Prada’s Vintage-Inspired Separates for a New Dover Street Market.
Prada has taken up permanent residence on the top floor of the much-anticipated seven-story Dover Street Market New York, which opens Dec. 21 in Kips Bay, one of the few Manhattan neighborhoods not yet associated with fashion. But Miuccia Prada isn’t treating the space like just another opportunity to peddle her coveted merchandise. Along with the tropical resort clothes stocked at her boutiques this time of year, the market will also feature her first-ever collaboration with Dover Street, which she created especially to celebrate the store’s opening. The rich color scheme and heavy materials of the capsule, featured here in an exclusive sneak peek, feel very seasonally appropriate. The 12 women’s styles — including knee-grazing pleated skirts, austere Shetland wool knits, Mary Jane shoes and three timeless handbags — were inspired by classics from past Prada collections but will don a very distinctive label: Prada Dover Street Market New York.
