Anyway I digress - it's April and I'm sick and against all odds I thought this year would be different. Last year's experience willfully forgotten, the blog post to self ignored. Or perhaps hope just springs eternal. Which is a good thing. I just wish I'd taken the advice I gave myself last year and got my hair cut. Sigh. I look like a Yeti.
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!
