Prada Runway Postcard Print Cotton Circle Skirt, 2004


Italian fashion house, Prada, is known for their status at the forefront of luxury fashion. Through comingling a clean tailored aesthetic with at times highly experimentalist techniques, Prada embodies a style that is as modern as their market. This 2004 postcard-print, midi-length circle skirt from their spring/summer collection articulates the brand’s experimentation with concepts of vintage style, pastiche, and world traveling. The 2004 spring/summer collection incorporated numerous button-front shirts, and varying shades of khaki drawing inspiration from explorer, and expedition garb.

A simple silhouette made of screen printed cotton broadcloth has over time been inducted into the pantheon of iconic ready-to-wear pieces. Of this particular skirt, in a 2017 article in Vogue, acclaimed fashion journalist Lynn Yeager notes that since the runway debut that she has “…never completely gotten over letting its whimsical charms slip away.”

With a muddled, earthy color story, this screen-printed design on the skirt depicts a streetscape in Milan which emulates an ink-wash sketch. Detailed with a geometric border, and gold and red striped accents, the skirt acts both as an homage to cross-cultural charm, and as a quite literal instance of wearable art. Here, Prada invites a sense of wonder through quite simple means of form, and motif.

This must-have Prada midi-skirt is in excellent condition. Unlined, the light-weight cotton fabric allows for a crisp yet fluid drape emphasizing movement as the full sweep of the skirt falls at the mid-calf.

A hidden side zip fastens the skirt, and is further fitted at the waist with a ribbed elastic waistband while having a relaxed fit through the hip. Professionally 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.
