Miuccia Prada offered up a collection whose elements were the stuff of tongue-in-cheek turned kitsch turned cult cool as her models sashayed out onto the runway working Geisha Girl chic. A healthy dose of embellished flower power resided in a combination of spray paint white, silk and wool applique and plastic red, across an innovative array of satin kimono wraps, skinny satin skirts, origami folded satin tops and boxy fur coats. Following the Japanese trend for subverting traditional fashions, Prada also opted to turn her footwear into a talking point of the bizarre, pairing wedge sandals with zip-up metallic socks to create the novel ‘sockboot’. Saturating her apparel in hues of pastel pink (hence my fashion-forward chunky knit and hair-bow), mint green, white, red and black, the designer completed the look with a slash of red lipstick.
