When Mario Prada, together with his brother Martino, opened their first store in Milan over a hundred years ago in 1913, little did they know that their small leather goods store would one day morph into an iconic symbol of Italian aristocracy and become one of the most trusted names in luxury fashion.

From exquisite clothes and shoes in vogue to beautifully crafted handbags and accessories, Prada continues to live up to its name and heritage as a connoisseur of luxury apparel and accoutrements with the launch of its latest collection, December 2021 Issue.

Unconventional codes

Aptly named to coincide with year-end festivities and celebrations, the December 2021 Issue collection by Prada is designed to bring you to any soiree in the snazziest threads.

True to its ethos, the House of Prada has consistently challenged the conventions of fashion and is gutsy enough to juxtapose various modes of dress. Unafraid to reinvent and break the rules, each design sees stitches that boldly contradict conventional codes in order to reveal that unexpected “wow” factor.

In its spunky collection, discover the magnetic beauty of fusing daytime and eveningwear into unique regalia. Reflecting modernism yet retaining a sense of classicism, luxurious allure is fused with smooth lines and clean compositions that exude dramatic flair and dynamic energy, even on simple silhouettes.

Style that sparkles

Perfect for the party, the new collection features dapper designs that blur the lines between fine couture and sleek sportswear, so you can mingle with friends and enjoy the occasion in casual comfort while looking impeccably sharp at the same time.

With the clever use of well-placed sequinned embroideries, pavé-set crystals and studs as well as the glisten of metallic lurex, each piece is elevated in ritzy grandeur, transforming your look into one of glitzy glamour even as it retains sleek simplicity.

For instance, embroideries that normally only show up at special occasions are now woven into garments that are suited for everyday wear. A tuxedo that is usually worn at formal functions lends its satin strip to utilitarian outfits, while its masculine style is brazenly transported onto womenswear as well. 

Star of the evening
