If there is something to be proud about shopping in Rome, is the gorgeous Prada boutique for men and women. It is located in via Condotti. The company just sent us the pictures of the new women resort collection 2019.
Nicole Phelps from Vogue Runway considered it as excellent and wrote an enthusiastic review. The first time I really discovered Prada was in the Nineties, when I was living in New York. Miuccia Prada made in the Big Apple a great come back. She staged her show in the Piano Factory the house's own New York headquarters on May 4th. The architects are Herzog and De Meuron on West 52nd street. She also hosted a table few days later at the Met Gala.
She showed the "ugly prints" that were iconics in the Nineties. She called them that way in the spring 1996 collection. She presented also lovely tailleurs, colourful collants and extravagant hats. Everything was updated to our time. A good mix of sports jerseys, Tshirts, zip polos and tailored coats. "It is my fantasy on what today for me is real" said Miuccia to the WWD. A collection of practical clothes to wear and feel confortable. Something special and extremely contemporary. She gives a good image to Italy in the world in an extremely delicate moment for my country. In Milano do not miss the great exhibition at Fondazìone Prada dedicated to Art between the end of the First World War up to the Fourties. Powerful and prestigious. Grazie Miuccia.
