Quote for Sunday

I have nothing against super-sexual fashion. What I am against is being a victim of it. To have to be sexy? That I hate. To be outrageously sexy? That I love.

Miuccia Prada, profiled in the New Yorker by Judith Thurman.

Things I didn’t know about Prada: she has a PhD in political science, she was once a member of the communist party in Italy and handed out pro-communism flyers while wearing YSL dresses and she refused to run for Italian parliament because she did not think that it would be fair for a woman as wealthy as she is to claim to represent the working class.

I think I have a new favourite designer.

Worth a read.

Schiaparelli and Prada, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art : The New Yorker.
