Runway F/W 2004 Prada Coat with Removeable Fur Collar
This was Look 29 in the Fall 2004 line-up from fashion darling Miuccia Prada. This collection is still revered as one of her shining achievements and I doubt the pieces and prints used in this collection will ever truly go out of style. The reviews were stellar. Vogue.com said of this collection:
Audiences always arrive at Prada shows tingling with anticipation, braced for Miuccia Prada's next departure from the last season's plot. This time, she confounded expectation again, not by taking off in a new direction, but by developing the cache of ideas layered into her spring collection. That, of course, was famously about the fifties lady tourist, with an overlay of hippie-ish tie-dye among the circle skirts and knits. For winter, she took that same woman into new realms of intellectual exploration on the print front: back to the future, in fact. This time, she confounded expectation again, not by taking off in a new direction, but by developing the cache of ideas layered into her spring collection...."It was a dream of extreme romanticism," she said. "The idea of eighteenth-century painting, with video games. A romanticism between past and future."....For colder months, she added more layers, adding in dip-dyed cable knits and buttonless cardigans betwixt tweeds and bejeweled fifties-style couture-like pieces. What held it all together, literally, were the cinched waists, circled in narrow grosgrain ribbon or with tie-on belts encrusted with sparkle. It was that idea of jeweling, on collars, belts, and fabric brooches, that added the news.
On the runway this was shown belted with a jeweled silk tie belt and the modern girl could change the look from that to a wide leather corset belt, wrap a skinny belt around the waist or leave it loose and open. A luxurious dyed fur collar is added at the neck but it is cleverly a piece that can be removed, giving you in a sense, two coats in one. The body of the coat is made of a fine, lightweight wool and I love the classic check that gives it that retro feel. It buttons down the front and has front slant pockets for that perfect cool girl feel. The shoulder and collar are cut to slouch a bit which make it feel modern with just a touch of the nineties in the mix. An iconic piece of Prada history. Excellent condition.
