Gems! Truly Outrageous Prada Resort Collection

prada resort 2009

The resort shows are still going strong and on Tuesday Prada debuted her collection. I always look forward to Miuccia Prada’s shows because she has a way of making anything look new in a chic dignified way. Her resort 2009 collection was simple: The palette was very dark, mostly black with a bit of green and brown. She had lots of windbreaker-like jackets and lightweight trench coats paired with biker shorts and skinny pants. Her triangular bikini tops paired with flowing long skirts was very bohemian – but in a city-girl way – no hippies here. The common thread tying the pieces together were giant gems adorning everything from clothing, shoes and jewelry. These weren’t be-dazzler stones, these were giant clusters of gems that looked like they could maybe be heavy, but looked airy and light. The scene stealers though, were the the earrings (ginormous and bejeweled) and her plain black shoes: A very plain flat slip on and a t-strap. Both were shoes that I could see myself wearing everyday, forever.
