Prada Spring Summer 2012

I always try and avoid reading comments about a show before I review it, but I did see on Twitter that Susie Bubble loved this Prada collection, which meant nothing to me. While I love her blog, I can confidently say that our personal style is very different, so I wasn’t sure to what to expect. The cheap looking boob tubes, varsity jackets, and car mechanic theme were a bit lame (except on the shoes. The shoes were MAJE.) However, the pleated dresses and elegant one piece swimsuits were incredible. So I guess I have mixed feelings about this collection, except of course, for the shoes, which I will feature in my shoes round up in a few days. But they are TO DIE FOR.

I love…

that finally, at look 20, there is an outfit that says Prada chic.

another great swimsuit that you could never actually swim in.

I loathe…

these big coat silhouettes. They are oversized in a bad way.

a yucky mix of prints and colours.

    I agree about every single look here! I’d just add the heinous car print to “I loathe”, but maybe it’s just me because I have always passionately hated cars.

    I love vintage muscle cars, but agree that print is not very nice at all. Alexandra Suhner Isenberg

    I would die for one of those pleated dresses. Personally loved this collection- so feminine, fun and whimsical. I agree with you on the mixed prints though. Blah!
