Pure Prada. A new collection of foulards and scarves create a new wardrobe of Prada prints, drawing on emblematic patterns and approaches from the Prada archive and current seasons, rediscovering and reworking them afresh. They are used to create timeless accessories – definitive accents to a look, across four themes: DOUBLE MATCH, PITTORESQUE, BAROQUE and FANTASY.
The ‘DOUBLE MATCH’ group boldly combines signature yet contrasting Prada prints as inspired by the striking juxtapositions from the Prada Pre-Fall 2018 womenswear collection – icons, approached iconoclastically.
‘PITTORESQUE’ showcases hand-drawn picture-postcard views of significant cities around the world – Milan to London, Moscow to Shanghai, a wide-ranging global journey in brilliant hues.
The ‘BAROQUE’ foulards draw inspiration from the seminal graphics of the Prada S/S 2011 ‘Minimal Baroque’ collection, for a sumptuously-coloured duo of scarves in patterns influenced by the curlicues and arabesques of barocco décor.
‘FANTASY’ proposes fantastical illustrations of the impossible – a surreal world of the feminine and the floral depicted by James Jean and Jeanne Detallante, the wild reveries of Prada.
Offered in a spectrum of sizes – both square and rectilinear – the foulards are crafted from silk-twill with hand rolled edges.
The Prada ‘DOUBLE MATCH’ foulard collection is on sale now; the accompanying trio of collections will join throughout the beginning of 2019, offered to clients at selection of Prada boutiques across the world, and via the digital flagship prada.com.
