Milan Spring 2013: Prada
FirstView View Gallery
Origami folds, a stark palette of black, white, and red, and a field's worth of mega-sized floral appliques amounted to the Spring '13 lens through which a Miuccia classic was interpreted. Squarish and stiff satin LBDs, brief-hemmed jackets, and monochromatic separates were a canvas for framed blooms, done in intricately-worked embellished forms on some pieces, and with a softer, spraypaint-esque touch on others. Bloomers and bermudas provided quirky underpinnings on a handful of looks, and that softly cocooned car coat sans collar which has become one (of many) Prada hallmarks got the closely-sheared furry treatment. In the visage department, lips got lacquered a classic rouge, and hair went the mussed, slightly shaggy route. Overall, it's decidedly more somber than the gamut of garb that's solidified Miuccia as an eccentric icon, sure. But one glance at those curious bow-laden booties, sagging and scrunched around the ankles, with straps tucked between the toes that vaguely resemble flip flops, and it's clear: the endearingly weird is alive and well at chez Prada.
