About

The Spring 2005 Prada show is one of the label's most iconic and recognizable. In her review of the show, Vogue's Sarah Mower stated: Just when the whole fashion world has turned ladylike—thanks, of course, to Miuccia Prada—she's tossed it all in the air, looking for a certain freedom. "A vague idea of birds; birds of vanity, like peacocks, parrots, and swans," was a starting point in her restless search for change, she explained. "I also wanted to move toward something more young and sporty, tall and narrow.... In broad terms, the news from Prada included a different silhouette (short hemlines, worn mostly with flat sandals), a return to one of her favorite palettes (brown-ochre-rust), and as always, lots of artful eccentricity (peacock feathers, flowerpot hats, Bakelite digital watches). There was also a Jamaican dance hall vibe, with reggae on the sound system, Rasta stripes in the knitwear, and Caribbean crochet in the raffia hats and cardigan coats. The birds really took flight for night, in the form of skirts overlaid with peacock feathers, dresses covered with digitalized feather prints, and pretty chiffon gowns whose fan-like pleats hinted subtly at dove's wings."

This is Look 48 from the show and one of my personal favorite pieces. It is in that color mentioned above, a brown-ochre-rusr, with a slight sheen to the silk wool mix fabric. It is cut short and simple with a little A-line cut skirt and that fabulous one shoulder shilhouette. Black insets define the shape and cut and the front middle panel of the skirt is heavily embellished with cut out shapes, beads and crystals anchored over black lace shapes cut to match each embellishment. The fabric choice allows for that wonderful shape to stay true when it is one the body and the jeweled appliques are striking. Excellent condition
