...Free shipping is great and returns but be warned returns are very slow and email response time almost non existant. dont expect an answer to your questions. Im lucky I didnt have major issues but feel for those that do as their customer service doesnt exist. However if your order is made properly and no faults on the items you will get your things fast and be happy. For me so far so good and have ordered 3 times over the years.
...So sad to read all the bad reviews, I had a great experience with CK when buying my oversized hoodie dress and lingerie. Delivery was quick and I loved the quality and have worn my items several times. Though admittedly I haven’t had to return anything yet so I’d be interested how their customer service is..

Miuccia Prada, born Maria Bianchi, was an unlikely successor to the fashion house founded by her mother’s family. Miuccia studied political science, joined the communist party, and trained to be a mime. By the time she joined the family business in 1970, the Prada brand was in decline. With the help of businessman Patrizio Bertelli, she revived it by creating a line of unlabeled handbags made out of Pocono nylon that were durable and water resistant. The line did not take off immediately when it was introduced in 1979. The handbags were re-launched in 1985 and this time the bags had a gold chain and the signature logo, and sales leaped.
