Power is around every corner in this FW12 Prada Men’s show. True that Gary Oldman walking the red carpet exaggerates the tension, but i have to admit the clothes itself and the styling is still generating the power originally.
Miuccia Prada always brings us surprises whenever new collection launches. This time she gives us gentlemen from the post World War II with an Victorian accent – white turtleneck underneath, double breast long coat and pocket ornaments.
Despite everything about power women and unisex thing, suits are Men’s fate. No fussy, just the tailored cut, with minimal ornament and cordial colour. Madame Prada shows us the chicest accessories possible on pockets, sunglasses, check! Floral neckpiece, check! Brooch, check! Yes! We almost forget all these little things for a gentlemen.
And yes we are so blind to explore the subtlety of colour, how pinstripes and graphic pattern could possibly become to harmony.
After all these gentlemen’s package, the outfit itself generate power, the power of neatness, power of a la mode, power of formality.

Music is all around me every morning on my way to the office. It is a habit to play myself a featuring song to begin a brand new day. I guess most of us is a good listener to whatever music. Someone DO have the gift to sing, some can play the piano, some can compose a beautiful melody, a few talented ones can put all the good things together and bring us consonance. Miuccia Prada is one of THE FEW GOOD ones in fashion, brings newness to people every season.
Especially when Abbey Lee Kershaw walks down the runway in the appealing printed tube this SS12, we are well aware of wildness in an appropriate and sophisticated way. The collection brings us an exciting adventure to the American western highway, but it’s all about enjoying the wild without sacrificing the metropolitanism.
Delicate embellishment in floral shape, look so fragile, surprisingly it gives a power of femininity when it meets leather. This is how Ms. Prada works her girl power tricks. The masterpieces are girls’-mannish-softness. Say for instance, the drop shoulder on the jackets, when you strip down all the details are they literally a men’s bomb jacket? Stolen jacket from boys always works best.
Muccia Prada is not in the pool of being the hottest trend, she indeed is the trend setter, she combines the masculine elements like bullets and flames and car onto light and sheer chiffon, then tints them with girly sweet baby blue and rose pink………….nothing but irresistible!
