Miuccia Prada’s fifties housewife of fall 2010 has gotten saucy for spring 2011, the show for which just walked in Milan. She’s maybe taken a lover and a love bungalow in Bolivia, and gone on the lam — with a dyed-fur stole instead of a bikini, and suitcases full of dresses that allow for room around her shoulders, should she get a painful sunburn in the armpit, or the waist, should she get pregnant. She’s insecure about her height, and packs either heels, megaplatform heels, or very high board-flat platforms. She scoffs at the white after white after white dresses she sees on women everywhere, and flaunts her bright orange, and her bright blue, and her little green cherubs printed on her chest. The little white she does have is her fur wrap — and some of it, she’s dyed away.
