those photos are amazing. you're so talented! have a great weekend
The footwear is totally incredible. Those multi-toned snakeskin boots are mine next season!
February 25, 2011 at 3:25 pm
Funny, this collection doesn't do anything for me – I don't think the pieces interact well together.
February 25, 2011 at 3:30 pm
It seems there is no stopping Miuccia. I won't even try to have an opinion, because in my experience after a few months every single of her designs have become major trends – and I follow like a little sheep.
February 25, 2011 at 3:32 pm
Prada this fall is stunning. Fashion is fun again <3
February 25, 2011 at 3:33 pm
they just keep getting better and better!

Normally I am a huge detractor of Miuccia's work. Her pretended intellectualism and her fake "i want to make you think"attitude borders the ridicule(chandelier dresses and chiquita banana tunics to say the least). Neverthless with this collection she surprised me in a very pleasant way. Her references to Saint Laurent with the Mondrian dresses are stunningly beautiful.The cut, the shapes and the materials were all used in a modern way but with a vague reference to the past, in a Rabaneish way( the plastic scales dresses are simply gorgeous). I am in love with this collection.Pitty there was no black girls or chinese girls(her main market actually, but here too she was in the "im not doing the obvious" mood) in the casting.

Miuccia looks back with eyes forward
February 25, 2011 at 3:58 pm
Gosh! It's so beautiful, elegant and… artistic! oh, just awesome! I love it!

Oh no. How do you feel about the use of proportion in the styling? Very awkward length of boot used with these looks, in my opinion. Managed to highlight the most unflattering 1/4 of the human leg. Even on these gorgeous women. Some flats or chunky heels would have been much better, no?
February 25, 2011 at 4:18 pm
Loved how they styled lindsey in the shot above, wasn't a huge fan of the plastic circle dresses but overall i was pleased w/ the collection :D
The boots were made for walking…
February 25, 2011 at 4:25 pm
Yes, yes and yes. The shoe/boot/sock is quite different and desireable.
February 25, 2011 at 4:28 pm
HEY! All these catwalk pics are great, but we visit your blog beacuse of the street style, don't loose the focus!
February 25, 2011 at 4:32 pm
this feels like something that were shown in 2008 and before that in the multi culti 90s. mmmm. it is very nice but a little disappointing from such a strong house.
February 25, 2011 at 4:33 pm
The belts are in a really unflattering spot for any woman, resting on the widest part of their bodies drawing your attention there. If you can make a runway model look this wide, this look will be unflattering on the majority of women.
February 25, 2011 at 4:34 pm
The fish scale dresses were my favorite looks!
February 25, 2011 at 4:51 pm
the first two remind me of the fabric Mondo designed in project runway, similar colors and also use of squares
February 25, 2011 at 4:55 pm
I think every look is awful. this entire collection is not wearable, the proportions are way off… I give it a huge thumbs down. very poorly put together. I'm shocked that anyone is a fan.
February 25, 2011 at 5:00 pm
Love how the models are holding the handbags, regardless of whether they're clutches.
Still, your photos are better than the collection. I don't find it especially inspiring.
February 25, 2011 at 5:01 pm
thankyouthankyouthankyou for this!!!!! Prada is always so amazing!!!!
February 25, 2011 at 5:08 pm
Nice boots, but the dresses do not appear to bring out the best in the models. The dresses are sacks.
February 25, 2011 at 5:09 pm
In love with all these shoes, they're stunning.

February 25, 2011 at 5:11 pm
great collection. I love the boots!
I think the Gucci collection is much stronger than Prada this season: The right combinations of sexy:quirky, demure:exposed, wearable:OTT. Miuccia hasn't quite hit that perfect balance, but some great elements in there.
February 25, 2011 at 5:57 pm
I really like the third model.
February 25, 2011 at 6:01 pm
Prada and Miu Miu are my favorites
February 25, 2011 at 6:02 pm

