Milan Fashion Week: Prada S/S 2009
While others tend to be focussing on ruffles and pleats, it was crinkles all the way at the Prada show. As expected, Miuccia Prada did her own thing, offering a light and casual collection, but sadly for most of us, not very wearable. Flesh-baring seemed all the rage as exposed bras sat on top of low-slung crumpled skirts. Snake and fish prints weaved up wrinkled shift dresses, and sheer sweaters were teamed with thigh-flashing uneven skirts. Models wobbled in their skyscraper platform sandals, and two bit the dust taking falls for the cause. As one journo cleverly commented, it was like clothes "stashed away in a trunk". Interesting? Yes. Inspiring? Not quite.
