Get ready for a whole lot of Prada! I feel like I can’t escape talk of the Italian fashion house in anticipation of Ms.Prada’s soon-to-open exhibition at the MET’s Costume Institute. But not to forget people, Miuccia is only half of the equation, Elsa Schiaparelli’s work will also be on view in the exhibit which opens May 10th and runs through August 19th (all assuming no one ‘pulls a McQueen’ and requires an extension to keep up with the enormous demand). Nonetheless, in honor of tomorrow night’s fête, or as some know it, The Party of the Year, Prada enlisted American Vogue’s Creative director Grace Coddington to curate the FW12 looks on display in all of their New York boutiques. Special fall samples were brought in specifically for display and each store even received an early delivery of a limited amount of Pre-Fall pieces. In addition, I was told Grace brought the styrofoam head pieces on the mannequins (pictured below) with her from Vogue. The orange one bares a slight resemblance to Grace, no??
