Prada Spring 2009 Gold Metal and Silk Sleeveless Cocktail Dress with Tags Runway

About

No designer has done more for making women rethink the slip dress than Miuccia Prada. As with so many garments once privy to the boudoir, she has exposed it, elevated it and reinterpreted it to stunning effect time and time again. This version from her spring 2009 collection and the season’s ad campaign photographed by Steven Meisel is one of her most iconic. It shimmers in a stunning wrinkled gold foil fabric woven from metal and silk. “Rumpled and crinkled fabrics have been appearing all over this season,” wrote Vogue’s Sarah Mower after seeing the show, “but never with such sly intent.” Mower continued, “Her girls… might have been passing through on their way to or from lovers’ assignations.” This dress was look 38 on the runway and was shown on a model wearing a chignon, drop pearl earrings and a platform heel. But of course you could wear the collector’s piece dressed up similarly for cocktails or dressed down with other layers. With a super-soft luxurious silk lining, the figure-flattering silhouette feels amazing on the body and goes on easily with a discreet side zipper. Measurement: Bust: Waist: Hips: Length: This Prada slip dress from the spring 2009 collection is in excellent condition. It has not been worn and still has all its original tags. It is tailored from a crinkled gold foil fabric woven from 96 percent metal and 4 percent silk. It is lined in black silk satin. The above-the-knee-length cut has a tank top neckline, which is finished by rolling over and stitching down the fabric to expose its more bronze side. A 12-inch side zipper opens and closes the garment. 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.
