“Prada goes geisha”. That’s the mantra for Miuccia Prada Summer 2013 collection.
Prada show at Milan Fashion Week was a breath of fresh air. Skinny duchess satin skirts combined with origami folded tops or kimono wraps. Origami dresses with naif cherry blossom flowers as only print. Superb bags with same symbolic flower appliquéd, very likely to be the next it-bags .
Let´s look down and you will discover Prada proposal for shoes : Geisha block platforms and sock booties in gold or pale pink with ribbon thong.
Furs in summertime. “Again a symbol of impossibilities – so much is forbidden now. I feel, all of us maybe feel, that we have to have a certain behaviour now, that you can’t be decadent,” said Miuccia.
Pure colours through all collection. Black, white, pastel pink mixed with bright red. “I thought the use of the monochrome for summer was really fresh” said Vogue editor Emily Sheffield. Exquisite cyber geishas with delicate poppy reminiscence.
“You never know what you’re going to get and that’s what makes it so exciting. This as a response to last season was so pure, the shapes especially. It was very her and reminiscent of her mid-Nineties collections” said Francesca Burns,fashion editor at British Vogue.
Prada at its best.
