Hungry for Prada



Photographs from the colorful fall 2011 Prada ad campaign were released yesterday, shot by Steven Meisel. 
The images give off a luxurious but relaxed vibe and the clothing and accessories are effortlessly chic, which would only be expected from an icon like Miuccia Prada. 

What do we have to look forward to? A collection that challenges symbols of female glamour; clichés such as sequins and the color pink become innocent under Miuccia's masterful hand. Instead of accentuating the feminine figure, the fall collection emphasized a boyish silhouette, reminiscent of the flapper era. Color block patterns evoke Yves Saint Laurent's famous Mondrian dress. The use of a scale-like texture seems to be inspired by mermaids. Overall, the collection was full of the elegance and confidence that Prada is known for.

I will be waiting to see what arrives in Prada stores in the fall. I'm sure no one will be disappointed.
