At Prada, Milano

Comments on "At Prada, Milano"


Blogger Kathy Lee said ... (7:08 PM) : 

I love it! Its a full colour palette from Ms Prada as well as from Ms Gucci. I am going into Spring now: Australia. Going to fully adopt the bright colours immediately :)

<3 your photos, keep it up. Inspires me.


Anonymous Milk Two Sugars said ... (7:09 PM) : 

I LOVE the shoes and the vibrant colours, this collection is very innovative compared to what I've recently seen on the catwalk :)


Blogger Maggie Westhead said ... (7:12 PM) : 

I just adore that banana shirt


Blogger Michelle Bobb-Parris said ... (7:14 PM) : 

For me, the dress in picture no.5 is my favourite, but I wasn't quite sure what to make of the shapes and prints on some of the pieces. It will be interesting to see how the collection develops in print campaigns and editorials.



Blogger Belle de Ville said ... (7:17 PM) : 

Not good. Really not good.


Blogger Yvette said ... (7:20 PM) : 

Love this show. Most especially the bright color combos and the lace-up tri-layer platform shoes.


Blogger SarahPeslar said ... (7:20 PM) : 

I'm blown away by extravagant warm and cool colors!


Blogger niamh said ... (7:20 PM) : 

these pictures are great but overall Prada has left me feeling disappointed. I dont see anything fresh here and realistically cant see many people wearing this collection. im hoping for better things to come over the next few days

The colours are sensational..
It's so much better comparing last year's collection.
Love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 PM) : 

Love the colors and stripes; love the more fitted-cut dresses. Not so keen on the looser-fitting silhouettes. M. Prada is a consummate designer. Love the shoes. I also noticed that Alexander McQueen's influence on the prints, not just for this show, but for other shows during fashion week world-wide is very palpable. Long live McQueen and Prada!

I know fashion is all about looking forward, but I much preferred last springs. It simply blew me away. This however isn't as good.


Blogger Petey said ... (7:59 PM) : 

Love seeing the final runway - a walking rainbow. But some of those silhouttes are just not flattering. I agree with a post above - how will this collection work in real life? Some pretty dresses and shoes though. That first outfit looked like something from the movie "Brazil!"

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:15 PM) : 

the colors make me nostalgic for latin america. the mary janes are so feminine and flirty - a grand departure from the dark and aggressive platform/stilletto

Too many stripes.

These prints are really original and inspiring.I just got tickets for an amazing fashion forum in NY on Oct 8th! I thought I should share because I believe it could help people like me trying to meet fashion professionals and learn about the newest trends in our industry! ♥

Banana shirt :D Immediately remembered banana shoes and a clutch from your recent picture. Nice, makes me smile :) Love the dress from the 2nd photo.

that's all.

the shoes in the first pic are just wierd, i like some of the striped outfits, but the rest of it is a little too strange for me :)

wooooow a lot of color! *w*


Anonymous La Goffa said ... (12:51 AM) : 

hm. fun patterns and, nice, sort of garish use of color, but I see the the shape of the banana shirt enough on older, overweight men who bought them in the 90s at Walmart. Why am I seeing them on Prada models?

I think I have a pair of tri-color platform sneakers that I wore in 1997. I was seven. How bout we leave those shoes wrapped in old posters of the Spice Girls, yeah?

Prada never ceases to amaze me!


Blogger green gable said ... (1:02 AM) : 

I love the bright graphic prints! Glad to see they'll be staying current till spring!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:05 AM) : 

I'm surprised by how much I like the colors; I think it's their high level of saturation & combination with lots of black--whatever it is, they look delicious, not garish. Love the shoes in the first photo, too. But those boxy Hawaiian shirts are a bad, bad idea. I love oversized, but these, like the Saunders shirts, look oddly stiff and awkward. Maybe paired with narrow jeans after a few dozen washes and dryings...


Blogger melou said ... (1:08 AM) : 

bounty of colors and stripes, what more do you need...


Blogger said ... (1:18 AM) : 

What wonderful use of color. Let's hope this one hits the streets. The all back look is due for a breather, I think.


Anonymous Isa said ... (1:20 AM) : 

The first one is gorgeous except the shoes !!


Blogger five stones said ... (1:21 AM) : 

very striking.

love the weird platform sneakers.


Blogger Star said ... (1:25 AM) : 

Pretty darn awful, except for the second to the last photo (striped slim-fitting spaghetti strap sheath with flounce). It's Too Much. Interesting batch of comments, this time. Most are very pro, or very con.
P.S., If you are in Milan, as I imagine you are, then you posted this at 1:30 A.M. local time; mercy me, what dedication!

It is very Prada..and outrageous!


Blogger Fourth Daughter said ... (3:31 AM) : 

Wow, this is the first time I've loved Prada at first sight, it usually takes a little while to grow on me. My friend in Fiji did wonder if Miuccia stole the banana print idea from him, and I have to say I saw similar prints on shirts at a Fijian grocery store just a few hours ago here in Melbourne!!

I wonder what it would be the editors' reaction if any other less known designar had put the same absurdity on the catwalk.
It looks like one of those proyect runaway gone really wrong..

I'm perplexed about this catwalk...


Blogger Liz S said ... (4:24 AM) : 

Great colours and patterns. A calypso feel there.


Blogger Barbara said ... (4:28 AM) : 

Love the colour, and the stripe-and-print combinations remind me of Italian street fashion of the 80s - Enrico Coveri, Fiorucci, Byblos. It's wonderful to see colour - summer is coming to the Southern hemisphere and this is inspiring and fresh. BUT, the girls look particularly hideous and theatrical. Yes yes, I know it's a show, but why do they have to look so ugly? Some of them actually look quite sheepish - no doubt because they know how silly they look. Interesting that the fabrics have been printed in such a way that the back side is white - makes me think that they are all quite crisp and heavy. Unusual, in that this is traditionally the cheap and cheerful way of printing fabric, and not sophisticated at all.


Anonymous proletarian Great Gatsby said ... (4:39 AM) : 

How much colour!The gardens of Monet at Giverny this summer.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:12 AM) : 

I love the colours, like most of the comments above, but I'm really not sure about the boxy shape of the shirts. But perhaps my eye just needs time to adjust--it's funny how some things/clothes/shoes make you go "yuk!" the first time you see them, but twelve months later they're all you want! (Is this the biggest sign of a fashion victim?)

At the moment I love the fitted flouncy dress the most.

Reminds me of the munchkins in the Land of OZ. I would rather some of the big shirts, mated with something snug to the body. But otherwise, it is marvelous. Especially the sheer fun the designer(s) are having with classic meets cartoon. Bravo!

Can't help but wonder what umbrella they would take to the beach.

Anonymous paule said ... (1:43 AM) : 

I agree with Barbara about the white underside of the printed fabric,

"Interesting that the fabrics have been printed in such a way that the back side is white - makes me think that they are all quite crisp and heavy. Unusual, in that this is traditionally the cheap and cheerful way of printing fabric, and not sophisticated at all."

I wish the flounces on the bottoms of the skirts were at least lined in black or a contrasting color..they look like cheap computer-printed stiff fabrics. I do like the digital-esque prints, but too bad they look unfinished...

Like some fellow fashion person once said on a "Miuccia has got such a high taste level, she's up there all by herself."

I wouldn't fully agree to that, as there are so many other designers who do great things, but she knows how to impress and set trends every single season - we'll be seeing many of these clothes in editorials over and over and over again - can't wait!