February 25, 2011 at 6:11 pm
I can honnestly say this isn't my favorite Prada collection…I do think the Spring collection is perfect!
February 25, 2011 at 6:13 pm
This isn't my favorite PRADA collection, what a a let down since Spring 11 is so amazing!
Oh Sarah C!
February 25, 2011 at 6:15 pm
The footwear is amazing but the clothes reesmble an ill fitting Santa Claus suit.
February 25, 2011 at 7:15 pm
Great pictures as always but this Prada collection doesn't do anything for me. Nothing is really wearable imo
February 25, 2011 at 7:50 pm
this collection looks uninspired, and frankly, a bit dreary…
February 25, 2011 at 8:04 pm
Not a great collection. I am still waiting for ONE great show this whole fashion season. I think all designers really need to take a vacation for a season.
February 25, 2011 at 9:09 pm
I'm pretty disappointed with Prada this season. The proportions are interesting but it just doesn't work. Maybe with different fabrics it could of worked but such a strong house could of done better.
February 25, 2011 at 9:25 pm
While the images are beautiful, the entire collection looks like an exercise in deliberately poor proportions and unflattering silhouettes. It is loud and dumpy next to the exquisite Gucci collection.
February 25, 2011 at 9:45 pm
beautiful collection.. fall 2011 is looking colorfully refined.. i adore it in Prada. Thank You for all your pictures Scott and keeping us updated with all the beautiful collections down the runway and style streets.
February 25, 2011 at 10:07 pm
beautiful. as always.

February 25, 2011 at 10:32 pm
It was so beautiful……the colors were amazing. And your pics capture them perfectly!!
February 26, 2011 at 12:51 am
it's hard to concentrate to the designs from the marginal faces chosen for models. imho the models should never suppress in any way what they wear.
February 26, 2011 at 1:57 am
This collection looks like it has been created for the purpose for meeting a deadline.
I see very little creativity and inspiration here.
Salut, from Hamilton, New Zealand. :)
February 26, 2011 at 3:16 am
love the shoes!
February 26, 2011 at 3:17 am
I can't say that I was particularly drawn to the styling in this collection, but I do appreciate the house moving forward, when so many other houses have been stuck in the same trends for seasons on end.

just lovely. Great shots!
February 26, 2011 at 5:53 am
Fur again! I think the fur arguement is really about to kick off and I for one am steadfastly against it. I also think some designers use the negative publicity to raise the profile of their collections. Who was it that said "There's only one thing worse than being talked about and that's NOT being talked about."?
February 26, 2011 at 6:17 am
Love the pop of color. And the sight of the models clutching all types of bags uniformly to one side. There's a certain neatness and chic-ness to this collection. But wearability? Not quite; I'd look too wide. Even the models do not look as lithe as they usually do.
February 26, 2011 at 6:26 am
Bravo!! Love the plastic coats!
February 26, 2011 at 7:20 am
Fantastic Miuccia, like always!
February 26, 2011 at 8:01 am
I'm baffled by this collection. It doesn't make any sense to me.
February 26, 2011 at 8:34 am
I enjoyed most of the "mondrian" inspired frocks but was especially taken with two minimal black numbers, one sleeveless somewhere in the middle of the collection.
February 26, 2011 at 8:43 am
its so funny how before until like last year '10 miu miu looked way better and this yr to me miu miu fell down and prada came back to its fame once againlove the collection

