Prada Python Green Fur Coat Runway 2011
Python was the essential exotic print on the Fall/ Winter 2011 runway, replacing leopard as the must have trend of the season from the previous year. With collections by houses such as Missoni, Gucci, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton incorporating python on everything from pants to jackets, python became the instant glam accessory, though Prada’s collection stood out for its tongue in cheek line up of “good girl” silhouettes, which was largely comprised of drop waist dresses and coats.
"It’s very complex” said Miuccia Prada of her 2011 Fall/Winter collection, which included python trompe l'oeil high heel boots and handbags. "… I started with the idea of women’s obsessions with typical materials like fur, python, and paillettes, but then to introduce freshness and innocence to turn them into something different.” From that collection, this magnificent python coat is quintessential Prada at its best, presenting a modern idea of beauty while masterfully balancing color, print, and texture.

Evoking the laid back glamour of the jazz-age, this twenties-style coat hits all the right notes. Made from brown and beige python, the coat features a gorgeous bottle green and brown fur lapel edged in black python, creating a bold contrast of color and texture that draws the eye. Falling just-so from lightly structured shoulders, the coat has a simple boxy silhouette that allows the python and fur to take center stage, the hem reaching a few inches above the knee.
Beginning with a plunging neckline and long sleeves that reach a few inches above the wrist, this coat is beautifully tailored and finished with brown stitching detail at the flap pockets and front opening. Closing at the front placket with three large plastic beige buttons, this coat is more formal in nature and is the perfect choice for a night out on the town.
This 2011 Prada coat is fully lined in brown silk, finished with two flap pockets and button closures at the front placket. In excellent condition, this python and fur coat 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.
