2008 Prada James Jean Fairy Runway Ivory 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.
As seen as look 24 from the spring runway this Art-Nouveau styled dresse is done in an ivory silk challis with a detailed print designed by James Jean. Featuring an enchanted wonderland scene, tones of spiraling pomegranate and pewter spiral across the dress with accents of vivid yellow and green. The straight silhouette of the dress is offset at the shoulders with rippling cap sleeve details that seem to make the print come alive. The front features a wide scoop cutout. This plunging opening creates an edge to this otherwise conservative style.
Please note Prada sizing runs small, so refer to the measurements:
Bust: 31 inches
Waist: 26 inches
Hips: 34 inches
Length: 49 inches front, 50 inches back
At centre back, the dress closes with an invisible zip and snaps at the neck. Unlined, this silk challis dress comes with an ivory slip that can be worn underneath. 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.
