2000 Prada Rare and Collectable Silk Lipstick Print Capri Pants
Discerning vintage enthusiasts rank it among the top Prada pieces to collect. “I love that lipstick print,” Decades’ Cameron Silver told Vogue in 2012. Appearing originally on the spring/summer 2000 runway (and in the season’s ad campaign), the playful Pop Art pattern of makeup containers was a standout in what designer Miuccia Prada called her “ABC of fashion.”
These pants from that collection showcase it in a capri silhouette, sleekly tailored with a high waistline, a belt-loop banded top, a zip-fly front, bound vertical pockets at the hip and seams at the back of the knees. The silk fabric has just a bit of sheen and just a bit of stretch with the addition of nylon and elastane. Pair them with another print, as Prada did, or with solid separates.
Size estimate: XS/S
Waist: 26 inches
Hips: 36 inches
Rise: 8.5 inches
Inseam: 22 inches
