Prada Orange Black Sequin Flapper Dress S/S 2011 Beijing Limited Edition
Typically, Prada’s signature is artistic yet refined. The 2011 Prada Spring collection, described by the inimitable Miuccia Prada as “minimal baroque” drew on a number of sources of inspiration, including 17th century artwork, flapper dresses, and Jazz age icon and actress Josephine Baker. The result was a spectacular collection that ranged from spaghetti strapped dresses to cotton suits featuring bold stripes, bright colors, and eclectic prints in a youthful, stylish celebration of spring.
The collection was so successful that Prada reissued it a second time for Chinese clientele in Beijing. The Beijing collection included exclusive new pieces and re-worked versions of select looks from the original collection that was shown in Milan. From the Beijing collection, this phenomenal sequin flapper dress is a special, limited-edition piece.
Done in bold stripes of glittering black and bright orange sequins, this exquisite flapper inspired dress is designed to perfection. The sleeveless bodice begins with spaghetti straps and a deep V neckline, the open décolletage bringing a nice lightness to the sequin-covered dress. The angular, low-cut bodice at the back and sides of the dress introduces a revealing risqué element that makes this dress even more daring. The skirt falls from a straight, flapper style waist, creating a knee-length 20’s style silhouette.

At the hem, an incredible fringe composed of hanging orange and black beads extends the length of the dress while adding another dimension of glamour. At the center back of the skirt a long slit reveals another panel of the same fabric, giving this dress extra depth and textural movement. A dazzling addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this Prada dress is the perfect choice for a night out on the town and can easily be styled with a pair of heels and statement accessories.
This 2011 Prada dress is fully lined in silk and closes with a concealed side zip. In excellent, pristine condition. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
