There are patterns aplenty in Prada’s 104-year-old archives, and some of the most iconic are now coming back out of storage for a special two-week made-to-measure shirt pop-up at Harrods, starting on Friday June 30.

Twenty-five prints from standout past Prada shows have been selected for the event, including Indian-accented rows of blue elephants, technicolour prints of lilies and densely sketched bunches of bananas. Each will be available in slim-fit, classic and bowling cuts (all £730 each), marking the first time that Harrods has offered a made-to-measure service for casual shirting. Measurements will be taken at the store and then sent to Prada’s Milan factory, where the turnaround time is about six weeks.

In addition to the banana motif (available in green and blue, as well as yellow) and the 1970s-style lily print (in vibrant orange and yellow, or more demure olive and navy), there is a gothic design featuring a pair of cherubs, the retro geometric Geo print in yellow and grey, and a smart red mosaic number. Prada’s SS17 swatch books will also be open during the pop-up, with each style available to order in the same made-to-measure options as the vintage prints.
