Prada is one of the most exciting brands in the world. What I really adore is the perfect combination of unexpected items, colors or materials and the result is always an extremely influential trendstarter collection. Just think about the huge pattern lace, the exaggerated frills around the hips, the vintage flower print collection: it is the evidence of a genious sense of mix and match. Mixing and matching traditional and conservative with fun, with an edgy touch is always a kind of experiment, and the result is so Italian, so must have, a clear vision and a clear way. It is the power of clear and loud, but not disturbing voice in fashion.
About this Showstudio video:
“Examining key pieces from the international collections for 2011, Object Fetish trains obsessive attention onto fashion’s latest not-so-obscure objects of desire. Showcased in the glittering confines of Selfridges department store, 2011’s finest finery is metaphorically unpicked through film and text, laying bare the underlying themes and motivations behind our current sartorial fixations.”

Power is not just a skill, it is an attitude. Attitude of gathering information and making your own mix and match. Power is the attitude of being able to understand cultures, trends, people, society, power is to be able to make your best selection, power is a way to be your own life editor.
Power is the way how you go trough the crowd, making your own path.
Just to understand:
““Miuccia Prada has an eye for the perverse; her work is about inversion… At first glance there could be nothing sexy about the items themselves: cable-knit woolen socks, square-toed loafers with a sensible block heel and a color palette more pensioner than Prada. But if we take the 50s cartoon theme of Prada’s collection as our jumping off point, it’s easy to view these stockings as Prada’s take on the sexy seamed stocking twisting that erogenous line to the front and rendering it in inch-thick cable-knit.” (Showstudio)
