Favorite of the Day: Prada

The inspiration for the Prada collection sprang from the American greaser culture of the 1950s. In less deft hands, the results could have been over the top. And not in the lovingly flamboyant way that the fashion world often praises. Outside of a few overt references, like the flames that licked the bottom of one dress, most of the story was told through her choice of fabrics and shapes. Leather skirts were paired with sweet cardigans. Luxe satin jackets faintly brought to mind those of The Pink Ladies. Hemlines primly grazed the knees.

And one was left with the idea that these were the types of girls who never got caught sneaking out past curfew.
