Prada’s Lady-like Cruise Collection
Saving the best for last, has just published the Prada resort 2012 look book. I've quite enjoyed the collections this time around because it's interesting to see how the best designers translate their fashion-forward vision into commercial, sellable pieces.
Miuccia has one again taken inspiration from the 50's —a lot of high-waisted A-line skirts, twin sets, conservative crew necks. But I can also see a bit of the 60's in the mix of bold colours and the use of soft knits in skirts and tops, which makes a more relaxed and fun look. I loved the classic bags trimmed with ostrich skin dyed in different colours.

Going through the collection I couldn't stop imagining January Jones (as Betty Draper) in half of the looks. The new Mad Men season is being delayed, which is really frustrating, and I can't wait to see what Betty will be wearing now that the plot has moved well into the 60's. Perhaps a bit of Prada wouldn't be out of the question?

I can definitely see why you thought of Betty Draper! This is beautiful. So much better than her f/w RTW in my opinion. I'm loving your blog!
