PRADA "MADE IN... " Capsule Collection

PRADA is launching a capsule collection collaborating with artisans from around the world, using traditional craftsmanship, materials, and local manufacturing practices.

"Prada Made in Scotland" will be a collection of traditional tartan wool kilts from U.K.workshops using traditional manufacturing and weaving techniques.

"Prada Made in India" is the label for a collection of handmade garments from workshops that specialize in Chikan, one of the most ancient Indian embroidery. Items will consist of handmade ballerina flats, woven sandals and artisinal handbags.

A series of jeans produced by Dova, a leading denim manufacturer, will carry the label "Prada Made in Japan." The trousers can be custom ordered in four different varieties of cloth and seven different washes, making every article one of a kind.

"Prada Made in Peru" is a line of alpaca wool knitwear from the most traditional workshops of Peru.

What a concept! Who says that craftsmanship is long gone? I'm especially looking forward to "Made In Japan" and "Made In Peru".

Products available in stores in 2011.
