oh so Prada
I almost forgot that the Prada book was recently launched until I went on the Prada website trying to look for wallet styles for Christmas present. The book, beautifully bound in Prada's signature faux pressed leather, documents the fashion house's every runway collection, ad campaign, and product catalog since Muiccia Prada became creative director in 1987. Besides all the pretty clothes and covetable leather goods that we are so familiar with, the book also covers Prada's involvement in the artistic world from architecture to animated films to its Rem Koolhas-designed epicenter stores. It is truly visually stimulating, the book, and reminded me why Prada is, well, Prada. If you don't believe me, check out the website or better yet flip through the actual thing at a Prada store and you'll sure be awed.
