Preceded only by “I love you” and “You were right”, “Made in Italy” is my favorite three word phrase. It never fails to fill me with a warm and fuzzy feeling (neither do the other two). So amidst the chaos of new flooring being installed in my flat and uncertain weather, once again cursed by every newspaper in the country’s prediction of a “bbq summer”, I threw on one of my favorite vintage Pucci dresses, sprayed myself in 4160 Tuesdays’ Rome 1963, set my hair (bring it on, English weather!), and stepped out to take in The Glamour of Italian Fashion exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum.
Barely escaping the carnage of a massive DIY project
I managed to sneak a few photos inside the exhibition before getting told off by one of the security guards.
Prada “a cosmos of its own composed of heavenly bodies set in a complex orbit” has essentially taken over Harrods with its Pradasphere for the entire month of May.
I returned to the exhibition on Harrod’s fourth floor for a second time to photograph this definitive offering of treasures from a brand whose name has been at the fore front of my fashion consciousness my entire life.
