Prada James Jean Fairy Runway Yellow Silk Dress, 2008
Italian luxury brand Prada has made a mark with their refined styles and classic reinventions. However, the namesake designer Miuccia Prada is no stranger to considering creative twists. Stating that this collection was all about working from a “new inspiration”, Prada unlocks a mystical wonderland in her Spring 2008 Fairy Collection by employing curvilinear lines, delicate details, and fantastical yet demure tonal colors.
This soft yellow, sheer silk dress speaks to the whimsy and femininity of this collection. The sheer fabric highlights an intricate James Jean print in a blue-green color that has a wispy visual rhythm. This style encapsulates the balance between daring and docile. Pairing together a deep plunging scoop neck, the frill collar provides contrast—both being accented by black binding.
The dress has elbow length sleeves and is a modest at the hemline. It was featured on the 2008 Prada runway as look 36 as well as in Harper’s Bazaar, Korea on Denisa Dvorakova photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg. Please note Prada sizing runs small, so refer to the measurements.
Shoulders: 14 inches
Sleeves: 13 inches
