S/S 2004 Prada Runway Postcard Print Cotton Dress
This is a fantastic little print dress is one of the most recognizable of the dresses that walked the 2004 runway presentation from Prada. In Vogue's review of the collection they said: "For Spring 2004, the designer turned her attention to the stiffest fashion challenge of the day: how to make feminine, happily nostalgic clothes without rehashing the clichés of vintage? “It was about tourism and craftsmanship, many things,” she said of a show that revisited the optimistic fifties to bring back a full set of densely packed suitcases. Out tumbled every possible variation on the classic touring wardrobe: circle skirts printed with illustrated Mediterranean scenes, shirtwaists and Capri pants, sundresses and bathing suits, button-through skirts and lovely evening frocks, silk madras bras and little tulle full-skirted dance dresses."
It is constructed from a gorgeous custom screened cotton that has a slight starched finish so it feel crisp and holds the shape. It is of course styled with a strong nod to the 1950s and has a neat collar and shirt button front. The sleeves are cut long an slim with a button at each cuff. The waist nips in and the skirt is tremendously full - if laid out flat its volume is greater then a full circle there is so much fabric in it. The fabric itself is a marvel it is covered with a postcard print and if you look closely you realize it was all placed deliberately to follow and highlight the cut of the dress. Perfectly Prada and highly collectible. Excellent condition.
The dress is unlined and closes with the buttons down the front. The quality of finishes that one would expect from Prada. Tagged a Prada 46 but is cut small so please check measurements below. It appears to have never been worn.
