What I wore: day 4

Posted on April 04 2011

destination: dinner

jeans: top-shop

sweater: prada

necklace: vintage

hat: vintage

bangles: h&m

purse: prada

Now I wanted to add something else since I’m looking at this Prada purse; it made me think of a comment from a reader (see here).  The purse has a metal clasp in the shape of a monkey.  The monkey reappears in the Spring 11 collection on dresses and purses as seen below,(who knows why, I can make some intelligent guesses which I’ll keep to myself lest it gets misconstrued)  I wanted to add to my response to that comment, that this monkey motif  is replicated from an original design by Mario Prada from 1925.
