Retro Redux -- Prada Navy Cropped Peacoat from Fall Winter 2010

The last bit of green before Winter smears

My beloved Balenciaga Patch Sneaker 





Delicious Eye Candy: Prada Fantasy Look Book of 2010

What more can I say? It's Prada. The heavenly grains on its most coveted Saffiano leather says it all: the history of bold innovation, with nostalgic revisiting of classics. A fancy monogram or a notable logo doesn't even qualify you as a "status symbol", a term only for Prada. It's the spirit of persevering in breaking down and reformation that made Prada Prada. 

I guess there's alway a special place for Prada in everyone of us, a place that admires and appreciates the boldness and the imagination, not necessarily a place that usually impulses us to buy. Many of its collections are just too beautiful for ordinary life. Just like their renowned fantasy look-book, these clothes are made for fairies at wonderland. You'll probably need some pixie dust to pull it off~~ 

The fairies do come down occasionally and let us ordinary people join the party. A wardrobe seemingly retro-inspiried, but since its Prada, it's never real old. Techno fabrics, reinvented proportions, and those big comfy knit collars are only a few tricks get you fascinated... I'm still enchanted, are you? 

The Prada US online store is finally here! Check out their Holiday gift collection :)

  19. whoa! that looks really nice. your prada coat looks so stunning, even in photos! i agree, no words can describe prada. everytime i watch their show, i feel like the messages are a puzzle that i need to decipher before it's over. but hey, it's fun to do so!

  28. Stunning peacoat, I just love Prada. And I agree, the designs don't always suit the ordinary life. But we all need som dazzling magic from time to time.

    I am also a big fan of Burberry, your blog title is brilliant. Thank you for the comment by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hmm, like Burberry, I have always had "issues" with Prada, probably because in Europe you are so often exposed to these brands from a young age via their tacky diffusion lines. But more and more I can really see beauty in what Miuccia has created in her RTW lines, and this is a very nice jacket indeed! I would be most happy with it...
