Italian Fashion Women's Spring

Sunday, 7 August 2011

Prada, Versace, Gucci, Armani, Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana

Bold and Baroque at Prada
Miuccia Prada was all about big statements this season including blocks and wide stripes of bright colors like orange, blue and green. In the Prada Spring 2011 RTW collection there were echoes of everything from hospital scrubs to Jazz age glamour and these influences combined to create a collection that was at times eccentric and at other times minimal. Aside from the abundant stripes, which ranged from the nautical to the penitentiary, Prada also used whimsical prints featuring bananas (which were echoed in Ms. Prada's own dangly yellow earrings) to monkeys. Twenties-era drop-waist sheaths competed for runway space with boxy suits and fitted skirts that flared at the knee, all of which were accompanied by wonderful accessories from wide hats to structured bags in similar bright hues. If Prada's "minimal baroque" look is anything to go by then this spring bright and bold is going to be where it's at.
