I love these pics of Spanish label Bimba and Lola's Spring 2012 campaign by photographer Alice Rosati. The soft pastel hues make such a great background for the retro inspired designs and brilliantly colourful accessories. Brightness today to guard against the ongoing gloomy skies and rain. Also as procrastination fodder for a the Study Semester's major brief handed out last week. I'd been looking forward to the greater freedom this course allowed but now I'm seeing the problems of too much freedom and a lack of prescription - so hard to know where to begin.
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!
