The Artisans Wear Prada

There is no doubt that the world loves Prada. It is one of the most iconic labels of all time, and it has gotten name drops in both a movie and a band titled "The Devil Wears Prada", among many others. But why is Prada so fantastic? What makes this label stand out?

One answer that immediately comes to my mind is "hard work". Since 1913, Prada has thrived on its original and well thought out designs, precedented by the label's creator, Mario Prada. Mario was known for using unique materials, such as alpaca and tartan, to form his designs.

Very soon, Prada will be revisiting Mario's old mantra. Prada will be coming out with a capsule collection made by international artisans in the year 2011, a collection lovingly christened "The Made In ... Project". It will include ballerina flats and handbags handmade in India, alpaca knits from Peru, tartan kilts sourced in Scotland and jeans by Dova in Japan. Prada's original breathtaking beauty will once more hit the runways, and the new designs are expected to be of high quality with unique, eyecatching colors and textures. I'm pretty excited to see the new collection, and I'll be sure to keep you posted!
