Prada is usually synonymous with the best of Italian craftsmanship—but for spring, the Milanese luxury house is offering a carefully curated selection of items sourced from other countries. The “Made in…” project identified areas of the world closely linked to certain product categories, such as denim from Japan, tartan wool kilts from Scotland and alpaca wool sweaters from Peru.
The initiative was inspired by designer Miuccia Prada’s late grandfather, Mario Prada, who founded the company in 1913 and was known for traveling the world in search of exotic skins, rare fabrics and specialized manufacturers. In that vein, the Prada Made in Japan jeans are manufactured by Dova, a preeminent denim producer. The Prada Made in Peru alpaca sweaters are hand-knit in traditional workshops of Peruvian “campesinos,” or farmhands.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
