Milan Fall 08: Prada

Ah, Miuccia, she never ever disappoints. Whether I fall immediately in love with the collection or I am left scratching my head, she still always manages to present something new and make me think. This season I was left somewhere in the middle. While the Victorian austerity of the clothes was unsettling, it was also sort of seductive. The shoes were especially spectacular. Let's see what I'm talking about.

I'm not a big fan of the peplum, but I have to admit that I love the way she paired a regular men's button-down shirt with a a hyper-feminine lace skirt. It reminds me of the kind of shirt that boys might wear in a certain Raf Simons book. I would definitely venture to wear this look.

THIS IS SO COOL! I just love that she went the opposite way and used lace in unexpected pieces and shapes. The creme button down lace shirt is both military inspired and demure at the same time. The combination of the orange with the khaki is making my heart beat faster.

The skin-toned turtleneck with this dress creates an almost painful unsexy look, and somehow makes it alluring at the same time. I know, I know, that doesn't even make sense! But think about it, here is a dress that's pretty much see-through and then the part that you chose to cover up is your neck? You have to be the most confident woman ever! Also? Omg, Angela Lindvall!

Yes. Yes. Yes. It's awkward and sort of secretary-ish and sexy without being sexy secretary. This is totally rad.

This was one of the closing looks. I think it's the one that I find the most conventionally unattractive, yet I'm also in love with it. It's girly and traditional in an Amish sort of sense. But maybe that's why I like it so much? Cause it's so weird.

Oh, the shoes, the shoes, the shoes. The only way the first pair could've been any cooler is if it was made out of wood or to look like wood or something. The rest of the pairs are clearly following her desire for crazy and whimsical shoes, and for once I have to say that I would wear these weird little creations on my feet.
