Spring 2005 Prada Runway & Ad Canmpaign Brown Silk Jacket w Extensive Beading & Embellishments

The Spring 2005 Prada show is one of the label's most iconic and recognizable of the Prada collections. I have had a one shoulder dress in the same fabric with the same beading from the show in the past and I was excited to have this jacket come in. The twin of the.jacket was shown in blue for the runway presentation and a longer, more coat feeling version in this same colour was also presented. The blue version was featured in the ad campaign that year. I love that you can see how versatile this jacket is and how you can change the look of it by belting it.

These embellished pieces were some of my personal favourites presented that season. The.colour of this jacket is amazing and when Vogue reviewed the show, they referred to it as being 'a brown-ochre-rust colour' and that perfectly describes it. The silk shantung that it is made out of has a slight metallic finish that adds a very subtle touch of glamour to the jacket. The cut of the jacket is simple. It has no collar and opens down the front with hidden hook and eye if you wish to close it. The shoulders are soft and slightly slope down which gives it an easy feel. The sleeves are long and the cut through the body is meant to just skim over you and it has a slight box shape. Starting around the collar and going down the front and curving around partway to the back is a band of heavily embellishments that mix large paillettes, large beads and colourful crystals. These are all set on a lighter coloured silk ribbon with a black silk netting behind the various clusters. Bands of that same elaborate detailing run around each cuff. We took lots of close-ups so you can see just how beautiful the work is . It is very well made and this is classically beautiful Prada. Excellent condition
