Unlike the stereotypical images of what most people thinks about Italian Fashion; The skin thigh high slit gowns & leopard print bustier Über sexual blonde hair bombshell sex kitten, Miuccia Prada has masterfully surprised us season after season with her unique vision of how the “Italian Women” would dressed in the Prada world; Simple, Chic, Girlish with a little quirky twist.

The collection if full of 20’ flapper girls mix with slightly 60’s Courrèges-like silhouette. Patchworks coatdresses from suede, snakeskin to sparkly oversized paillettes (sequins galore is one of the main trend of fall 2011), done in a low dropped-waist, wide belts sits low over big-buttoned details. Each models walked down the runway with a little soft shap bag clutched under their arm, and some wears fur bonnet hats to complete the look.

“I was looking at the obsessions women have with things like python, fur, sheer fabrics like organza & sequin / paillettes, trying to see how sexy materials can look different! It was about a lady, getting more innocent” Miuccia Prada said

As the show goes on, beautiful school girlish looks morph into parade of “Prada Chic Quirky Weirdness” that Prada does it best; mixing the python coat with olive green beaver fur collar, school girlish shirt dress/coats with panels of spiky faux fur and almost “Little Mermaid” fish scales texture looking of overlapping paillettes in Ombré Effect of white, yellow and reds.
