Prints to Cherish

Miuccia Prada apparently has a textile library that is the envy of fashion types the world over. I fantasise that it is housed in a gilt edged dungeon hidden behind multiple heavy oak doors.
The gifted Miuccia has drawn on this library for a new limited edition Print Collection. Comprised of a 50s inspired sun-dress, a shoulder bag and ballet flats, each item is identical apart from the pretty prints. Lovely, right?

Grazia Daily is ecstatic that the frocks are all priced under 500GBP, which is mighty cheap for Prada, but at around 800 Aussie dollars, is still a tad too expensive for me. And it is possible to find unique vintage prints on quality fabric for a fraction of that cost.
I found all these cotton frocks over at Clever Vintage on Etsy. Priced between $80 and $150, I reckon these pieces are mighty collectible too. The half Dutch in me loves the tulip prints on the first two.
