Loopy Laughs at Agatha Ruiz De La Prada

Amid all the seriousness of the financial crisis in America and the muted Milan catwalks, Agatha Ruiz De La Prada's good natured loopiness for her Spring 2009 collection left us all smiles. Exagerated bowties, giant hearts, and entire flower beds create a kind of adult candyland in which the proportions are so much bigger for the express purpose of making us feel like kids again.

Not that we can imagine anyone but the most loopy grandmother or the most darling precocious child actually having the guts to put on a dress with the kind of proportions on display but the mere notion that someone is still cheery enough to try cheers us immensely.
