The Hunt for the PRADA Spring 2007 Skirt
(VOGUE - "White Russian" - March 2007)
(TheSartorialist.com - March 24, 2007)
I'm still on the hunt for this Prada skirt from the Spring 2007 collection! (By George, I will find you if I have to scour every consignment shop and listing on eBay until the world stops spinning!!!)
I remember when this look first debuted on the runway. I had two thoughts: (1) it's shockingly short, and (2) the entire collection was primarily done in Duchesse satin--quite impractical for a Spring/Summer collection, no?
I didn't think that such an abbreviated length could translate into reality. Then I saw how Anna Della Russo (editor at large for Vogue Nippon) paired it with black stockings. And I couldn't imagine such a luxurious fabric in a casual context until I saw how it was styled on Natalia Vodianova with an oversized classic white shirt.... Thus proving that this hot little number is indeed a wearable and versatile piece.
(Seems like I'm in a very Prada moment tonight!)
