Prada SS08 Collection

Sasha Pivovarova Modelling The Prada SS08 Collection


Prada has done the unthinkable – it's encouraged the world to wear its past season pieces.

The Italian fashion house is reissuing its spring/summer 2008 collection, which will be stocked solely in Dover Street Market in New York. The exclusive will no doubt be a boost for the newly opened outpost of the Commes des Garcons-owned store – although we're pretty sure no fashion fans need an excuse to go there.

First time around, the collection was pretty darned special. Illustrated with fairy designs by artist James Jean, Lara Stone, Isabeli Fontana and Sasha Pivovarova were just some of the names that modelled the pieces on the catwalk.

And this reissue just proves what we all already knew: Miuccia Prada's creations are timeless.

Still not convinced? This isn’t just any old capsule collection, this is a 12-piece hand-painted, organza capsule collection. And we want it all. Now, who do we know in NYC who can bag us a piece?
