Long hooded wool coat from Prada featuring an incredibly intricate fabrication that yields a nuanced and bold piece of statement outerwear. The main body is composed of two layers, a wool base and a soft mesh overlayer. The wool is tufted through in parts to create the blurred 'check' effect which mechanically attaches both layers together. In others, the two layers are left separate with the mesh floating over, the 'check' pattern subtlely visible underneath (visible at the lateral body, elbows, and shoulders). Near the cuffs and hems, this dual layer fabric instead blurs into a thick wool with a felted treatment.
The shape here is reminiscent of a naval deck coat but abstracted and tailored, with darts at the cuffs and hem to give a 3D curved shape.
Made in Italy 7.5/10 Condition, with one button missing at front closure and loosening of stitching holding the two layers of the hidden placket together at the neck. Everything else is in great condition with no rips, stains, or tears.
