Prada

Key looks
For spring 09 we find madam Miuccia in typically playful mood recreating basics in exaggerated and shrunken proportions. The outdoor house coat was the best example.

Inspiration
Prada says she “just changed the proportions” on this, her “most mainstream” collection. Indeed, beyond the playful shapes the inspiration was commercially driven with easy to wear shirts, blousons and knits

Silhouettes
Radically re-worked proportions injected plenty of quirkiness – dress-length polos, toreador jackets, three-quarter length sleeves, even asymmetric T-shirt hems that swung high at the front to reveal male midriff.

Fabrics
Treated tailoring and plastic outerwear kept the shine content high. Oh, and latex belts, anyone?

Colours
While the silhouette was toyed with the colours stayed pretty serious with tan brown, midnight blue, black and olive.
