Founded in 1913, Prada has evolved into a brand with a unique ability to embed thought-provoking, clever ideas in totally pleasurable objects—from shoes and bags to coats, dresses, and skirts, the clothing makes a statement. And Pradasphere—both in its package and content—does the same.

Pradasphere is a collection of archival objects arranged to reveal the complex, often- intertwined obsessions of one of the world’s most influential designers. The book takes you on an aesthetic journey that spans the past 30 years. Exclusive photographs of clothing and accessories illustrate Prada’s design narrative and show the exquisite craftsmanship and materials behind the creations. Pradasphere also explores Prada’s culture, including advertising photography, architecture, and commissioned films by directors such as Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott.
