The look Hot-rod cars and glamorous 1950s silhouettes were the driving forces behind Prada’s collection.
Key pieces Printed bandeau tops and appliqué leather pencil skirts were emblazoned with hot-rod graphics. Other highlights included silk jackets with floral appliqués and 1950s-inspired high-cut swimsuits. Beading was used to embellish jacket shoulders and collars, while knife-pleat skirts stopped just short of the knee.
Colours A pastel palette of powder blue, lemon and candyfloss pink continued spring 12’s love affair with colour.
Commercial appeal The fun flames and hot-rod graphics are sure to cruise onto high streets across the UK. Also tying into other key spring 12 trends were pencil skirts and the appliqué floral jackets.
