After the Burberry Prorsum show, I rushed to Via Montenapoleone really quick to pick up some of the fall/winter 2012 Prada pieces I sent for alteration. I saw this lady from a far, casually strolling down the street, sporting a canvas bag and that distinct stripe from the spring 2011 collection.
A few meters later, I saw another lady carrying the same bag, wearing the same shoes. Click click click!
YES. I had to backtrack and photograph both women.
YES, lady #1 came up to lady #2 for a chat.
I thought it was way too good to be true until I saw the third thing the ladies had in common — look at their watch/bracelet/cuff.
And then look at the paperbags they were carrying.
I smell a Swatch marketing ploy at Prada’s expense. True or not?
