The Prada Print Collection is Under £500!

Prada Print Collection

When we saw these beeeooootiful Prada dresses, naturally our first reaction was – nobody, but nobody does prints like Miuccia Prada (she has a vast textile library you know  - yes, like actual archived pieces of fabrics in a huge library in Milano). This is the new Prada Print Collection – which features a single dress, a 1950s summery style with a gathered skirt, which has been created in a range of fabrics from cottons to silks in Miuccia’s distinctively painterly patterns. Also in the range, ballerina pumps with ribbon bow in contrasting prints, and a shoulder bag on a chain strap in more prints inspired by fabrics from Miuccia’s archive. So far, so gorgeously Prada.

But here is the bit that stopped us in our tracks: every piece in the collection - which goes on sale mid-May – will all retail for below £500. Yep, uh-huh, we know.  Dresses retail for between £425 - £475 (depending on fabric and print), shoes for £235 (bags prices have yet to be confirmed). We had to email the press office to check there hadn’t been a mistake. But no, it’s all [a dream come] true. Just when we thought we couldn’t love Prada any more...
