Prada Archive Print Venice Postcard Sleeveless Midi Poplin Dress 2019
Fashion is about revision and remixing just as much as it is about novelty and innovation. Season after season, Prada consistently captures both of these key elements, creating unique designs that feel contemporary years after their debut. Miuccia Prada has a long-standing love affair with the Italian city of Venice, offering multiple versions of her highly collectible Venice postcard print on everything from dresses and scarves to handbags.
Done in cotton poplin, this archive Venice postcard print dress from Prada is youthful and sophisticated at once. The dress begins with a simple jewel neckline and sleeveless design that allows the print to take center stage. Softly gathered pleats at the bodice and skirt warp the print ever so slightly, giving it a visual movement of its own while asymmetric elements at the waist and hem offer a welcome twist on the otherwise straightforward A-line silhouette of the dress.
The multicolor print ranges from pastel shades of yellow, orange, blue, and pink to mint green, black, and purple on a white ground. The dress features a print of a Venice canal, complete with bridges, rows of brightly colored buildings, and black and red gondolas on blue-green water. The print is interspersed throughout with eye-catching geometric patterns that frame different sections of the dress while emphasizing the natural lines of the body.

The flared skirt falls in pleats from the fitted, elasticized waistline to a midi length several inches below the knee. At the right side of the waist, a pleated handkerchief panel lends the dress a dramatic fullness while also creating an asymmetric hem that finishes in a soft point at the front of the skirt.
A fabulous addition to the discerning fashion lovers’ wardrobe, this whimsical dress can easily be styled with a pair of heels or sandals and is the perfect choice for a summer party or special occasion.
Presumably from 2019, this Prada dress is in excellent condition and closes with a back zipper and hook closure.
