Prada is full of color for the summer season. With casual and straight lines, warm and bright colors. Prada is illuminating the runway with yellows, oranges and greens. But keeping it classic with the black sliced in. Great looks start simply -hence simple bright colors offer a really refreshing change to the down turn of grays that we were seeing. Surley the economy isn’t getting to Miuccia Prada, as her Resort collection sure does not reflect it. With her sharp contrasts her Summer shows, pretty draped-back dresses in camel color-blocked with pastels; cheeky scarf-print bikini briefs with ties at the hips, worn and neon-bright button-downs; and of course handbags which vouch as great eye candy in the form of little duffel bags in colorful florals that match the models’ ankle-tie sandals. The bow is a recurring motif, appearing at the neckline and elbows of an asymmetrically draped black top, at the hem of narrow underskirts, and at the back of float-y, vaguely 1920’s-ish wallpaper-print dresses. The cumulative effect looks very bright indeed. Call it Prada’s antidote for trying fashion times.
