What I have learned by now is that April and May are two of the sickest months of the year. Every year. And this one is proving no different. It might seem a bit depressing to go into these months with that expectation but in other ways it can help to be forewarned and prepared. (eg get a haircut in March). Also it avoids the foolishness of expecting otherwise despite years of evidence to the contrary. Not to mention disappoinmtent. And I direct that comment soley to Ruth Ostrow and her book "Life Magic" which is written on the premise we all get in life what it is we expect (because for sure Ruth has time in her day to scour the web for obscure blogs and their opinion of her book.)
While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!
