Milan Fashion Week A/W 2011: Prada
Sexy school girls is what Miuccia Prada intended in her "women should look...more innocent" collection, as oppose to the other way round. "Rather than making girls look like women," Prada opted to bring a little childish style to the grown-up women's wardrobe.
Using luxe fabrics such as snakeskin and fur (both real and fake) the designer traipsed out a series of drop-waist block-coloured ensembles with thick bold belts and knee-high socks. Dresses were buttoned up to one side with big silver buttons and pleated in the skirt, they were teamed with matching gloves and clutch purses tucked under one arm.
Inspired by the '20s ad '60s, Prada incorporated fur trims to coats and dresses in blush and olive green. Sci-fi influences were evident in the coloured transparent disc garments, from which the light bounced and played. Other unique items were the long leather and python Mary-Jane boots which were a sight in themselves. Check out the show in the video above.
