Prada Spring 2011


Spring 2011 season is surely going to be a very colorful and fashion forward season as designers at most of the fashion weeks have flaunted and are still flaunting promising colorful and eye popping fashion trends. After Gucci Spring 2011 fashion show and Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011 collection, FashionFame.com is here with Prada Spring/Summer 2011 collection.


Unlike Fall’s uber ladylike motif, Miuccia Prada opted for stripes, neons, flamenco-inspired silhouettes, flapper style dresses and banana motifs for Prada Spring 2011 Collection at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2011. Wearing bananas shaped earrings, designer said that she wanted the collection to be “fun, bold, brave and bright” and “between minimal and baroque”.


Vibrant hues of orange, green, blue, and radioactive violet in plain cotton suits and neon fashion on runway. Inspiration behind the collection was early twentieth century jazz with flapper style dresses and banana motifs. Talking about Prada Spring 2011 accessories, dyed fox tails, colorful platforms, striped bags, colored plastic glasses and gigantic sombreros were eye catching.


The spring collection for Prada is very colourful to say the least. It's preppy with a tiny infusion of circus clown. I like colour but in some cases it just feels too much. I'm Swedish after all. The shoes above is an example. They are fun and they sort of make me happy but when the h**l would I wear them? I go more the style below. Colourful but a bit more understated.
