Prada And Sotheby’s To Auction AW20 Collection

Including unique runway pieces, and the set from the show.

By Terry Christodoulou 22/07/2020

Prada and auction house Sotheby’s have partnered to sell pieces from the Italian fashion house’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection – with proceeds going to UNESCO educational projects.

Entitled ‘Tools of Memory” the auction showcases Prada’s understated approach to luxury through the sale of garments worn by models during the Milan runway show. The collection itself was a return to Prada’s most recognisable motifs in geometric prints, intarsia knitwear, and shearling-lined outerwear.

Not limited to clothing off the runway, the auction will encompass photographic prints, show invitations and runway props pulled directly from the January show.

The initiative follows the launch of Prada’s sustainability education program earlier this year and with the auction set for sale on October 2 – with a number of items unveiled on Sotheby’s website.
