Resort 2010 Collection Pretty Printed Prada Cotton Dress

This is a fantastic little dress with one of the prettiest prints from Prada that I have seen. It is slightly different version from Look #25 that walked runway, but is done in the same colorway and I actually love the cut of this dress better. Prada often delivers to stores several versions of the runway dress and I often think that the after versions are better as they have the added benefit of feedback from the buyers. The dress is constructed from a gorgeous, feather light cotton voile, whose slight transparency give the dress a layer of texture and depth over the inner white silk lining. The bodice is crossed and scooped low and each shoulder cut wide to give it a real fifties flare and feel - a theme that often runs through Miuccia's work. I love how the skirt cascades out from the waist and has fine, hand set pleats over the hip. This makes it very flattering and gives the wearer a beautiful long, lean line. It is beautifully cut and constructed. A wonderful little frock that you can just slip on and instantly feel pretty in. Excellent condition

Vogue Runway's said of this show: .".... in sharp contrast to the austerity of her Fall show, this one had pretty draped-back dresses in camel color-blocked with pastels; cheeky scarf-print bikini briefs with ties at the hips, worn with neon-bright button-downs; and eye candy in the form of little duffel bags in colorful florals that matched the models' ankle-tie sandals. The bow was a recurring motif, appearing at the neckline and elbows of an asymmetrically draped black top, at the hem of narrow underskirts, and at the back of float-y, vaguely 1920's-ish wallpaper-print dresses. The cumulative effect was appealingly unstudied. Call it Prada's antidote for trying fashion times."
