Sorry about lack of posts, it is fashion 'week' (more like month) after all, and I get too distracted from my homework by online fashion shows and cookies. I did, however, want to start reviewing shows with one of my favorites in Milan, Prada Fall 2010. Miuccia Prada, head designer of the label, said she was revisiting and re-modernizing what made her famous in the 90's. But this collection seemed more an exploration of what's real to her customer, their womanhood. Voluptuous models mixed with other zomby teen models to give the show a little extra oomph. The thread of womanhood really came through the clothes by the bust. There was no way to ignore it. Ruffles primped the bustline and tight ribbing lifted like a built in bra. Fabrics were a flavorful variety between the glazed alpaca, leather, ruffles and odd embroidery, the collection practically spoke pure 90's Prada. Heavier models strutted their stuff and made it work, while the grasping bust effect of the clothing made skinny teens look more womanly and mature. Which was exactly the point. Miuccia always brings something new to the fashion world, and this season was no exception. These pieces will take part in countless editorials, as well as fly off shelves in Prada stores. All for one reason, real women rule.
Detail Overload because the accessories are too fabulous.
