Prada. The very word fascinates. It resonates with mystery and seductive detachment. It stands for fashion at its most artful and lofty, as perceived not only by consumers but countless designers for whom its aura beckons as a holy grail of aspiration.
The woman who fuels the mystique is as intriguing as her latest collection. Miuccia Prada and her brand thrive in pop culture to a near mythic extent on levels both high brow (last year’s “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” at the Met) and less so, the house name powerful enough to support a chick-lit guilty pleasure and ba-dah-boom one-liners on long-cancelled sitcoms (Grace: “Straight men wear Prada.” Will: “Not in Schenectady.”)
