Milan Fashion Week FW 2008: Muccia Prada is a genius

I have expressed on more than one occasion how much I revere designer Muccia Prada. She can do no wrong in my eyes and she never ceases to amaze me with her ability to make beautiful wearable art that make us question the very definition of fashion. Within the last 3 seasons alone she’s taken us from an ethereal fairy tale to a 1950’s Italian garden party to now. FW 2008 is a massive lace explosion filled with contradictions.


Couture Swiss lace took over the runway in Black, Nude, Orange, and Lt. Blue. Shapes were simple yet detailed, demure yet sexy, structured yet quirky! Collared blouses, pencil skirts, and shift dresses among other things were paired with futuristic sunglasses and origami folded leather heels that look like they could simply fly away.


This brings me to the reason I am truly in awe. While the clothes are stunning, they were almost over-shadowed by the accessories. Prada really brought it this season. Each shoe, necklace, bracelet, handbag, and even a leather hair net was so well thought out that my eyes could barely keep up with each photo. The chunky platform heels with folded leather “wings” on the heels put all basic Black stilettos to shame!

Prada has reminded me that the rule is “head to toe”, not head to ankles and that my footwear matters just as much, if not more, than the clothes I put on in the morning.  Be inspired.

This collection actually had a calming effect on me (the way a day at the museum or a Barry White album does). Yeah Muccia Prada!!
