MFW: Prada

    "Everyone has a theory about their collections these days, but I'm sick of theory. This collection is about the pleasure of fashion."
- Miuccia Prada

    No theories to study here folks, but there was a delightful intimation of the 70s in Miuccia's collection this season. And what better decade to play upon whilst in the pursuit of joy in dressing? It was, after all, the time of Peacock attire, when men puffed up their feathers in vibrant hues and prints and paraded about in relish of their own fabulous mod. I mean, Brady Bunch prints and long layers over pants...what's not to love?
    There was also some great plexi and sequin embroideries, and appliques on accessories that gave the collection a nostalgic whimsy; the black handbag with orange flowers reminded me of those do-it-yourself accessory kits; except resurrected in deluxe fabric form fit only for pint-sized princesses and pre-debutante socialites...

    As per usual, a slew of what are sure to be oft-spotted street style favorites from Madame Miuccia. It will be interesting to see the new proportions of the long tops over pants. I am of the opinion that that pink number in the third down would be particularly agreeable over some cropped chinos and platform sandals. We shall see. Most importantly however, is whether the beauty recommendations will be adopted; orange statement eyebrows and bipolar hair treatments anyone?
