The look The heaving bosoms and Mad Men-inspired dresses that dominated Prada’s autumn 10 offer were replaced for spring 11 with surgeons’ scrub-like boxy shirts and bumble bee-striped dresses.
Key pieces A fuchsia and black-striped bodycon dress teamed with a monkey motif baroque-print cover up stood out, along with an electric blue surgical smock top.
Commercial appeal Stripes of varying thicknesses on a single garment, solid blocks of primary colour and functional workwear-inspired silhouettes are all trends to watch. Also look out for baroque and tropical-inspired prints.
Footwear and accessories Straw, spherical sun hats were hung off the back of necks, while glamour came via bright fur stoles. Footwear had a retro appeal, with Mary Jane platforms featuring coloured soles.
