Miuccia Prada‘s Fall 2010 womenswear collection at Milan Fashion Week embodied the demure spirit of late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. It was all done by statuesque models done with artful sheaths and trenches and chunky cable knit sweater skit sets with stacked pumps. Large buns with matching brunette and blonde woven headbands rounded out geek-chic.
Prada Fall 2010 collection is truly feminine, classic and sexy, and it’s not about baring all, but covering it up in a retro style. Clothes themselves were a little deliberate, and quietly humorous, compliment to the womanly. If it’s possession of breasts that’s been bothering model-casting agents for past few years, this collection was a nightmare scenario for them. The ample bust was unavoidable focal point of silhouette, picked out in balconies of lace ruffles and upstanding pointy-bra formations on raised-waist wide-skirted dresses and coats.
Whole collection was conservative, almost funereal, displaying designer’s premise of endlessly chic, subverted classics. Chunky sweaters, belted over skirts, cut A-line skirts in patent leather, and a gorgeous swingy red-and-black coat were among top looks. Such sturdy, librarian-chic daywear stood in striking contrast to more glamorous evening pieces, including a black wool coat and shift, embroidered with slick jet beads down the front.
Then there were ruffled bosoms of fit-and-flare dresses bursting with eyelet frills, some were alternating black & white, others trimmed in bright blue. It was demure yet seductive, an idea Prada hammered home by casting a few Victoria’s Secret Angels, such as Doutzen Kroes, the buff bombshell, here turned out in a full-skirted sleeveless dress daintily cinched at waist.
Miuccia Prada’s Fall 2010 collection is truly wearable representing the retro style in a modern vibe!!
