Prada SS12 – It’s Grease Lightning!

Prada’s shows never fail to have us smitten, so we couldn’t wait to see the SS12 collection hit the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week.

‘Donna e Motori’, aka women and cars, was design supremo Miuccia Prada’s theme for the show, and it was a fashion fest of feminine, sexy pieces contrasted with ‘Grease‘-inspired, T-Bird-worthy touches.

Flame motifs, Cadillacs on jewelled bomber jackets and clutches, and spike heels shooting patent leather flames, had us humming the Grease theme tune instantly.

Far from being too novelty to be wearable, the collection featured chic ’50s pieces like pastel pleated dresses, cats-eye sunglasses, chic high-waisted pencil skirts and printed shell tops. That’s our next season wish list packed out already. GG
