My Review: Prologue
As described in my previous post, Prologue is indeed sleek and modern, with clean lines and simple details. If you're into all that - and if this line fits you - then go for it! But what I found was a mishmash of cheap fabrics, drab colors, and extreme silhouettes - meaning either excessively big (like balloon sleeves and skirts to the ankle) or small (think shrunken sweaters and cropped tops). The faux leather, in particular, is dreadful and feels like plastic. It was the exact opposite of this description by Bustle, which said of Prologue "Since the designs and silhouettes are so simple, the label decided to really focus on expensive looking and feeling fabrics to elevate the looks." Wrong!
I did try on this basic black dress. With the attached wrap belt, it looked very much like something Zara or Mango would offer. But when I tried my usual size, I was swimming in it. So on a positive note, I guess in some Prologue styles you can go at least one size down. My advice would be to definitely try some looks on in store before ordering online to get an idea of how this line fits your body.
What about you, readers? Have you seen (or bought) anything from Prologue yet, and if so, what are your thoughts?
