Far from the open-fronted tops and silk hot pants we saw for Spring, Prada‘s Fall 2010 collection was heavy, full, and ultimately classic. The fifties and early-sixties influences were obvious to say the least: cat’s eye glasses, beehives, and hourglass silhouettes will have fans of AMC’s Mad Men enthralled.
Garnering just as much attention as the clothes themselves were Miuccia’s models. She brought out girls most often reserved for the Victoria’s Secret catwalk; amoung them Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, and Alessandra Ambrosio (and, to be honest, we can’t recall the last time we saw Alessandra on a runway in anything more than a bra.)
Not pushing boundaries quite in the way Miuccia is famous for, her Fall 2010 collection for Prada will still no doubt help to spur on the 50s-60s revival that’s already been planted by the seeds of Mad Men and Tom Ford’s A Single Man.
