Purpose and Values
For Spring/Summer 2019, Prada has invited a series of globally influential female creatives to collaborate and to devise items for women crafted from Prada’s emblematic nylon fabric.
Cini Boeri, Elizabeth Diller e Kazuyo Sejima, a trio of leading female architects, have designed unique new pieces inspired by the qualities inherent in the fabric itself, and its place within Prada’s heritage.
The items represent a new evolution of "Prada Invites", a series of collaborative projects with leading proponents of design revolving around the universe of Prada nylon first unveiled at the men’s and women’s Fall/Winter 2018 show.
Created by women for women, this new chapter expounds and expands Prada’s ongoing fascination with multifaceted representations of contemporary femininity, as perceived by a multitude of female viewpoints. Here, that philosophy is expressed not only through the items themselves, but through the actual design process itself.
"Prada Invites" is presented on 20 September 2018 in Milan, alongside the Spring/Summer 2019 Prada Womenswear fashion show - a context serving as both a frame and a foil.
