In 1989 Prada launched its first women's ready-to-wear collection, the designs came to be known for their dropped waistlines and narrow belts and Prada's popularity skyrocketed. Prada's originality made it one of the most influential fashion houses and the brand became a premium status symbol in the 1990’s. Men's ready-to-wear collections were launched in the mid 1990’s.
Prada is the first book that documents three decades of fashion, architecture, film and art including the work of the design studio and the workshop. The book documents the craftsmanship of the factories, it has images of the fashion shows and it gives an overview of all Prada's collections with thumbnail pictures of many different looks. The book isn't all visuals it does have some written details about the production, designs and each aspect of Prada from initial ideas through to point of sale.
I can’t say in all honesty that I like all of Prada’s work, at times their use of fabrics, the silhouette, colour and pattern choices are not always to my taste and I find some of their footwear and bags ugly. I don't feel this book will be for everyone. But if you collect, wear or just appreciate Prada then you must have this book, which is beautifully presented with true Prada styling.Read more ›
Beautifully made, a real journey through a fashion house across time and trends, styles and events. Not your average puff piece coffee table book.
