My roommate is first introduced to the fashion world by me...yesterday. When I showed her the live streaming of the Prada show before lunch. =]
Prada isn't always my favorite brand (that last resort collection was amazing though). But their staple is to make you feeling like a emperor with the very Italian designs and plexi embellishment. Apparently this is like a review of the greatest Prada hits straight from their archive. The details are very fascinating and I thoroughly enjoyed all the pajama suits with gorgeous patterns. And this collection has really grown on me since seeing the show yesterday live. The carpet and lights hanging on the runway are really cool as well.
Moschino is a parade of all sorts of things like military inspired hats and jackets, ski outfits (like this first one), and all the cheerleader-short skirts. I especially like the color-blocking pants and that last hot pink funky dress full of ruffles. The trenches look great as well, but falls a little bit flat on a runway.
Etro is another brand that I usually don't "pay attention" to. The prints and styles are pretty amazing even though, to me, it seems that they target an older crowd. I'm quite picky about prints and these aren't my cup of tea. But nevertheless, all the looks are quite retro and fabulous. And once again, velvet and sheerness are employed. It looks like I will need some velvet for next fall.
Just Cavalli once again showcases Roberto Cavalli's ability to make animal prints really appealing. All the designs are full of youth and, as usual, have the rocker-chic feel. They are never too emo though, because of all the amazing layering. Love them as always! Can't wait to see the Cavalli main line. :) OH! Forgot to say...I love the hair!
Luisa Beccaria...I didn't know where to put her in the last post. Even though it still doesn't quite fit here..I'm just gonna stick it here. There are a few darker designs in the show but I liked these pastel ones better. Don't get me wrong, I love this collection! But it does remind me a lot of Valentino even though I know that Luisa always has these super feminine stuff. They are amazing on their own, if you are not picky about following previous runway trends from the spring. Love that velvet coat though! So much warmth while looking effortless and light.
