Iconic Prada Red Lip Print Pleated Skirt, Spring 2000
The Prada S/S 2000 collection can be read as a take of early 20th century feminism, the collection having drawn inspiration from classics like Chanel and Schiaparelli. Blending the semi-professional silhouettes and earthy tones of smart attire, Prada also introduced shocking sheer elements and quite literal tongue-in-cheek prints that send a message of power-dressing and subtle sexuality.
One of the most coveted designs from the line, this skirt is made from an off-white silk crepe with rows of red lips printed throughout. Stitched pleats lay perfectly around a faced waist that give this skirt a beautiful dimension and a retro sweep at the knee length hem. This skirt was aptly featured in the 2012 Met exhibition Schiaparelli & Prada Impossible Conversations and can be seen in the images to the left on that season’s runway.

* there is a very tiny area of color bleed, which most likely occurred during the printing process of this skirt. You can see this in the detail pictures, though it is so minor you may even have a hard time finding it in the pictures (images 6 and 7) or in person. Typically on fine fabrics when screen printing is done there will be slight "smears" to the color. It happens on almost everything that's a light-weight print so it's likely not a defect.
