When I was still a young fashion blogger, I remember very vividly the collection that Miuccia Prada sent down her spring/summer 2011 runway. It had a riot of colour, print and a heavy dose of the ugly-chic aesthetic that she was so lauded for—blue monkeys danced across a top that was fashioned after hospital scrubs, baroque scrolls adorned shoulders and banana prints ran amok. No other fashion collection has stayed as strongly as that in my mind.
So when Prada sent word that it would be reviving 25 vintage and iconic prints for its Made-to-Measure Iconic Print Shirts service, and in Singapore, no less, it was just the right amount of excitement for my life at this moment. Among the prints available are, of course, the Banana print and Baroque print from the SS11 collection, and many others. You can order you own shirt (or shirts) at Prada’s Paragon store from 12 to 21 October 2017, and can be ordered in three fits: Slim Fit, Classic Fit or Bowling.
Prices range from $940 to $2000.
Prada is located at #01-45/46/47 Paragon, 290 Orchard Road.
