Would you like to drive around in a car that looks like a shoe, or a handbag, or a pair of sunglasses or even a bikini? If yes, God (and a good shrink) help you! If no, then by the same logic, you probably wouldn’t want to wear a pair of shoes, or sunglasses, or a bikini, or a handbag that were inspired by automobiles either. But no one told that to the geniuses working for Prada who decided it would be a great idea (and a great excuse for their lack of talent) to design a whole spring collection for women using motifs from the automobile fashion of the 1950s.
Seeing how the year 2012 came with all those doomsday theories tagged to it (which could have made for a delicious Mayan- or death-themed collection), we’re surprised that a brand with resources like Prada chose to recycle ideas that we already see plenty of in discount kids’ clothing and toy stores (and Japan). And we really don’t know what’s sadder, that the Prada Women's Spring Summer 2012 prêt-e-porter collection makes us wanna scratch our eyes out or that the designers who work for them are too cocky to realize that people won’t buy idiotic-looking stuff just because it has Prada stamped on it!
