Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Marni Spring 2018.

Spring here in the southern hemisphere so what a great time to be receiving these gorgeous images of Marni's 2018 collection. Lots of classic silhouettes and proportions messed with — waists dropped, hips and shoulders expanded to an almost cartoonish degree; full skirts with frayed hems; pastels mixed with jewel tones; checks and stripes mixed with graphic florals; brocades, chunky embellishments.....
But really, those graphic florals. Long, long sigh....
