in pursuit of sweetness

Jeez louise, it happened again: Miuccia Prada
took a new turn never failing to astonish all of us!
Her flawless, dropped-waist fall/winter collection
last February left me spellbound (here) while I guess
I'd need more time to grasp her humorous s/s 2012
unveiled yesterday at Milano fashion week.

The well-thought-of designer shows a great sense
of humor in spite of our troubled days (or maybe 
by reason of) introducing a collection that denies
aggressive, outspoken femininity to, as she says,
”rediscover sweetness” and sweet sensuality.

I must admit I don't like the coat shapes at all,
they seem to be punitive (fabrics are gorgeous,
though) and to be frank the flamelike motifs
and the cartoon cars printed on bold colored
leather skirts and handbags made me
dumbfounded at a very first glance.

Yet Prada's reign could not be blemished by
controversy: the retro-looking, highly embellished
bathing suits, her decorated jackets, embroidered
patterns and accessories are once again a step
ahead of the rest of the world: eyeglasses with
winged frames and killing shoes mimicking Hermes'
winged shoes or, strangely enough, the 50's 
Cadillac Coupe de Ville taillamps are the
waggish riposte to my doubts.

  1. Dearest Elisabetta,

    Wow, I do love the necklace and bracelet with the roses... not the shoes though! The hour glass figure design is special too.
    Love to you and see my blog for tomorrow about Miele Catwalk Fever.
