Florals? For spring. Groundbreaking. – Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada
If you’re like us at LePrix, not only do you have quotes from The Devil Wears Prada
memorized, but you’ve also gone through our site to look for some of the perfectly pre-loved, vintage Prada and Miu Miu items that were featured in the movie (and on runways)!
So, while florals for spring isn’t exactly new, Prada is groundbreaking! As one of the most iconic, influential and innovative brands in the fashion world since 1913, Prada has done an amazing job of inventing and reinventing the fashion wheel to remain relevant, revolutionary and influential.
Of course, Prada keeps it in the family. Currently Prada’s designs are run by Miuccia Prada, who also has her namesake line and Prada's little sister, Miu Miu, which was launched in 1993 to cater to younger consumers and celebrities with a slightly lower price point. So, I've even included some of Miu Miu's fanciful designs as well.
Miuccia released her first set of military spec nylon totes and backpacks in 1979 and while they weren’t an instant success, those carryalls did eventually go on to become her first commercial hit. And now they're totally iconic, but I'm more of a leather or exotic skin girl myself...nylon's just a little too campy for me.
Well, I scoured our site to find some of the coolest Prada and Miu Miu designer resale pieces that our consignment boutique partners have in store. Check them out!
Set the streets on fire—literally—in these brilliant pink and black Prada wedges that are trimmed with laser-cut flame accents. Kendall Jenner looked extra hot when she pounded pavement in the same design in orange and yellow.
Miu Miu initially caught my eye with the Matelassé Coffer Bag that every cool girl in NYC carried in 2005. In 2007, I finally got my hands on the bow bag, but since then Miu Miu has upped their game and gotten even more current with this patent leather crossbody bag, amongst other designs!
There was a time when having a Prada wallet was the epitome of fashion girl chic. During lunch, women would leave their oversized bags at their desks and tote their Saffiano wallet that was adorned with the iconic triangle symbol. While this floral velvet wallet doesn't feature that logo, it does have beautiful embellishments and a golden Prada emblem.
I'm loving the Prada Cahier bag. When I was in London at Selfridges, I kept going back to the Prada boutique to stalk one in black leather with gold hardware. Just in time for the holidays, this design is crafted in plush purple and burgundy velvet, anchored by an adjustable chain strap and adorned with the Prada logo.
