2000s Beaded Prada Bralette with Rhinestone Detail
Delicate and simple detailing elevates many of Prada’s collections. At times questioning the norms or a particular garment style, designer Miuccia Prada has frequently introduces layered ensembles and items reminiscent of lingerie which, according to Vogue, question the notion of seduction.
From one of Prada’s mid-2000 collections, this pewter silk bralette dons a gentle elegance in the detailing and the stitch work. The bra top possesses a generally angular neckline overlapping at the centre front. Across the bust and along the two straps beaded floral motifs with emerald, charcoal, and clear crystal beads that pop against the pewter fabric. At the bust graduated pointed arches are stitched to aestheticize the dart.
Just under the bust, a lattice rhinestone and embroidered band sits. The pure emerald stones contrast the grey and clear stones that complement their pewter ground. This top sits high at bust level and can be paired easily with sheer or other layering pieces to construct an understated glam outfit.
Size estimate: S
Width at bottom of hem: 27 inches
