Shall we talk about Prada? Starting with a beautiful book by Laila Farran Graves because the little tome is a perfect introduction to one of the most influential and unique brands and its designer.

Despite being small, The Little Book of Prada covers every aspect of the house history from the brand's heritage and the yearly years, Prada aesthetics, collections, diffusion lines, accessories, beauty and fragrance to Prada involvement in art and related projects. In other words, you will certainly be able to maintain a conversation on a subject of Prada and train your eye on spotting and appreciating the signs and signatures that defined Miuccia Prada and her creative genius.

I loved it for the sheer fact of having enough information to read compared to other Prada-related titles where the visuals took the central stage. It felt like a perfect fashion appetiser for the elaborate Prada volume I picked last year and definitely was a book I wish I read before seeing the Pradasphere.

It was also special to be able to see a few shots and details of the garments and catwalk shows from the early 1990s and use them as a starting point tracing the evolution of the brand that began as a leather goods manufacturer and became an international fashion empire.
