In spite of the fabrics and prints all being so played down, the silouhettes were quite sexy. There's an emphasis on the bosom in all of the dresses with the ruffles, the wool sweater/skirt sets are all synched at the waiste, and let us not forget those strategically placed darts. Its all quite ironically erotic. But its done in such a subtle, around-the-corner- and-through-the-backdoor kind of way. Its almost like a well covered joke, Here is this demure, lady-like, covered up collection, but there are all these details, ie. the placement of the ruffles, the aptly placed darts; Your eye see's one thing at first glance, but your mind still see's something quite sexy, even if you don't realize it right away.
Its because Miuccia Prada is a genius. Oh, I'm doing it again. Back to the review. With Prada, the sex appeal is never obvious, but always deliberate. Her collections are often a hard pill to swallow at first, but like a month later you're looking at the collection on style.com for the 5th time, going, Oohhh yeaaahhh, wooooow... those dresses made of chandelier crystals are amazing! Meanwhile Miuccias already moved on to the next trend she's decided to create and having a quiet chuckle to herself. She's just in her own lane, up the street and around the corner. She is an inventor. Ugh, ok sorry, Im stopping now.
P.S. I do realize this show happened like 3 days ago. I just didn't want to go on without paying my respects. Loooooove you Miuccia.
