The fashion house Prada has opted to postpone its cruise show, which was to be held in Japan on May 21, 2020, reports Women's Wear Daily. The decision has been taken as a precaution in the light of uncertainties regarding the spread of the coronavirus, points out the specialist website.
Just when it seemed that all the i's had been dotted for the next cruise show season, Prada has decided to postpone its planned event in Japan. In response to the spread of the coronavirus, Prada has decided not to take any risks and has opted to postpone its cruise show. The new date and location should be announced soon.
The Italian company had previously announced its intention to organize its mid-season presentation in Japan without specifying the exact venue where the show would take place.
"Prada extends its sincere sympathies and concern to all the people and territories affected by this situation", announced the Italian fashion house in a statement reported by WWD.
This latest news will only result in a minor alteration to what is a particularly heavy schedule of cruise shows this year. Giorgio Armani is expected to kick off the season with a show in Dubai on 19 April. Hermès will present its show in London on April 28, Chanel in Capri on May 7, Dior in Lecce on May 9, Ermanno Scervino in Monaco on May 14, Versace in the United States on May 16, Gucci in San Francisco on May 18, Alberta Ferretti in Rimini on May 22, and Max Mara in St. Petersburg on May 25.
