Miuccia Prada Inspired

Miuccia Prada’s personal style is enviable and enduring — she sticks with what she likes. I, too, love pleated skirts, beautiful coats, and short-sleeved knits — a few of her signature pieces. Mrs. Prada’s own accessories keep her style from being too classic. I have a beloved Prada coat that I shortened to a jacket and it is from, no joke, circa 1995. Belted double faced wool — the jacket is perfection and I intend to wear it forever.

  • Ms. Prada is indeed an original and inspirational. I would love to see your adjusted 1996 coat! Talk about quality and style that last. Have never had an item from Prada that I did not absolutely adore.

  • I agree – Prada is forever. I am still wearing a pair of Prada flats that I can’t even remember how long I’ve had but still beautiful.

  • Agreed Preston! Many of my go-to basics are from Prada – cashmere knits, black skirts, coats – and they always go the distance. I still refer back to the late 90s collections for my daily uniform inspiration – along with Carolyn Bessette Kennedy (who often wore Prada). I really wish more modern designers designed for women with as much elegance and intelligence as Mrs Prada did in those years. In my eyes, nothing comes close.

  • Nothing like Prada quality. I have a nineties tote & shoulder bag both leather trimmed and worn to death..but they look like new!

  • Ditto the 90s Prada references and CBK! The ultimate fashion icon. 90s Prada was the best.
