Blank canvas. That’s what Miuccia Prada insisted 2013 will bring for her brand – a new beginning. Spring/Summer 2013 was reduced to a march of basic clean clothes sported by males and females, older and younger. Gender-oblivious and repetitive. “Same and equal,” said Miuccia. Even the shoes which are usually showstoppers and trendsetters on their own were conformed to a pair of unisex sandals throughout the whole show, taking Prada back to the pre-blogger 90s before all the crazy bananas, flames and golf attire. Check out the Prada Spring/Summer 2013 backstage photos that instantly capture the feeling of the season.
As for me, I don’t know what 2013 has in store but I can see new beginnings on the horizon. 2012 is proving to be a fantastic year and things are about to get even better. Can’t spill anything for now…
I still remember my face expression when I saw the Prada Spring/Summer 2012 jeweled golf shoes in Milan back in March. I was mesmerized – total love at first sight. I knew I had to get them one way or another. Fast forward to the present past a longer-than-expected wait and some post office woes and here they are…in all their shiny coveted beauty. Needless to say, I am the happiest fashion boy in the world today.
Kenzo is one of those cool underdog brands that sadly, goes by unnoticed by many. But not in my books. With recent collaborations with Vans, Barneys and Starbucks, Kenzo Takada is sure stepping up his game. I am seriously obsessed with the coloured tiger sweaters from the Autumn/Winter 2012 and Spring/Summer 2013 collections and they’re sitting way up in my wishlist come cold weather and layering season. Can’t wait to see what Kenzo has in store for the future!
All my life people have told me that some dreams are way too absurd and unreachable, and that it’s okay to set the bar too low and slide through life. Well dear people, sometimes dreams do come true. That’s all.
Love it or hate it, adore or dread the fact the couture show opening was a pantsuit (I kinda dreaded that bit)…there is no denying that Raf Simons’ shift from Jil Sander to Christian Dior proved to be a hysterical successful fashion moment.
