Autumn 12

Miuccia Prada is known to take bad taste and turn it on its head, transforming the odd or ugly into something interesting and surprisingly wearable – and autumn 12 was no different. This was all about trousers – slim, slightly cropped and layered under everything from wrapped skirts, long dresses, tailored jackets and full-length gilet coats. In contrast to spring’s fluffy pastels, Prada opened with all-black looks dominated by different styles of tailored belted coats splattered with oversized gaudy jewels and brooches. Miuccia then brought in patterns in strange orange, mustard and fuchsia combos, borrowing the 1970s-style mosaic patterns from the catwalk’s carpet. These covered matching trousers, cropped coats and db jackets layered over clashing patterned or crisp white shirts in a way that shouldn’t have worked but did.
