the bad news is, those shoes are probably here to stay.
the good news is: awesome tailoring, awesome soundtrack, and i also really loved the flower prints. i adore how prada is always so coherent and harmonious as a whole, there's not one single element that doesn't fit. except for, well, the shoes, which is quite an important element i'll have to admit.

It reminded me a bit of the early-2000 collections, very girly and clean but extremely provocative. The Japonese influence was quite a surprise, it went from sexy geisha to Harajuku school girl. I loved the folding and draping of some of the pieces, like those coats almost falling off the shoulders and the skirts. I even liked the furs, they didn't look heavy for spring, the flower appliqué was really pretty. The clean and minimal feeling is really the strong message for me.

As for the shoes, well... this all I can say :

That was my absolute favorite look.

I quite liked some of the looks in the first half, especially the green coat, but some of the flower prints lookd like Comme des Garcon's. The collection improved big time by the second half. The colors were delicious and so were the silhouettes with the exaggerated waist. And call me crazy but I like the embellished platforms.

It's not really as bad as people are saying. I didnd't really enjoy the beginningbut it all went smoothly from look 11 onward. I really love the mini skirt with the black appliqué flower, and the following coat. The flower square print collars are also really good. And the kimono tops are probably my favorites. I think we can all agree those shoes needs to be burned, though. Yikes. I think the only reasonable ones are the ribboned sandals with socks (or is it an enitre piece?), otherwise, it's all one big oy vey.

Even British Vogue believes so

In fact there was only one place those blooms didn't get a look in and that was the shoes - and that's because when it comes to the shoes, Prada likes to propose a whole new challenge for them of their own. Geisha block platforms anyone? Or perhaps some golden sock booties complete with ribbon thong detailing? It was that Prada mind game at work again - from anyone else and you'd be likely to think twice, but not with these, Prada style.

I really cannot understand why there is so much hate. I absolutely loved this collection especially the shoes (yes I said it ). The idea behind the collection was very basic but I really admire the translation and execution. This was a very unexpected, weird, bold and interesting collection. All the things one would expect from Prada; quirky elegance at its best!

Certainly bold. Interesting or innovative? That's up for discussion...

i think its a magnificent collection that presents composure, sultry elegance of asian cultures, strict sharp cuts... all gift wrapped with wack job prada tabis. the flat leather ones i quite like.

the prints on the smooth silk seem to float.

This is like those collections that you hate at first but then you realize that it wasnt that bad and you start seeing every beautiful detail it has (at least for me). I loved it, and i liked the socks and the shoes because they stand out and they have very interesting thing to look at, i dont know how to say it but i love the way it completes the whole look. It isn't my favorite collection from Prada but i still love it.