February 26, 2011 at 11:20 am
6th pic in that girl is the epitome of cool; I would get nervous trying to talk with her. I get nervous just thinking of talking with her! Something about the color combinations in the preceding pics seems off, except pic 3, as if being inspired by a kilt.
February 26, 2011 at 12:19 pm
Even the models look disappointed. For such a strong house with such a strong Spring collection… what happened? I feel like I've seen this all before, and even if this was a ready-to-wear collection, hardly any modern woman could wear those proportions. It's all very uninspired.
February 26, 2011 at 12:39 pm
Your photos are vibrant, however I agree with the other posters who mentioned frocks' frumpiness. Also, the boots make their legs look larger than they can possibly be…not a fan.
February 26, 2011 at 12:50 pm
Cool fur details!"
February 26, 2011 at 12:58 pm
The 4th and 5th models look to young for these clothes. These are clothes to be worn by women, not young girls. There is nothing sexy or sophisticated about those models, and they cancel out those qualities which are very evident in the collection.
February 26, 2011 at 1:25 pm
I like the idea behind this collection, but I defenitely don't like the shapes. I can't imagine a normal woman body in any of these cuts…
weak nerves and terrible vanity
February 26, 2011 at 1:39 pm
i really like it, it has a 60s twist, especially with the belts and the buttons, the length is modern, although that sounds weird, but the 60s dresses were way shorter. i like this collection, it's different from anything else i've seen so far. well this season i mean.
February 26, 2011 at 2:36 pm
these clothes make even incredibly thin women look large and shapeless. don't like at all
February 26, 2011 at 3:42 pm
A big NO!
February 26, 2011 at 6:26 pm
I LOVED it!! The Mondrian dress is iconic and she rejuvenated it . There was a 60ies vibe but in a very modern approach.10.000 better than her last collection, which was a total FLOP.
February 26, 2011 at 6:39 pm
I have to agree with some of the other comments in that I don't particularly think this was a strong collection from Prada. Although I love playing with body shapes, the cut of the jackets along with the belts would look quite terrible on a woman of average size. However, the shots are lovely as always!
February 26, 2011 at 9:50 pm
Hold on here can we agree the boots do not go with the outfits. If that is there intention so be it but lets no pretend the boots work with the clothes.
February 26, 2011 at 10:05 pm
Despite the always great photography, I'd have to give the clothes a big fat "blech." The models look 20 lbs. heavier than I know they really are. I cringe to think how us "real girls" would look in these frocks.
I do like the boots, though.
February 27, 2011 at 1:15 am
All I see is knees. There's clothes there also?
February 27, 2011 at 3:05 am
First off–kudos to the photographer, excellent work. I don't follow all this stuff as closely as I used to, which perhaps make my opinions noteworthy or maybe just ill-advised, but this collection is just awful to me. Not to mention some of the models look like death warmed over. The ensembles that are original are frumpy, incoherent and unflattering, looks like she did them in her sleep. The looks that differ from the clear formula here just remind me 1996 Todd Oldham (nothing wrong with that, but…seriously?). The footwear is pretty hot tho.
February 27, 2011 at 3:08 am
It's odd with the semi-belts so low, the fake snakeskin trench coats just look cheap and ugly and some patterns there are just not beautiful, there's something off. Shame. This Prada collection isn't as appelaing as the Spring/Summer 11 one, which I adored!
February 27, 2011 at 3:17 am
It's so ugly with the belts so low and it clashes with teh aptterns of the coats. Also the snakeskin plastic trenchcoats look ugly and cheap. What a shame. I really adored teh Spring/summer 2011 colection, but here they've really gone over the top, to ugliness.
February 27, 2011 at 5:30 am
Me ha encantado la coleccion, y los zapatos-calcetin-bota son simplementes adorables.Un beso
February 27, 2011 at 6:22 am
Amazing Make up ! And the 70's inspiration, so cool ! I love the colors, the fabric look great ! I can't stand for Paris Fashion Week Pictures !

can't stop looking at those fish scales
February 27, 2011 at 5:50 pm
the large pailette lime,orange-gold dress with those electric blue suede boots made me say wow.
February 27, 2011 at 6:33 pm
This may have been stated previously, but the devil definitely does wear prada.
February 28, 2011 at 12:45 am
These manage to make stick-thin glamorous models look boxy and dowdy. Does not work for me at all.
February 28, 2011 at 7:51 am
This look isn't working at all for me. The snake skin boots are not complimenting the dresses at all and are very unflattering on the leg.
February 28, 2011 at 9:09 am
I agree, at least in part with Anonymous 4:09 pm. I thought the coat/dresses and the footwear separately were gorgeous, but I was stunned to see how ugly the combinations made the models look.

I love it because my sister did wear dress like those when she was 3 or 4 years old.She was so cute.
February 28, 2011 at 2:12 pm
interesting to read the negative posts. i think this is quite striking and original – typical prada.

February 28, 2011 at 7:49 pm
Oh my, I'm digging this vintage look. The boots are SICK!!!
March 1, 2011 at 1:30 am
When I grow up, I'm gonna wear Prada.Funky, but serious at the same time. Truly for the woman who knows herself.
March 1, 2011 at 8:02 am
Loving the fur – it's great that the fashion worl openly in love with such a enduringly sensuous and wonderfully hand crafted material.
March 1, 2011 at 1:14 pm
I could say its the shock of the new that makes me not like these proportions but there is nothing new about this. Prada relies on the past too much for my taste. I like the color palette.
March 1, 2011 at 8:44 pm
The green/brown "scale" dress with the blue boots is hands down the coolest outfit I've seen in a long time. I love the mix of colours and textures. Better yet, it's so unique I'll bet some people wouldn't even consider wearing it.
March 3, 2011 at 6:55 pm
i don't know why but i breath an air of Edie Sedgwick in this collection and i like it, of course projected in to the future…great prints!
March 4, 2011 at 4:13 am
Minus the boots and snake skin pimp coats, this looks like Marni meets Ports 1961… and not in a good way. I hate this collection lol sorry to say, and Prada usually does me good. The photos are really amazing though.
Ports 1961 2008 FW + Marni SS 2011 + other random Marni pieces.
March 6, 2011 at 11:20 pm
I love the navy coat with the fur on it the most as well as the light blue suede and snakeskin boots and the beige and black suede boots.
March 28, 2011 at 9:03 pm
oooooo boots to die for!
March 28, 2011 at 10:09 pm
May I say, I just love your blog! I have said it before, but I will keep saying it! Oh and all the boots are AMAZING!
