Chic Vroom! Vroom! by PRADA for Spring/Summer 2012.

Honestly, this was a PRADA collection that was amazingly chic and dazzling by Miuccia Prada. There were so many wonderful options to pick from to look and feel chic. This collection was girly and feminine and sexy all rolled in one. Prada titled the show "Women and Car Engines" and said she saw "an excuse to talk about femininity and what it means today. Women can be feminine, even sweet - a word which today in fashion is almost taboo. It's not clear why."

Well, all I can say is that this collection shows that it is OK to be, look and feel  feminine and sweet and that no apologies need to be expressed for that. These clothes were exquisite: coats with round shoulders and pleated backs, loosely fitted bandeau tops worn over plisse skirts; fluid waist-conscious dresses with exhaust flame print borders. I loved the pin-up swimsuits that look like they do not go into the water and the twin set that had a new take in floaty, back pleated maroon coat and blouse worn with a pleated blue skirt. The fabrics were lovely in soft pastels and floral guiperes that were quite bold and beautiful. Leather played a role in giving some grit and some structure.
The accessories came in bags with car imagery and shoes that were freckled with adrenaline-inducing flames. "Cheerful and witty" is what Prada said. I think it is downright clever and darling.
No mistake that PRADA continues to drive on down the runway to enchant the fashion world and clients.
