Season's Round Up # 38: PRADA SPRING-SUMMER 2013
This has got to be THE BEST SS2013 Women’s RTW show I have seen thus far. The absolute best! Genius!! I guess Miuccia was reserving her creative genius for the women’s line as this was out of this world compared to the men’s line we saw a few month’s back.
Prada’sSS2013 show was in itself modern, unique and oh so cool and covetable. The pieces, seemingly inspired by Japan, exuded a modern take on the geisha. You’ll find pieces in muted colors, embellished with huge, decadent and bold floral prints – bringing forward a modern take on the Japanese kimono. Each piece makes a statement, whether via a sprinkling of spray-painted or stencilled florals or with a flash of red or maybe a blush of pink and even a splurge of white painted in a black canvas. The cuts were also of note, where we see boxy silk jackets, stiff skirts and of course the off-shoulder wraps, oh the wraps! I would love to be in Japan wearing any one of these pieces. Oh and did you notice the accessories - the small clutches or the eye-catching flats and commandeering platforms? Sheer genius. Absolute fabulosity. Magnificence at it’s best. Obviously, I’m enamoured and in love! I could only wish that the men’s collection she showcased a few months back brought to life the same level of aesthetic feel that will command a cult following for sure. Can’t wait to see the pieces myself – who knows, maybe I’ll find a way to don one piece from the collection. After all, fashion is a statement, and any one of these will definitely make one.
