Last look on Prada’s summer 2012

Looking back on Prada's summer 2012

Prada SS12

The glamourouse Hollywood of the 50`s was the leitmotif of Prada`s SS2012 campaign.

Marilyn Monroe`s legendary pleated dress and accessories used in this fashion period found their revival.

Features of Cadillac and Hot Rods could be seen in some of the prints, leather skirts and bandeau`s, dresses and purses which marked the area of Boogie-Woogie and Rock`n` Roll. One of the creations highlights is the “Hot Rod flamed” shoe.

Pink and blue summer coats in crochet or lace were displayed along with signature sunglasses from MM.

All in all a felicitous, feminine clothing line which unveils the diva in women.

The pretty side of Burberry

The pretty side of Burberry = Burberry Prorsum
Personally I’ve never been a great fan of the luxury brand Burberry-
Everyone who is keen on looking super fashionable has to have that purse, scarf or whatever other item that screams: I am damn expensive!- and not because i am actually unique or outrageous, but because I am Burberry!!
Seeing the beige striped pattern printed over and over again in copied and original designs, for me it became boring and most of all the symbol of nouveau riche naff, if you overdo it.
But then the spring 2012 collection of Burberry Prorsum appeared.
Prorsum means ‘to move forward’ in Latin which is basically what this line of Burberry is doing (unlike -Sport, -Brit and -London) . It keeps moving Burberry forward..
Burberry Prorsum is a bit more expensive than the rest of the Burberry brands but it’s at least versatile so the money spent is at least well spent.

“I’m inspired by women who have that travelled, refined eye-

Women who can blur the line between design and art, who collect art to decorate their homes, who merge mismatched objects.”

(Vogue Japan’s editor-at-large Anna Dello Russo in Mary K. dress)

Creating dizzying, fabulous dresses with her unique hyper-real prints the Central Saint Martins graduate eye-catching designs are a must-haves this season.

Good for all of us that, the 28-year-old Greek fashion designer, is bringing them to high street with her amazing collection for Topshop.

Mr. Louboutin : ‘I don’t care if my heels hurt!’

Mr. Louboutin

“I don’t care if my high heels hurt women.

If you can’t walk in them, then don’t wear them.”

French footwear designer Christian Louboutin helped bring stilettos back into fashion in the 1990s and 2000s, designing dozens of styles with heel heights of 120mm and higher.

The designer’s  goal has been to “make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can.” While he does offer some lower-heeled styles, Louboutin is generally associated with his dressier evening-wear designs incorporating jeweled straps, bows, feathers, patent leather, and other similar decorative touches.
