Hi my name is Miuccia Prada and my vision and creativity does not go deep enough to envision my clothes on another skin tone but what the hell, i'm gonna throw in one or two black girls in there so I don't get too much flack for it but the Asians can absolutely forget it!! However I will offer my IPO in that region because they spend substantial amounts on luxury goods. hmmm what to do oh what to do...That's it! I'm going to do something with hot rods because in the movies the pretty blonde girl from small town USA is always in her tight jeaned boyfriend's hot rod. Yes, that's the type of thing the Americans will go for! They'll absolutely love it and so they will use it in their magazines and if they use it then the Europeans will follow for sure!... Now once it becomes mainstream, the Asians will definitely follow because then it will be the cool thing to have, but as for letting one of them walk in my show... I can't, I just can't! My name is Miuccia Prada and I can do what I want because, well, it's just like I said, My name is Miuccia PRADA!

So that was my two cents about this collection. I'm completely bored and over it!

sorry but this makes no sense. hot rods are heavily referenced in the shoes and in the prints, but the clothes are pretty much as prada as you can get, everything is well tailored, simple, toned down, but quirky and modern aswell. it's not like you look at this collection and go 'oh this is what an extra in Pleasantville would've worn'.

imagine how embarrassing it will be for fashionistas when their toddler kids ask them in the future "ma, why're you wearing our bedroom curtains?"

EDIT: Ok, so I kind of like it. haha!

I love the pleated skirts

I am a sheep for miuccia, always! I gotta get that pleated car printed skirt! I love her prints: I liked the monkeys last spring, the beach before that, and the snakeskin print the spring before too!

Well, I'm not crazy for this collection. The references are quite funny but the clothes don't look as good as the accessories. The last part is quite good, though.
It might look better in the magazines.

immediately think of the mj car bags a few seasons ago, or dior trailortrash from back a while ago, the styling felt like dior..i like the shoes a lot as well, however the clothes fall a bit short to me - i wanted something more at the end perhaps some pageant looks or something.

People obviously only love this because it's Prada. If some lesser known designer had done this I doubt anyone would even throw a second look at this.

After last season's magnificent show Miuccia gives us....hot rods? After a fantastic fall collection with intricate layering, immense detail and true innovation she gives us Hot Rods? Really? I see nothing but silliness here. Yes Miuccia is unconventional and everyone knows she's the epitome of quirky offbeat style, but this collection comes off as dippy more than inventive. Miuccia RARELY crosses that line, but she has here, which kinda makes it look like Miuccia just couldn't be bothered.

Come on! These shoes are just silly. I mean, really. Maybe it's because I have a 10 year old son who actually PLAYS WITH hot wheels and matchbox cars; maybe it's because I've therefore had to sit through enough talking car/truck/tractor movies to turn to slasher films as respite. But!! No matter what it is, I cannot abide by the wearing and donning of such ridiculous accessories. The fruits were bad enough. Nor will I ever wear car print shirts or tacky flame-emblazoned skirts. I don't care if the label says "PRADA."

However, all that having being said, I DO love how she's returned, here, to the roots of her quirky vintage-inspired *abstract/graphic* prints of the 90s version of Prada. It's a throwback to what I really used to love about her work. And it's what made her brand truly famous. That is when everyone went around muttering "Prada, prada, prada" because she took such care in her fabric choices. It may've been somewhat kitschy, but I think it was more nostalgic than anything, and it really riffed on the vintage shopping craze that rose up in the late 80s, early 90s.

I don't feel the same vibe from this collection overall (although there are sparks - no pun intended); instead, all the car references feel tacky to me. But that's just my review. Seemingly many people here love it.

I would like to ask a question of those women who think they like this collection-

Why do you want to adopt the look, wear the scent, carry the bag, of a 1950's middle American housewife?

In terms of the Prada corporation's 'bet' on 'sweetness' - is sweetness what you really want to feel and convey to the world? Is that what women should now be - sweet?

It's probably not necessary to consider feminism directly but perhaps think of your own mothers or grandmothers, women socialised in the 1950's, and how you try to help them overcome problems caused by deferrence, mundanity, piousness, emptiness, guilt, etc?

Always remembering that other sartorial choices are available, are we really to be nostalgic for a return to such a world?

I think presently that this corporate 'bet' should be seen as deeply offensive. That the correct response should in fact be anger. But it seems that most of you will hand over your money at the counter - dutifully, sweetly.

I'm not being facetious. I ask sincerely. I'm genuinely interested. I can see there could be several possible answers but I'd like to not second guess but hear people's thoughts...
