Mrs.P strikes again
I tend to love Miuccia Prada's women's collections. The last time I tried on a slew of her gowns at her St.Honoré boutique in Paris, was in November, and I felt a bit like Alice in Wonderland - randomly trying on the most scrumptious of colors and being happily surprised at the results. Prada fabrics mix the unexpected and the desired. They are always innovative and, frankly, bizarre, ranging in textures that combine a new silkiness and thin sponginess, to slinky delicate wools. As a lover and collector of fine and colorlicious socks, my favorite off the Prada Fall 07 catwalks, have to be the footless two-tone socks, which Vogue's Sarah Mower desrcibes as "bonkers." If you're willing to wear something a little bonkers, why not go for luxuriously bonkers?
