I don't have much time to blog at the moment - not just creating thoughtful posts but visiting other blogs as well. The thought of only 2-3 weeks before my exhibition and nearly half the work left to do (thats right half) makes me feel a bit nauseaus. Fashion blogging seems to be my default position then - a happy distraction and a way to keep connected in someway to the world of blogging. Here we have the Moschino Cheap and Chic Fall 2012 collection. as usual crazy, eclected, colouful and exciting. Love this - it's a bit of everything, pattern, texture, patchwork, colour blocking and retro touches with the silhouettes - which always seems to be the touchstone for what draws me in.
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!
