Timeless chic: Prada Fall 2004

23/01/2014

Prada Fall 2004
“A dream of extreme romanticism… The idea of eighteenth-century painting, with video games. A romanticism between past and future.” is how Miuccia Prada described her Fall/Winter 2004 collection inspired by paintings of German artist Caspar David Friedrich and technology. For me, it was all about details…

The scrumptious prints and moody tweeds, sparkling drops of crystals on waist-cinching grosgrain ribbon belts and brooches, puffy skirts, chiffon dresses, soft fox fur scarves tucked into a simple t-shirt, and delicate cardigans for extra warmth… And there were the robots and ribbons, velvet and fur, leather and metal all mixed up in a way only Prada (and later on, Van Noten perhaps) could do.

Something from ten years ago that can be loved and worn today is the reason why I adore Miuccia so much – for being a rule-breaker and an explorer capable of designing thoughtful, beautiful and absolutely fascinating collections that capture imagination and give us something to adore forever.

The beautiful and mysterious campaign that accompanied the season featured Raquel Zimmermann, Karen Elson, Gemma Ward and Elise Crombez was photographed by Steven Meisel. Oh, those details… I can’t stop looking at them. It’s just like art, it moves me.

  2. The third look is something I easily see myself wearing, as I'm all for mixing a print tee with fancier skirt, although I would probably go for a different shape.
