8bc74 pradafw05

It’s been a lifetime coming but I think I may have actually found a Prada menswear collection I am wholly enamoured by, and no unconvincing cross-dressing this time! Miuccia’s latest showing, for FW 09, was apparently inspired by the general notion of “Survival” and her resolute belief that “to survive, you have to be strong”. Hence, the abundance of gleaming metal studs and almost liquid, yet suitably robust leather. I was even enticed by the palette this time ’round: largely deep black, but also white in the form of crisp shirts and aforementioned studs, and subtle shots of alluringly garish orange, as well as midnight blues which I’ve come to find droolworthy. I hate to think of myself as conservativ when it comes to dress but it seems a return to classicism (albeit with a truly Prada twist) was what I wanted all along.

The shoes of course can only speak for themselves (read: someone for God’s sake purchase me a pair now).
PS. Hello to all the beautifully bedecked bloggers that attended the brunch yesterday! Was hugely enjoyable and insightful meeting you all. Big it up for Annmarie and the Dylan!
