What? Rabbits, robots, guitars and bananas are imagined on 18-carat gold earrings, bracelets, pendants and necklaces.

Why? The jewellery offers a fresh interpretation of the symbols central to Prada’s past collections – and delivers it with a sense of irony.

Miuccia Prada has long been fabled for the use of characterful prints and motifs in collections. From bananas (as seen on bowling shirts, wrap skirts and dresses next to flame prints for Autumn/Winter 2018), to rabbits (which were central to the James Jean bag collaboration for Resort 2018), robots (that formed the basis of a playful limited edition capsule collection in 2016) and guitars (spotted on mens shirts for Autumn/Winter 2018), playful motifs are part and parcel with Prada’s identity.

Now, as a first for the brand, Prada rings in a line of contemporary, fine jewellery in gold, which looks to said symbols in the archive to relive its history. Created using CNC machining and precision casting of 18-carat gold and diamonds from suppliers with Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) certification – a not-profit organisation founded to promote practices from an ethical, social and environmental point of view – the fun designs promote an environmentally-sound and humanistic approach for you to wear them with pride.
