    This is a very cool collection. It almost makes me want to skip summer and go straight to fall, but not quite :)

    2nd photo…what an awkward combination of a long coat with cropped pants (in a good way). The platform brogues also add to that weird length factor.

    I wondered when the pantsuit was coming back. Long overdue for a revamp – such costume potential – great use of fabrics, not so sure about the choices of shape and cut. Too boxy, and a bit cliched.

    Going gaga for Prada. I like all these brightly printed textiles. So gorgeous. Makes me wish I had picked more scarves and materials like this one I picked up in Indonesia: http://natashafatah.blogspot.com/2011/11/lombok-indonesia.html

    The inspiration for the pantsuits: the airline uniforms from the 60′s designed by Emilio Pucci?

    Stunning prints and very unusual shoes. Prada’s collections always take some time to digest and appreciate.

    Every one is doing the same designs!!!???!?!?!?!?!?!?
    Long live Brocade!!
    Do like some of the combo’s but the shoes and makeup ruin the great fabric along with the depressed look on the models…

    As much as I adore the intricate patterns on the models, I am rather stunned by the purple and pop of orange going on in that backdrop. Seriously gorgeous.

    Wow. I can’t even see the clothes. All I see is eyebrows. I realize that they are trying to make a statement, but the clothes should stand out while everything else fades into the background. It’s supposed to be a fashion show / fashion week. Save these models for an Ernie/Bert reunion show.

    Love Muccia. To me she is always inspiring, so intuituive…..and wearable, from 20 somethings to 80 somethings . Oh sure, we might mix up the shoe and certainly not have the catwalk look of models. It’s a catwalk, they are meant to look over the top. To me, no one does it as inventively wearable and timeless as Muccia. Fantastic!

    great photos, Scott.

    Harsh/curt/brutal/Edwardian-mod cuts of lush genius…the textures must be as rich as they look. The shoes are really insane, especially the first three “rubber-skirted(?)” contrast oxfords. Creating interest through wearing Prada is an under-understatement.

    This is very 60′s inspired – the first look is remarkably clunky and awkward. Beautiful prints unfortunately presented – they look like they are for much older women. Photos 6 and 7 not so scary – no one under the age of 70 would wear 8, 9 or 10.

    such pretty fabric!

    Just incredible but a little bit disappointed because the Men’s show was back to the Empire clothing and I thought that Miuccia would be back with the women collection ! Where are the dresses and silk fantasies ?

    I have a pair of black suede wedge Prada ankle booties with ruffles that I think are exquisite, so I am a Prada fan. The shoes in this collection are clunky and ugly, in complete contrast to the visually arresting prints.

    I am in the minority (as always) as I am a fan of gender, so any kind of menswear collection not for men is a turn off for me no matter how well-crafted. I study and speak French and Italian for the delightful reason that in those languages, everything has a gender: a window is feminine, a boat is feminine, a tie is feminine, bread is masculine, a coat is masculine…..so the love of gender distinctions is ingrained in me.

    @ Marcel Da C–Yes! I was thinking the same thing.
    Then I thought that while I get the concept, and the fabrics are pretty cool, these looks kind of end up looking like… sofas. With feet.

    honestly what is wrong with you people (who liked it of course) – those were some of the ugliest brocades i have ever seen in my life, and silhouette – don’t even get me started
    shoes, agreed, were cool – prada often gets that right, but clothing, good lord miuccia – if style.com happens to be right and this collection sets the direction for womenswear for the next few seasons, remind me to aim my magic plutot at the jersey crowd – because they’re gonna be more tastefully dressed, for once, than the good old nyc/paris/italy/anywhere reasonable to live crowd

    If I don’t iterate it enough, my friend, the photos are absolutely stellar.  These M. Prada collections however are uninspired and completely redundant, in my opinion anyway. Totally boring clothes, nothing much to draw from here for living a real life.  (I get that that’s not the point of Couture, but I can’t even see an in with this Prada stuff lately).

    Looks like they raided Armando Gurra’s prints closet. Love the looks. Wish they would hire him on. They have the daring it would take to give him wings in his designs.
