Summary: Cutting edge style reigned supreme at visionary Miuccia Prada's Spring '10 Prada show. An eclectic motif of various themes unraveled throughout the show, not seeming to have any relation to each other but somehow working together seamlessly. The imagery in the pieces was key, an element Prada used to set the tone as somewhere “between reality and fantasy.” The first set of looks toed the line between avant-garde and vintage, with a gothic palette of oddly voluminous shapes giving away to away to retro-fitted, 40's style swimwear. The harshness of the initial dark, angular designs melted away as a breezy lightness took over and crystallized swaths of fabric twinkled like chandeliers. The sparkling blouses and cover ups moved cohesively with loosely-fitted tanks, shorts, and jackets covered in a filmy, Tahitian island motif. The landscape print provided a young, playful base for Prada to showcase the serious womanliness of her designs. Many of the bottoms featured in the collection were slight, trading up capris and shorts for bolder bikini-lengths. Some were covered by the crystalline cover ups while others were put on display in their silky, water-colored glory. Similar styles have already shown up this season which may indicate an upcoming universal trend. But Prada proves that even in crafting an item like bikini briefs, or a kitschy island print, there is a way to convey the look with the utmost grace and style.
