When the opening look of Prada‘s Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection started things off like this – I grew very, VERY afraid! Perhaps I’m still feeling the disappointment of Gucci‘s very autumnal Spring 2015 shown yesterday (here)…but opening a spring collection with a winter coat ticked me off from the get-go. Sorry! (Not sorry!)
In case you need an official announcement: FALL does NOT qualify as the new SPRING!
Honestly, there is no collection between Spring to Summer. There’s no Resort to bring in a maxi dress – or Pre-Fall to splice things up. This is what Prada wants us to wear in the sweltering heat? Are they JOKING? Maybe they’ve missed them memo – but we’re in the middle of a climate change – as in warming, not as in arctic temperatures in the month of July.
Yes, these autumn clothes are gorgeous. But given that this is the Spring/Summer 2015 Collection I’m completely turned off. Couldn’t they have put this off a few months to premiere at February on the Fall 2015 runways? Wouldn’t that make 100% more sense?
I mean, yes – we know the soft pastels and florals of spring are overdone…but at least they fit a purpose. They’re clothes that are soft, light and breathe. As in, clothes appropriate for the rising temperatures around us. Who the heck wants to wear a wool coat this summer?
What do you think? 😉
