47 covers, 47!
I wasn't too in love with this collection back in September when it debuted on the runway. But after seeing the collection in person, touching the fabric and actually absorbing the details and all the carefully planned seams, this collection suddenly became genius, just like all other Prada collections. This is far from being Miuccia's best collection, nor is it the worst, but there is a certain charm in there that previous collections did not have. The awkward, almost ridiculous monkey and banana prints, or the strange color combinations that seem to work so well on the Jil Sander runway, but not so well when on Prada, all seem to fall in place after a while. This is the kind of collection that takes a while to sink into your heart and slowly eat it away. The clothes look amazing in print and in person. And only Prada could make a fur stole an it-item for spring/summer. Picked up a fantasy lookbook at the Prada on Rodeo Drive. Loved the images and the juxtaposition of the collection.
Now, looking back at the complete runway show, it seemed more perfect than ever, from the models' make up, to the accesories, to the location, and the clothes. Everything seem to just be perfectly where they're supposed to be, with nothing out of place. Prada made awkward and peculiar cool again.
