Prada pulled a fast one on the fabulous people at Cannes by surprising them with a short (and charming) fashion film.
Just in case you wanted to own a piece of Met Gala history, here’s your chance! Carey Mulligan is auctioning off the custom-made Prada halter dress that she wore to the fashionable fête on eBay to raise money for Oxfam America.
After last year’s blockbuster Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit, the Costume Institute had a dilemma. How could it possibly top such a remarkable show? The answer, of course, is it couldn’t.
We never thought we’d end up with so much Prada on the worst dressed list for an event in honor of the brand, but it just goes to show that label isn’t everything. On an evening where everyone’s watching (and werking) there really is no room for error.
And the countdown begins! Tomorrow at 6:30PM (that’s less than 24 hours from now!) we will all be collectively glued to our Met Gala livestreams, taking in the red carpet in outfits decidedly more comfortable (and, alas, decidedly less fabulous) than the ones we will be seeing on screen. What to expect? Well here are the dates, dresses, and tables we know of so far:
Well, this is fun. Prada tapped graphic designer Vahram Muratyan (he of the excellent Paris versus New York) to create to a whimsical spring accessories campaign.
After the year Prada had, we’re pretty sure they can do whatever they want. Which might be why, after debuting their Hot Wheel-inspired sandals, the Italian fashion brand is making a different kind of sartorial statement with a new pair of (literally) smoking stilettos.
Let it be known: 2011 was Prada‘s best year ever.
It was a prints party over at Prada for Fall 2012, where designer Muiccia Prada sent models down the runway in a sartorial symphony of brightly colored geometric designs in the form of dress-like coats over pajama bottom pants, cropped suits with mismatched blouses, and even briefcase totes to match.
While most of their thespian brethren were getting drunk at the Golden Globes, a handful of Hollywood’s hottest men were walking in Miuccia Prada‘s mens ready-to-wear show in Milan.
Wearing a custom, one-of-a-kind Prada gown to the Golden Globe awards is no small feat, and Zooey Deschanel pulled it off with aplomb.
When it came down the runway, we didn’t fully appreciate Prada‘s 1950′s automobile-inspired spring collection. But now that we’ve seen the ad campaign, we’re starting to get the point.
Wondering when all that money from the Prada IPO was gonna start trickling into the company’s long term operational plan? Turns out the answer is right in time for Christmas! That’s when the heavily leveraged Italian fashion house will unveil its newest product category: jewelry.
You know what would keep your boyfriend really work when you drag him out to go figure skating with you this winter? Two layers of Prada lurex, that’s what!
Gwyneth Paltrow is a polarizing figure. You either love her — she sang “F*ck You” on Glee! — or you hate her — she’s as condescending as she is out to lunch. But you kind have to admit that she’s got sick style. And Paltrow put those sartorial chops on display Saturday night in a blush-toned, bow-backed Prada dress at the Venice Film Festival premiere of her new film, Contagion.
A number of technology blogs have reported on leaked pictures of what appears to be a Jil Sander branded cell phone today. And while the project is certainly exciting, the first thing we did when we saw the photos was scratch our heads and say, “Why?”
Fast food uniforms aren’t known for being the most fashion-forward, but who says that has to be the case?
Giorgio Armani can dish it, but he just can’t take it. The Italian designer wrote a full newspaper editorial defending himself against Tod’s chairman Diego Della Valle, who criticized Armani last week for calling Prada‘s public listing on the Hong Kong stock exchange a dumb idea.
If you thought everyone in the fashion industry was impressed with Prada‘s multi-billion dollar listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, you were wrong. Giorgio Armani dismissed rival Miuccia Prada‘s new business venture as nothing more than a clever way to cover up her debts. He also called her clothes ugly.
