The High Street Goes Bananas

The high street’s gone bananas by jumping on the fruity bandwagon, as seen on the SS11 catwalk at Prada, Stella McCartney and Moschino Cheap & Chic. However, it’s Prada that has taken this fruity trend to a whole new level. Forget citrus shades and the cherry print that we’ve seen again and again – it’s time to introduce the banana. Not a fruit choice that you’d think of adorning yourself with, but even Anna Wintour has jumped aboard the fruit train and proved this brave print can be worked into a more subtle ensemble. The baroque monkeys and bold stripes that accompanied the Prada SS11 catwalk are certainly the braver way to wear this print. But for a more laid-back approach, look no further than Topshop banana leggings. What’s stopping you? Go ape! RS
