To celebrate Miuccia Prada's co-starring role in the Costume Institute exhibition that needs no introduction, Prada has released a special collection of re-edition bags dating back to 1991. According to a press release, all of the bags "defined the brand's history" up to 2005, and they'll be available at the Broadway, Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue locations.

But Prada isn't the only one jumping on the relaunch bandwagon: Today, Diego Della Valle, the man who currently owns Schiaparelli, announced that he would be relaunching the entire brand. Looks like the impossible conversation is about to get a little more feasible.
