prada s/s 2012

Retro-glam is alive and well in Miuccia Prada's world of "Sweetness", as she succinctly described her 1950's-inspired collection for spring 2012. Models evoking images of Sandra Dee in Grease wore accordion-pleated skirts in silk chiffon and leather with flirty crochet and lace collarless jackets. Automobile prints appeared on everything from bandeau tops to skirts to dresses. One such dress (my favorite, above left) featured a flame print often adorned on tail-finned automobiles of the era. The latter detail was even incorporated onto sandals, some even with bold yet playful torpedo tail lights.
