There’s something about Prada, isn’t there? I’m not the only one noticing how overwhelming Miuccia Prada’s bold influence has become lately. Her Spring Summer 2011 Prada collection tells no other story but one of brave fashion!
A seventies inspired collection in the Prada key looks interesting, with, apparently, no risky aesthetic incident. However, the vivid colors and the geometrical cuts feel so dramatic and theatrical that the complicated prints ensuing were a blessing for the eye and the spirit. Do click through and bring your inner fashion critic forth!
Horizontal stripes aren’t easy to pull by any silhouette. However, the colors and the width variations could seriously help. There’s something I like to play safe. Old school – matching two or more prints. And the house of Prada can pull that one pretty good. Even the zig zagued shoes fit in like a glove. Prada feels that black should definitely remain the new black except the occasional monkey prints, the neon colored and silver accessories. There’s no surprise there, nothing comes through as dramatic as black does.
And more – Miuccia loosened the inspirational latch by adding something of Josephine Baker’s 20s-30s follies. Lovely collection. Simple, yet sartorially effective, Prada Spring Summer 2011 was one of the loveliest shows of the season. (you can see photos of the entire collection here)
