Prada presents, for the occasion of the exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, a special re-edition collection of some of the bags that marked the brand’s history.
Timeless pieces and collectors’ items, the bags are reproduced in their original versions and will go on sale exclusively in New York.
This stylish timeline incorporates the years 1991-2005.
The design exhibition layout starts with the silk satin bag from 1991 and goes through the Savoy logo branded on brushed leather from 2005 via the Holliday and Brown prints from 2003.

Thank you, Prada, for this idea! No need for me to fly to New York to get my hands on those re-editions, I just had to look through my closet and explore my own archive from 1991-2005. Thank God, I have kept all these bags. Now, my closet is filled with many “new” pieces.
What a lovely surprise!
