Exactly.

These shoes are SO wrong. Seriously, what was Miuccia thinking?

Anyway, I like just few (very few) pieces in this collection. S/S 2012 was way better.

^Im truly hoping Pucci will bring us pornographic high slit monstrosities in aqua silk and lace to cleanse my palette after this cerebral mess. Dont get me wrong I love Miucca and I love all your temple/death-connotations, but guys its only fashion and I need a shot of deliciously trashy high end bikini-dresses to counterbalance this dark and autumny S/S 13 Im seeing everywhere..

I find myself in the same place everytime I see a Prada collection. Ugly on the runway and terribly seductive in real people on the street. And that is the brilliance of her work! Is not instance seduction. They grows on you and leave an impression! A long lasting one!

I agree with Mathewthew, this doesn't feel luxurious in any way whatsoever. Quite the opposite actually, it feels like a fashion students nightmare come to life. Those floral appliques and motifs, contrary to the opinion of one critic who called their use 'powerful', looked absolutely ridiculous. I would be humiliated to wear something as stupid as that on my dress. Miuccia might as well have put slogans on the dresses saying "fashion victim".

This is the emperors new clothes as its finest. Every single piece in the collection is hideous and no doubt those Prada-Fashion-Victims will be obsessing over this and claiming the rest of us "dont understand fashion" *rolls eyes*

For me the most entertaining part is reading all the reviews and how all the editors theorise all this sh*t. Referencing Japanese culture, Japanese architecture, the modernity of clothes. I'm sorry but its laughable. Kudos to them for going above and beyond to find new ways to give Prada more legitimacy and relevance. Shame they aren't subtle enough to do it without sounding ridiculously manipulated.

I miss the Prada collections of old, when she wasn't trying to so hard to be visionary and she was making great clothes with an aesthetic twist that was still tasteful, and very Milanese.

Jeez this is vile.......really, really bad and I didn't think this brand could get any worse and then this.
I do not find anything innovative here, just gimmicky. Even the plainer looks....which could barely scrape looking presentable are ruined by the atrocious footwear.
I am at a loss as to what she is trying to pass off as womenswear and I never change my mind about Prada a couple of months later either.....in fact I can tolerate it less after seeing it plastered all over magazine covers like the hideous print suits from Fall/Winter were.
Terrible styling yet again also, which will likely be transferred into the print ads.......so looking forward to their Spr/Sum campaign like a hole in the head.

^^ Manipulated in what sense? Because of money? I've seen people make the points about Japan in publications for whom Prada is not a huge source of ad revenue.

I suppose it's possible that everyone has colluded to obscure the foul nature of this collection and completely invented references without any basis in reality -- BUT that sounds likes a megalomaniacal conspiracy theory.

I'm loving the origami/kimono looks and some of the florals are actually working. Most of the coats are just gorgeous. I'm not a Prada gal by any stretch of the imagination but I'm really feeling this collection for some reason. I haven't liked one of her collections since spring 2011! And yes the footwear is quite heinous.

So far, it seems interesting and intriguing...

EDIT: The shoes are an hybrid between tabi and sandals.
I've not read all the pages yet ...
But when I see Dadaism associated with Prada, I just wanna jump and hit people with books ...
Please check what was Dada, in what context they worked, against what, who they were, what they did ... And then think again of this association Prada and Dada ... There's only rhyme ...

Well she does like atypical beauty and goes against traditional influences of fashion to form her own aesthetic. So in that sense I can see how her work could be compared to that movement and many others of the early 20th century. But I also get exactly where you are coming from.

I can't believe it, this is exactly what I thought! I really felt it had a true Miuccia-feel to it, evoking both F/W 05 and S/S 03 which I loved.

Although I'm not sure about some pieces on this collection, some footwear still remains questionable and I think it's getting too literal at some points, I love the beautiful simplicity of the opening black pieces, the slits & prints and the general feeling of the oriental minimalism.
