2008 Prada James Jean Fairy Collection Pink Print Silk Dress


Italian luxury brand Prada has made a mark with their refined styles and classic reinventions. However, the namesake designer Miuccia Prada is no stranger to considering creative twists. Stating that this collection was all about working from a “new inspiration”, Prada unlocks a mystical wonderland in her Spring 2008 Fairy Collection by employing curvilinear lines, delicate details, and fantastical yet demure tonal colors.

Featuring a striking print in colors of wine, burgundy, and taupe on a cherry blossom pink ground, this columnar dress has many crafted elements. First is the dramatic print illustration of a girl lying under a flower in full bloom near the hem. Near this area several exposed darts are stitched around the skirt providing some texture.

This story is echoed in the dresses petal sleeves that are contrasted with a black bias binding. The dress has a bound plunging scoop neckline that is balances by the stark rectangular waistband detail. To the left, a stitched ribbon breaks up the elaborate print. Though not seen on the runway, this dress has been photographed on celebrities such as Nicole Kidman. Please note Prada sizing runs small, so refer to the measurements.

Size: 38


Bust: 30 - 32 stretched

Waist: 25 inches

Hips: 34 inches

Length: 38.5 inches

Unlined, this dress has a very traditional bodice and skirt fit. Because it is made from a silk/elastane blend, the fabric has excellent stretch allowing for comfort while worn. It closes at the side with a zip. It is in excellent condition and professionally cleaned and pressed. 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.
