Everyone’s buying this mainstream take on Prada’s cult pink satin miniskirt

Each season sees a few cult items emerge from the catwalks, sparking a buzz almost as soon as they’re broken by the FROW – a buzz that continues for months as fashion lovers eagerly wait for said item to hit stores. Who could forget this Miu Miu set, so fabulous that it has its own dedicated Instagram account? Or the Loewe tank top everyone was asking for this summer?

For the Spring ’22 season, that standout and ultra-coveted piece was Prada’s candy-pink satin mini skirt: the perfect mix of the year’s biggest trends with its ultra-cropped hemline, luxurious feel, extravagant, its nod to Barbiecore and its hint of the year 2000. .

No wonder the street style ensemble has gone absolutely crazy about it, with the likes of Susie Lau, Amina Muaddi and Caroline Daur rocking it all at the AW22 shows in February with everything from a simple t t-shirt or crisp shirt to chunky knits.

The skirt itself went live in April in a variety of glorious shades, from orange and yellow to dark brown and our favorite light pink, selling out almost instantly despite the rather hefty £1,300 price tag.

It’s worth every penny if you can afford it, and it’s even back in stock online now – but what about us mere mortals? As we found ourselves browsing through the “New Arrivals” sections of our favorite brands recently, we came across a miracle: a incredibly similar piece from Arket, for just £59.

It might not have that dramatic train, but the on-trend ultra-mini hemline, luxe satin material, and perfect blush color are all there, and it’s made from a recycled polyester blend, which also grants him major durability points.

Market – £59

We will wear it with a simple white tank top for the end of the summer, and transparent black tights, a chic turtleneck and loafers in the fall. We recommend adding to cart now, because this little number from Arket won’t stick around for long – and not just because half of the SHE the team has already bought it…
