Prada Bronze Metallic Crochet Dress, 2000s
Prada designs consistently emit a sense of reserved experimentation. Through the mixture of classic silhouettes and meticulous textile techniques, Prada successfully reinvents timeless design staples into contemporary and stylish pieces. Prada’s 2021 crochet tote bags were a fashion sensation, but the house has already demonstrated its prowess with crochet many times over. From the early 2000s, this crochet dress is a prime example of Prada’s timeless aesthetic.
Masterfully done in a coated wool, sienna yarns are crocheted together to create a statuesque, metallic bronze dress. The A-line dress begins with cap sleeves and a scoop neckline that bring a youthful lightness to the wool. The open crochet pattern shifts density as it falls from the empire waistline beneath the bust to a flared, scalloped hem several inches above the knee, giving the dress a pleasing visual movement of its own.
Size estimate: Small
Bust: 32 inches
Waist: 26-28 inches
Hips: 34 inches
Length: 36 inches
The sleeves, neckline, and waistline are finished in a braided crochet pattern, adding charm and a nice textural contrast that pulls the dress together visually. The dress is fitted throughout to create a slender silhouette and can be worn regardless of the season. A special addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this chic metallic dress is the perfect choice for a fall wedding, evening soiree, or special occasion and can easily be styled with heels and statement accessories.
This Prada dress comes with a nude silk slip and simply slips on over the head for easy wear. In excellent condition, it has been professionally eco dry 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.
