At Prada

There were only a few trends at the shows that I really loved.

I thought the idea of dark pattern mixing for summer at Prada was one of the best looks of the season.

I could see a lot of designers and companies interpreting this in their own way and next summer we will be dressed better because of it.

    I like that look. The mix of patterns an the slim silhuett makes it just great!

    dear sart
    i completely disagree with you. admittedly, i was not at the show, but based on this photo, the clothes look like mud. perhaps if you are extremely pale, and want to remain so during spring and summer, these clothes may look good on you; however, everyone else will look drab and depressing. who wants that look in the spring/summer?

    I agree I love the show and cloths, although I think it’s for a very specific boy not man

    Great combination … and the fall colours look just right for summer. Miuccia is always so inventive.

    I like the cardigan, but the pants are a little much for me.

    I usually agree with your fashion sense but I’ve got to say, here in NYC where it is so hot in the summer, dark colors are like a magnet for the heat. The pairing is very fresh, I agree, but not comfortable for Summer.

    I also have to say that I support you and your choice to edit comments that cross lines. This blog is popular because of your eye and photo talent.I actually wish that the negative comments were not so rampant.

    With success always comes jealousy and anger.

    Remember that there are many of us who honor and respect the spirit of this blog AND you.

    The relatively muted palette is more than made up for by the complimentary floral patterning, the generously exposed skin–not to mention the light-hearted spirit of the thing.

    A wonderful idea for summer, these.

    This outfit would look attractive if not for those rather hideous patterns.

    I like the colours of the Cardie. It would be interesting to see how it worked fit-wise on a guy who didnt have the body shape of a 9 year old girl

    This particular iteration needs to stop. I look forward to actual street-level versions of this in the coming months, however.

    A autumn/winter palette in summer fabric is an intriguing idea. Why not pale skin, too?

    Trousers are fine, but that surely is a girls cardigan!

    typically silly looking fashion show outfits, that would look horrible on any real man.

    Isn’t that called Fall cruisewear? Here in NYC, where we invented the all-black wardrobe for Spring and Summer, I can see it popping, except on me. But because I would not wear doesn’t mean I’d bet against Muccia.

    Great sweater! It is a bit dark for summer, but I love having clothing that can be worn all year long.

    I like that look for a man, but I’d also love to wear it (I’m a woman). I can’t decide whether I’d do it with sockless cap-toes, or sling-back stilettoes. Hmmmmmm.

    I love dark colors for summer! I’m a redhead so browns and greens work better for me than the harsher “summer” colors. But it’s more than that – I feel closer to nature in summer so these tones feel very right, like escaping the heat in a cool forest.

    What did you think about her low-cut shirts that resemble breastplates…?
