NO COMPARISON: Miuccia Prada had a bone to pick with the Costume Institute’s upcoming exhibition “Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada on Fashion,” to be held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this spring.

“It’s too formal; they are focused on similarities, comparing feather with feather, ethnic with ethnic, but they are not taking into consideration that we are talking about two different eras, and that [Schiaparelli and I] are total opposite,” said the designer before her show on Sunday. “I told them, but they don’t care,” she said with a shrug, resigned rather than upset. Referring to an interview with Baz Luhrmann, who serves as the show’s creative consultant, Prada added that “my way of thinking is there, at least in speech.”
