Prada Resort 2008 Pink Floral Silk Full Skirt
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. 2008 was an incredible year for Prada in which several of her collections, including the Fairy and Resort collections, were runaway successes. The Resort collection was composed of an array of classically pretty skirts, dresses, and retro pantsuits in a range of floral prints and polka dots that were paired with playful pumps and mules.
As seen as look #4 on that season’s runway, this wonderful Prada Resort skirt is a rare find that was featured in ad campaigns. Resort collections are produced in limited quantities to begin with, and this particular collection sold out soon after it was released. Other looks from the collection featuring the same print were photographed on many celebrities, including Eva Green for the January 2008 cover of British Vogue, Lily Allen, and many others.

Done in silk, the skirt features a winding floral print in shades of navy, eggplant, lavender, and green on a light pink ground. The skirt sits higher up on the waist and is pleated with origami-like folded panels at both the front and back skirt, that give it a full, bell-shaped volume.
The skirt falls from the waist to a midi-length at the calves, creating a striking 1950’s inspired silhouette that allows the print to shine. A special addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this Prada skirt can easily be styled with a silk blouse and statement heels, and is the perfect choice for a garden party or special occasion.
This vintage Prada skirt is unlined and closes with a concealed side zip. The print is signed ‘Prada’ throughout and is finished with stitching detail at the waist and hem. In excellent condition, this skirt 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.
