One of the things that drive me nuts about interior design blogs/magazines/books is the endless showcasing of beautifully appointed homes where the design is reliant on the high end architectural features of the house ie. style only attainable by those with a huge income. I've chosen these pics because the styling could be in any old room. The transformation a matter of a coat of paint and a good eye for retro. Plus I love a vintage sofa.
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!
