About this title

Synopsis:

Waist Down: Skirts by Miuccia Prada delves into Prada's extensive collection of creations, dating back to 1988, and pays homage to the simple skirt, the often overlooked and underappreciated stepsister of those more glamorous figures, the dress and the coat. In this remarkable book, Kayoko Ota, Rem Koolhaas's think tank AMO, the design firm 2x4 and Prada staff in Tokyo, Milan and New York explore and honor the skirt, celebrating it as a vehicle of movement and shape. Tulle, pleats and printed patterns are fanned out like flowers against white backdrops, running off the edge of full-bleed pages, their photos glazed and varnished. Thumbnail images of each model are indexed with listings of their details. Waist Down is a fascinating view into Prada's designs, and a stimulating investigation of the skirt as a wondrous zone of invention, as central to the brand as the brand is to contemporary fashion.

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
