Some quotations on the collection from Miuccia ...

Quote:
Prada said she'd wanted to take "sequins, fur and cocktail dresses and make them look fresh and innocent". In that case, mission accomplished.
Quote:
"I wanted to make sexy materials look different," Ms Prada explained. "I always have this obsession about materials, like sequins, and fur and python, and with how women feel about the materials clothes are made from. And, this time, I wanted to turn things around, to have not girls dressing like a lady, but women dressing like something more innocent."
Quote:
The idea behind her stunning Prada collection, the designer said backstage after the show, was "not a girl dressed like a lady, but a lady rediscovering her innocence"

Love at first site for this collection.

A/W 2011 almost plays out like an updated "best of" for Prada was my impression: I see updated versions of Prada's pass collection as far back as A/W 94, with those delicate 40s-style dresses that were then inspired by the film "Schindler's List". The 40s and 60s silhouette have always been a strong Prada staple.

As for the Balenciaga reference, I can see why some would instantly refer to Ghesquiere's influence with the drop shoulders and equestrian caps, but I think Miuccia went farther back for those designs in keeping with the retro-futuristic 60s: Pierre Cardin and Andre Courreges.

It's very 60s to my eye. I was just looking at a 1965 edition of Vogue the other day, and this definitely rang some bells. The big belts hitting right at the hips won't be flattering on everyone, however, especially in this heavier fabrication. I am not so keen on the shag-rug / fun-fur sweater coats but I like those plastic scale tops, skirts and dresses; those look really fun and modern.

While a lot of collections have gone either long & flowy or tight & sophisticated where skirts and dresses are concerend, Miuccia has gone short & swingy. Here, then, she offers an alternative, which is always good in fashion.

So my first glance at this season collection, I said to myself what is this? Then I take the time to watch the video and look at the collection and now I really like this collection.

Ok.. I am going to have to be the one to say it. I really do not like this collection.. it felt lazy and uninspiring. It's like ok, you have the usual "ugly just to be ugly clothes" with the different prints and fabrics, the styling did not help anything either. It's very reminiscent of the shapes of the 60's but it's.. boring.

Well, this is pretty much 1964-1966. From the shapes, big buttons right to those unbelievably gorgeous stringy furs.

In fact, a lot of it looks better than the 60s to me. Nicer materials for one thing.

I'm just glad that I didnt see the horrid lurex sweaters from the menswear collection! This is much much better. I'm so loving the plastic fish scales!
