INSPIRATION Prada FW 2012||13… Marc Jacobs Resort SS||2016

I love how Marc Jacobs continuously declares his love for Miuccia Prada. Appreciation from one designer to another is certainly not a common thing in the fashion world. Through his Resort SS||2016 collection [right] Marc makes once again [click here for another example] a non-verbal and more visible homage to Miuccia and her Prada FW 2012||13 runway [left]. Though one might not be able to detect a similarity in every single outfit, overall you can feel the Prada vibe in the garments, the meticulous embellishment, the styling and even that catwalk.

INTO THE ARCHIVES… Miu Miu [various seasons] and Miu Miu resort SS||2016

Miuccia Prada has presented yesterday her Miu Miu resort 2016 collection [all rights] in Paris, which exhibited an unusual mix of best of patterns from past collections. There were the Miu Miu SS|| 2010 nude and swallow patterns [left above], a deja vu of the SS||2011 ‘American Graffiti’ leather jacket motifs [left center] and the birds of the FW 2011||12 40ties inspired collection [left bottom]. I’d love to know the reason to present the spirit of the past so strongly in this collection,... a Miuccia mystery!
