Prada For The Real Woman

Miuccia Prada is one of those designers who, if you know anything about fashion, is impossible to ignore. Love her, hate her, you must admit: she is a true one-of-a-kind- visionary. To the eye, her designs change drastically from season to season, but her clothes always empower women and provoke thought.
This season, Miuccia celebrated the woman’s body with dresses and coats that looked best on a curvy body. The clothes complimented a womanly figure with high waists, full skirts and bra-underpinnings. One thing that I love about Miuccia is that she is never afraid to stay attached to one aesthetic for too long. One season we see pre-teen elfin waifs parade down the runway, and the next we see real women like Doutzen Kroes, Lara Stone, Alessandra Ambrosio, Catherine McNeil and Miranda Kerr.
The collection was much more wearable compared to others, but remained interesting with funky, through sophisticated prints, futuristic fabrics and classic Prada shapes. Much of the collection was a revisit to how she designed clothes in the nineties. I loved the collection as a whole, especially the balance between fantasy and wearability. What did you think of the collection? Leave your thoughts after the jump!
