Prada Black Lace Dress Runway Fall 2008
Lace is a remarkably traditional craft and fabric that has been a staple of couture for centuries. Typically seen as a quintessentially docile and feminine textile, in 2008, Prada of course took the opportunity to reimagine the power of lace into something modern and powerful.
Made entirely from a decadent black floral lace, this dress exudes an effortless sophistication. The transparent lace graces the upper torso and arms with fitted sleeves that complement the flattering hourglass silhouette finishing at a perfect knee-length hem.
On the back, the lace reveals more of the skin creating additional dimension that is accented by the floral appliques across the dress. This Prada dress is an exceptional black dress contender that would be unrivaled as your next cocktail go-to. This dress can be seen in the unlined version as look #29 from that season’s runway.
