Turns out that with Miuccia and the Met, it's all good. We just heard from Prada PR that a statement about Prada's discord that originally ran in WWD was a "misquote." Here's how she really feels, according to a statement: "Miuccia Prada is honored and proud to take part in this exhibition which is 'an impossible conversation between Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiapparelli.'
