Resort 2008 Prada Silk Runway/Campaign Dress
I love this amazing silk floral Prada dress from the 2008 Resort collection. This was one of the most famous of all Miuccia's collections and the pieces sold out world-wide shortly after being released. Being resort the pieces were produced in extremely limited quantities making everything from this collection even more special. Versions were featured heavily in the ad campaign for that season and was worn by Anna Wintour and other celebrities. Pieces appeared in many publications and editorials. It will forever be instantly recognized as one of the keystone pieces from Miuccia Prada's brilliant mind! It is also an amazing testament to the couture level construction techniques that the house of Prada employs. The bust skims the body and has the perfect plunge at the front. Its banded around the waist. The skirt is a masterpieces - it is deliberately and meticulously shaped and draped with flat pleats of fabric. The finishing is perfection and it is very collectible. It has a decidedly forties feel to it mixed with a wanton and beguiling, girl-next-door, sexiness. In excellent, appears to have never been worn condition.
