I haven't like a Prada collection this much in a while. Just gotta get rid of the fur.

I've always wanted to really, genuinely like a Prada collection. For me, I think this is the collection.

The one thing I really liked about this collection, is that I didn't have to look past the clothing to see the references in order to "get it" like I had to do with Fall 2012 and Spring 2013. Also, I'm a sucker for fur.

One of the few Prada collections I can like. The fur was beautiful. I really appreciate how wearable it is.

Very beautiful! I would love to wear each and every coat there is. The shoes are also beautiful. This is the simple Prada I loved. Very chic. It`s not too forced

There's something that's definitely vintage about this collection. Perhaps the cuts and the silhouettes. And i love the fact that they're all so wearable. What an impeccable collection! Great job Miuccia!

Return of the Old school Prada. Elegance, Rich, Classy, chic- this is good.

^^^ I take it because unlike the Prada collections that usually take a few weeks to sink in, this one is instantly likable because of its straightforward prettiness.

Really digging the Visage snippets in the soundtrack. That, along with the retro-80s video vibe of the set design, gives the overall presentation of a very 50s-palette, but by way of the 80s.

There's not much new here in terms of pushing the Prada aesthetic, and I think she's done much much much better in previous collections evoking that particular era's silhouette. I do love the huge draping fur cuffs that resemble a fur stole casually just about to fall of the wearer's arm-- just a beautiful but slightly awkward touch that makes Prada-- Prada (but not on the gingham pieces-- gingham is gross). But most of the looks are more smart styling and spot-on casting-- particularly Maria Carla and Stemm, those two are naturals with the regal but bad girl high brow-arch attitude. And she's blasted previous collections with much more fur than this-- and much better, I might add, so I don't get why the sudden objections all of a sudden by some. Muiccia's never been a anti-fur designer and this is Milan.

I like the last part of the collection; all the fuller-length leather coats and skirts, the slather of sequins and jet-beads, the rich and natural shades of furs that instantly conjure up old Hollywood goddesses Kim Novak, Grace Kelly, Natalie Wood and some girls looking like a wet 'n wild Veronica Lake. The only missing prop to seal the whole femme fatale deal is the cigarette dangling from those crimson lips-- cliche, yes... but why not? The set's already got that "midnight-hour in the ghetto chain-link fence and rearview-window projection", another cliche won't hurt it... ; all the trademarks of a cheesy 80s music video paying tribute to the 50s.

It's a nice enough collection that's quintessentially Prada-- and smoldering sexy Prada at that, but she's done so much better.

I love the coats but dresses are not my cup of tea.
