Prada Gold Metal Jacket Top & Skirt Set Spring 2009
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 2009 Spring collection was nothing short of iconic and featured a provocative array of dresses and ensembles done in crinkled fabrics.
As featured on that season’s runway, this gold metal jacket top and skirt set was the ‘holy grail’ piece of the season. Documented in many editorials and photographed for that season’s ad campaign by Steven Meisel, it continues to be highly collectible. Tailored from a crinkled gold foil fabric woven from 96 percent metal and 4 percent silk, this breathtaking set shimmers and catches the light.
The jacket begins with a simple jewel neckline and long sleeves that reach the wrists. The hem falls just above the hips in a simple yet chic silhouette that is slightly shorter at the back of the jacket. Three black ribbon closures along the center front placket offer a gorgeous contrast of color and may be tied in bows or sleek knots, allowing for versatile styling. The back of the jacket features a clever V-shaped cut-out that is framed by another black ribbon bow at the back of the neck.
