Harrods celebrates Prada's ready-to-wear womenswear

May '14
UK-based department store Harrods is all set to open its much awaited in-store exhibition paying homage to the internationally famous Milanese fashion house Prada.
 
Titled as Pradasphere, the retrospective display aims to celebrate the almost 25 year history and evolution of the Italian label’s extremely popular womenswear brand, founded by its current head designer Miuccia Prada.
 
Slated to take place from May 2 to 29, 2014 at the store’s Brompton Road location in London, the exhibition, displayed in curved glass cases, is divided into different themes comprised of ready-to-wear clothing and fashion accessories.
 
The theme Continentalism is replete with European culture-inspired creations, Femasculinity showcases menswear-infused womenswear, whereas Modernity highlights white coloured knee-length minimalistic designs.
 
Figuration exhibits vibrantly printed ensembles, Animality includes animal skin and fur decorated pieces, while Excessivity highlights somewhat futuristic and over the top creations. 
 
Curated by a former Prada employee Michael Rock, the exhibition also includes a digital display showcasing footages of catwalk parades stretching back to 1988 as well as a 130 square metre pop-up-store selling special edition pieces from the label’s archives. 
 
Launched by Miuccia Prada in 1989, the first women’s ready-to-wear collection from the brand received critical acclaim for its clean lines, opulent fabrics and dropped waist pieces in basic colours.
 
Founded in 1913, Prada offers a variety of ready-to-wear, leather and fashion accessories. 
 
Established in 1834, Harrods is an upmarket department store that specializes in a range of luxury items.
