The Prada Fall 2011 Runway Show in Milan has come and gone and has left me in love with some of the looks for fall. Clean but edgy, sophisticated and bold are a few words I’d use to describe the collection which included very ladylike pieces. The dresses were very form fitting and models looked like they stepped right off the set of Mad Men. The tailored look of this dress is very polished and definitely a must have in every woman’s closet.
At her pre-show press conference on Thursday, Prada says the intent behind her engaging school-girlish collection was to make “glamorous and sexy materials, more innocent and fresh.” “The collection is not exactly childlike, but more ingénue….It’s fun, with a cartoon effect,” she said. “Women should look…more innocent, rather than making girls look like women.”
The Veda Imperial Jacket would be a great piece to pair with the dresses above. Not just yoru ordinary “little black dress,” I love the cap sleeve on these dresses because it embodies exactly what Prada was aiming for: “more innocent” and “fresh”.
