While the official press release uses words like ‘anti-paradise’, ‘luminous floral prints’ and ‘femme fatales moon-bathing’, which is all well and good, all I see are Hawaiian prints from the Spring-Summer 2014 collection that I want, but now offered in bits and bobs leading up to March 2014. First there were the pieces from their holiday collection which I already previewed here, and now here we’ve got pieces from the Cruise 2014 collection which I’m told will be coming in from November onwards with the first shipment of bags and SLGs already here.
Look closely and you’ll see a more fleshed-out collection from Cruise 2014, from hard luggage pieces covered in hibiscus and palm leaf prints, to boldly striped duffles, printed canvas backpacks and colour blocked handbags. Which in my books are naturally all wants.
And there’s just something about Miuccia Prada putting the models in khaki sneakers that’s just so subversively delicious. And so her. What are you most hoping to get?
