What do you think of Muccia Prada’s A/W2010 runway show?
I love Prada for many reasons; textural fibers, cashmere dresses, quirky color palates, the accessories, the wovens, the humor! But what I love especially is that Muccia doesn’t succomb to trends. She defines her own agenda, and dips in to reference the past while mixing it seamlessly with the present. I can’t get over the glasses, I hope they’ll be offered as sunglasses, with the bold accentuated eyebrow (RayBan makes some Mommy Dearest glasses which look like Betty Davis eyebrows). I can’t take a person seriously if they are wearing them- but these are amazing.
There is womanliness, curvature, ample busts and hips due to layers of ruffles on chests and sharp turns around the hips. I sense Hitchcock heroines, especially Grace Kelly in pointy glasses and hair brushed back in a headband. I liked seeing Victoria’s Secret models Doutzen Kroes (#1), Lara Stone (#4) and Catherine McNeil wearing this collection- lends a sense of realism to fashion. Would I wear every look from the show? Not necessarily, but I am continually inspired by Prada’s sense of conviction, her use of color and her “lightness of being” approach to design.
