Scenic Print Fall 2004 Prada Runway & Ad Campaign Skirt w Gathered Bottom
This skirt is a near version of Looks 27 and 33 from the runway and one also appeared in the ad campaign that year. The reviews for this season 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. "It was a dream of extreme romanticism," she said. "The idea of eighteenth-century painting, with video games. A romanticism between past and future."
This is one of those pieces that reference the idea of an eighteenth century painting and it still feels as special now as it did then. Pieces from this collection sold out worldwide and were waitlisted everywhere. It is an incredible testament to her ability to take the past and make it feel fresh. The skirt is made from one of her signature smooth finished silks that has a slight sheen-like finish to it. It was then dyed to a silvery grey and .then that magnificent washed feeling waiting was screened on the surface. It is more fitted around the waist and then falls outwards to widen out by the time it reaches the hem. There are soft pleats worked around the hem to help give it the volume you see and to make the slightest suggestion a bubble hem. This also gives the skirt lots of movement and shape. It is just gorgeous. It is a very easy way to work a string statement into your wardrobe. It would work equally as well for day or the evening. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
