2010 Spring Milan Fashion Week: Prada

For Spring '10, Miuccia Prada concocted a collection inspired by sea and surf. However, it wasn't your typical beach-inspired line. “Beach and antiquity — high and low — it is all the same,” said Miuccia Prada. “It is supposed to be an ironic take — sometimes nostalgic, for a contemporary take on antiquity for those who don’t understand the beauty of the past.” Well said, Miuccia.

Red-lipped models, complete with tousled ponytails, exuded a youthful innocence as they walked down the runway in a variety of crisp shorts — ranging from knicker-inspired, to long and lean, and even a couple of biker shorts — structured jackets, and embellished tops adorned with palm trees, in some darker hues for the print-challenged. But it was really the crystal-laden pieces that stole the show. These shimmering objects, via dresses and shoes, dazzled with every step. Definitely unique, and with a little modifying, like adding a slip underneath the dress, icons such as Ashley Olsen or Diane Kruger would surely take the bait.
