Trust Miuccia Prada to take a trend that’s been lingering on the edges, and spin it into new light. For spring / summer 2013 she created a kind of 60s flower-power Geisha girl: orientalism made mod and tied up in an origami bow.
The Japanese inspired garb at Prada’s Milan fashion week (MFW) show had elements of the traditional but with plenty of whimsical ‘Pradaisms’ thrown in for good measure (to borrow a term from Redken hairstylist Guido Palau backstage at the show). And speaking of hair it was an unusual mix of elegant and punkish – French twist at the back and mohawk-like bangs at the front – while Geisha-like red lips and towering Okobo-style shoes completed the Prada girl.
