Real Fantasies & Pastiches…



Prada presents her collection “Prada Spring Fantasy 2012” over bonding, overlays and vintage inspirations. An aesthetic success! 
Exploring the nostalgia of hot rodding, golfing, picnicking, the space race, and other wholesome past times. Told through a sequence of 100% handmade collages – continuing the new trend of hancraftsmanship started last season.The real fantasies is a palimpsest of photography that pulls the reader into a realm of hyper reality. And serves as perfect backdrop for Miuccia’s 50’s americana inspired collection.

The innovative campaign is shot by Phil Meech and artworks are done by Jereon Koolhaas and Lok Jansen. The latter two had fun with collages, overlays and fonts for an effect, retro homage can be seen in the artworks.   

And just because Prada does things well, there is also a video by James Lima performed on the same graphics.

Trend Watch


While researching trends for the what to wear guide i researched the trends for the SS 2010. While this season has been high on shine with many designers using sequins and metallic’s in their collection, a trend which is a trickle of last season, it also had it’s grunge with distressed collection by balmain which is to die for.

But the biggest trend which has hit and is here to stay are the prints, YES !! they are back with full bloom, and this time they are really powerful, with prints ranging from small florals to digital. While Dior, Zac Posen and armani are some of the designers which had floral in their collections, the digital could be seen at McQueen, Versace and many others, here’s a look:-

Other trend to watch out for are BRIGHTS,, not only are they fresh, they are by Dior, Versace and many more. Promising not a single dull day,, the brights are here to stay !

then we had designers who had indian influences and brought the tie n dye and ikat to its full modern usage.

some other wardrobe staples of the season would be the the sheer fabrics and the pastels being spring summer. something else that was often seen were the drapes, iconic in that being the Burbery collection which had light pastel skirts and dresses in twisted drapes coiled along the body.

other trends that were there is the inner wear also termed by Elle mag as the Boudouir, all lace net and silk negligee as the trend for the summers, will be posting style boards for that soon .

till then ,, enjoy these :)
