I am finally trying to catch up with all the shows..this is the first time in a million years where I haven't been trying to find the first first first pics up like 5 nanoseconds after the show is over and IT FEELS TERRIBLE. Sort of.
Prada is, of course, the exact combination of everything I never knew I wanted all at once.
There are 2 things that Miuccia always does better than almost anyone:
1. So Wrong It's Right-ness. e.g. the cheesy snakeskin print featured in this collection hasn't had this much play since the pleather pants hey day of the late 90s and in anyone else's hands I would barf, but with MP I am like..'yeah ok, I feel you. LET'S TRY IT!'. SHE KNOWS.
2. COLOR Being a genius with a color palette is hard as hell. It seems like it wouldn't be but trust me, 98% of the population sucks at color. Miuccia (and I would say Karl, in his Fendi collex) is next level. Her combinations are retro but future, surprising and exciting. RIGHT?
Um.. HELLO PINK MARY JANE, YOU WILL BE MINE. Also can we talk about a trompe-l'oeil KNEESOCK?! What in the who in the what?!?!?
These designers that show in Italy love a fucking Amelia Earhart swimcap. Marni, Jil Sander, Prada..all with this fucking hats. I love you guys for trying- AIN'T NO ONE GONNA WEAR THESE.
But I will wear a bathmat. I will.
Courreges feel and color theory at it's finest.
I LUH YOU, FASHION
