Resort 2009 Prada Shift Dress With Chain Insets said of this collection: "A few of her favorite things. That summed up a Resort collection that was an amalgam of Miuccia Prada's perennial motifs. Active sport was represented by bike shorts and Windbreakers worn as evening toppers. A leopard print's roar was balanced by a twee heart motif. And almost every piece—from bikini tops to ladylike dresses with pleated gores—was encrusted with maharaja-meets-la dolce vita-style jewels. As a result, what the collection lacked in scope it made up for in the sort of sheer dazzle that Prada is so adept at providing"

This dress, which was look 23 on the runway that season, is the kind of piece that makes instant and long lasting fans of the Prada label. It is an amazing piece in every way. The cut is a simple shift that gently widens as it nears the hem with a scooped neckline and capped shoulders. It skims over the body and what it lacks in being form fitting it more then makes up for with its hint of exposure due to the chain links that hold the top and bottom pieces together! A second ring of plastic chain circles the hem as well.The fabric is custom and a stunning example and it is a gorgeous with the suggestion of a leopard sprawled across its front on a dusky olive backdrop. This dress appears to have never been worn and it's original retail was around the $2,500 mark. Excellent condition.

The dress is fully lined in a olive silky rayon and closes with a hidden set back zipper. Has the quality of finishes that one would expect from Prada. There is a small spot near the seam on one shoulder. Tagged a Prada 40
