Her aesthetic was like no one else’s at the time and still retains a distinct decorative modernism. Interiors were just the beginning.

For those of you who remember the original Prada lip print, you’ll be happy to know you can now satisfy your lip print craving at a much lower price point! Why not try a Marc by Marc Jacobs watch or iPhone case for $125 and $21 respectively? And if you are still regretting not buying that Prada lip print the first time around, I heard a rumor that they’ve reissued it.
