Following the launch of the sustainability education program earlier this year, Prada and Sotheby’s have teamed up as a part of the former’s Fall/Winter 2020 campaign. The Italian fashion house has announced it will be holding an auction with Sotheby’s to raise money for UNESCO educational projects.
Artifacts up for auction will include photographic prints, show invitations and runway props – all of which have been pulled from the Prada Fall/Winter 2020 men’s and women’s shows. The collection, which was shown in January, was a return to some of Prada’s most recognisable styles: geometric prints, intarsia knitwear, and shearling-lined outerwear were among the highlights. At the time, HYPEBEAST said that the it “toe[ed] the line between uniformity and the avant-garde.”
The auction will launch on October 2, with a small number of items being unveiled on Sotheby’s website from July 20. Further details will be released over the coming months before the full auction catalogue will be published online in time for the launch of the auction.
