It’s Official!

Miuccia has spoken… In the collection she showed for Prada in Milan yesterday, she singlehandedly endorsed and put her seal of approval on satin, shine, color, and the sportswear influence (which were trends on New York catwalks as well). I think the retailers should all have smiles on their faces- thinking about how upbeat the store windows and displays will look come spring. By the way, her collection also helped clarify for me why Ralph Lauren’s overly vintage-y, distressed, and somewhat ‘old’ fashioned show was not the highlight it seemed to be for so many….(do we really need to see big brimmed straw hats?) Since we are firmly ensconced in the new millennium, there should be more of a modern aesthetic.
