All the things one would expect from Prada; quirky elegance at its best!
Actually I liked the shoes, too. I'm not really thinking of buying a pair for myself, but I love the idea of it, I love how Miuccia just proposes something totally different, strange and yet in a way beautiful. And as for the clothes, I can see Anna Wintour or Giovanna Battaglia looking great in some of those pieces. And many more, too. I love the combination of the simple, elegant clothes with those strange things on the feet. Common, it's a fashion show, don't take everything so literally!

Horrible. And I'm tired to hear 'what a genious Miuccia is' whatever she does. Sometimes, risk doesn't work, the shoes are awful and unworkable, the prints are tacky, cuts on the clothes are unflattering .. I try to appreciate the collection because I am a fan of the brand but I just can't. Sorry, next!

And everyone thought Crocs were bad....

The clothes were fantastic in my opinion, it felt like they got a lot better in the second half of the collection. Some of the cuts in the end were very beautiful....definetely more geometric than flowy which is usually what Miuccia is all about.

Considering the influences, the shoes look quite interesting... Still horrifing, though.
The last part of the collection was the most convincing to me, and it looked good actually. The rest feels quite Prada to me, which could be good or bad. Overall, I'm not impressed/excited to see those looks in EVERY fashion magazine.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST. That's the only thing that came to my mind when I saw this.

I am.. whelmed.. I think?. It's a girly and cheeky collection with an oriental "touch", but some of the shapes are quite unflattering and the accessories are a hellish nightmare. I'm seriously on the fence. Her latest S/S men's collection was splendid, naturally I was expecting something in that particular direction.

PS. I can't with all the over-the-top fashionistas that are using every single positive superlative out there to describe this collection.

So ugly, but people will eat it up because it's Prada.

Watching now the video footage, it could just be the set and the soundtrack, but there's perhaps a Fifty Shades of Grey vibe?

Not in an anglo-american nor a milanese way but in a Parisien way? Perhaps an army of intelligensa women (artists, writers, philosophers) who are also tantric sex disciples. And these were their uniforms. Or suggestions therefore. Latex looking sockshoes included. Robes. Veiled flowers. Nature. Freedom. East meets West. Ecstasy.

That's my fantasy anyway. And I'm sticking to it

If you're not getting what I'm getting make sure you have the sound up, and your eyes open, when you hit play on the vid @ #57 @ page 4 of the thread

Are these the kind of vibes you get from "Fifty Shades of Grey"? Because if that's so, LMAO.

Not at all. I've taken one vibe (reference) then mashed it with another. As I believe has Miuccia. My mind doesn't stay still. I'm painting. Keep up

Prada Bares Her Soul


Prada, by Miuccia Prada, spring/summer 2013, in Milan.
By SUZY MENKES
Published: September 20, 2012


MILAN — In the most personal and soulful collection she has ever done at Prada , Miuccia Prada opened her womanly heart, using that most female of symbols, the flower, but in a powerful, modern way.

A one-stop destination for Times fashion coverage and the latest from the runways.

Flower heads perked up on the chests of short black dresses, breaking the straight lines of flat kimono-folded fabrics. On the models’ feet might be a more potent symbol of the girly style: flat shoes with shiny silver socks, fastened with a bow. Or the flowers appeared on transparent purses and eye-glass frames.

Slowly, very slowly, the designer worked in color — peach, green or red, usually with a shiny satin surfaces — except when coats were deep-pile fur, with the color of the red flowers running down like bleeding hearts.

“Very sensual, deeply feminine,” Ms. Prada said. “It’s about feelings. There are two opposites — rectangular shapes, with folds, very geometric; with the flower as a symbol, of poetry, sentiment, community — those things that are always struggles in the life of women.”

This overt questioning of self was so emotional that the audience, seated behind the brutal black pillars along the runway, was cheering before a smiling Ms. Prada appeared.

The show clothes were not pretty — more plain or even drab. Although a stole wrapped round the shoulders might reveal bared arms and a bra, or shorts under coats had the familiar Prada frisson of perversity.

The handwork, although difficult to fathom on the catwalk, included what looked like speckles of printed and painted colors.

The show played out to the mournful voice of Megumi Satsu, singing in French in the early 1980s about love and about suicide. The sound, like Prada’s vision, seemed like a hymn to deep feeling and womanly grace.
