I LOVE this collection.

The concept is very clear, I like how PRADA uses femininity for men, I'm sick and tired of that D&G and Dquared2 type of men, all muscular and pretentious. I think it's time for men clothing to transform in something more versatile, new lines and cuts, it's 2008 and PRADA knows it, PRADA is a trend maker not a follower.

I disagree.

This is so irrelevant. it's not about being a woman anymore, that is boring and died when Hedi left. It's all about HYPER masculinity, RAW sex appeal.

I semi-disagree. I find both "looks" quite intriguing, but I think I do prefer the more indie rocker, skinny jeans, cardigan as low as the back of your knee look for the street and definitely the more tailored and old-fashioned look for events and classy occasions

There are shirt dresses for men :-)) You just have to wear three of them.
I actually love the orange rubber like jkts. If she could make them from transparent leather - do you remember CCP gloves? But rubber is kind of a nice substitute:-P

baaaad collection. even though she's the "TREND MAKER", but this collection is to overrated for men to use this kind of clothes.

This is pretty blah and not nearly as daring (for better or worse) as the last few seasons. It's commercial to the extreme and when most of these pieces make it to the shops no one will remember the faux-femininity of this show. Most of those ideas are only part of the styling (straps, rolled sleeves).

After a Pradaish Jill collection, it's interesting to see Miuccia leaning heavily on the classic Jil Sander blue before the black colorway.

I apologize for including links rather than photos, but I need to keep this post within the bounds of the re-posting rules.

This is what the collection will look like in shops. Mediocre denim and decent knits. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...uado/PRD17.jpg

The coats and jackets that are shown spread wide will be an easy sell too. Just unfasten that little strap (you can even see the little spot where you'd do it) and you can wear them like any other nice, but uneventful Prada coat. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...quado/PRD1.jpg

I like this shirt, but it's not as interesting as those degrade (sp?) pieces from the furry collection. It looks like the suit jacket is too small though. I can't imagine him squeezing the buttons closed. That means it won't be a very slim fit IRL. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...uado/PRD14.jpg

These'll be longer in the shops and everyone will wear it with a shirt underneath, so it'll be just another boat neck sweater. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...uado/PRD11.jpg

Aside from the silicon coats (which probably won't make it outside of editorials), this coat is the only somewhat daring idea presented. It's sort of like her take on volume, but the cropped cut kills any chance of this being a cool cocoon shape.

The pants throughout the collection are unremarkable, but it's especially obvious in this shot.
