ORIGINAL PIECES FROM THE PRADA FW2020 FASHION SHOW IN MILAN WILL BE AUCTIONED IN OCTOBER

The Prada Fall Winter 2020 womenswear collection is a consideration of the strength and an allusion to the inherent authority found in what is intrinsically feminine. The typical characteristics of femininity are championed and challenged, reflecting in visual and rhetorical examples that are deliberately combined to contradict and attempt to propose new meaning.

The Prada Fall Winter 2020 menswear collection presents synchronous yet antonymous viewpoints on tradition, on the known, on nature - human, and otherwise. A fantasizing of the classic.

Fashion has a duty not only to reflect its times, but to help shape them, to be a meaningful and useful tool, to affect change.

A number of auction items have already been unveiled on www.sothebys.com/prada. More details will be released soon, until the publication of the full catalogue, in time for the auction bidding from October 2nd till the 15th.

ORIGINAL PIECES FROM THE PRADA FW2020 FASHION SHOWS IN MILAN WILL BE AUCTIONED IN OCTOBER

Starting from October 2nd, 2020
 

For Fall/Winter 2020 season, the Prada campaign is proposed as an action - an online auction in partnership with Sotheby’s, staged in October. Proceeds generated will benefit Unesco educational projects, expanding education for vulnerable populations across the globe. 

The auction pieces are drawn from the Prada Fall/Winter 2020 men’s and women’s shows: one-of-a-kind garments and items worn by models during each fashion show, photographic prints, show invitations and elements of the runway décor.

The campaign visuals juxtapose backstage photography and precious artifacts, presented as in pages from an auction catalogue.

Clothes are objects of desire that remind us of emotion and experience: tools of memory of a precise moment within fashion and time, that on this occasion can help the future.
