Holy Pinata Batman!
If there is one constant trend in the collections that catch my eye it’s those with color. Not just splashes here and there, but it’s the obnoxious combination of bright hues that make my excitement meter shoot from 0 to 100 in seconds. In Spanish designer Agatha Ruiz De La Prada’s Spring 2010 collection, I got that surge of energy when she sent volcanic shades of candy apple red, orange, electric blues and the like down the runway at Russian Fashion Week. Infusing this vibrant color pallet into her designs, sprinkling the runway with a plethora of textures, De La Prada’s collection reminded me of a pinata bursting at the seams with colorful candies of all shapes and sizes, only this time those candy coated creations were wrapped on beautiful models.
Agatha Ruiz De La Prada may not be a recognizable name in America or other parts of the world, but she’s a rather seasoned veteran of the fashion industry, famous for her vibrant and innovative designs. This season was no exception with the designer sending down the catwalk hot pink jackets with huge orange buttons, art deco inspired evening gowns, quilted leather cigarette pants fit for any sidewalk anywhere. De La Prada added a bit of fun to her spring collection with the addition of tiered cocktail dresses, heart shaped handbags, and shades that were a merge between cat eye and coke bottle glasses. This collection is just the shot of excitement I needed. Fun, hip, innovative, and wearable, all the things a good cohesive collection should be. Plus there’s color!
