirt to open up and have tremendous volume when you move. When you stand still the skirt falls smooth and flat and as soon as you move it flares out around you. The most astonishing thing about the dress is the fabric. It is a silk crêpe that’s been tie-dyed in shades of blue that range from a deep navy to an almost purple. This is then combined with an almost acidic neon green. It is fabulous to see and a definite showstopper. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes with a back hidden set zipper. Each cuff has a decorative button. The belt buttons and hooks to close. The fabric has Prada embedded in the print. Tagged a 42
