Everyone loves Prada stripes

The high street may have fully embraced (read: killed) colour blocking and brights, but magazines are going crazy for Prada stripes this season. The number of covers alone is fast approaching FIFTY, let alone editorials. International Vogue editions are absolutely loving the collection, featuring pieces with stripes as well as monkey and banana motif printed pieces. Here are my favourite of the 48 covers..and counting! Anna Wintour’s WSJ cover definitely makes the cut though you can’t see much of what she’s wearing. I think that the fact that she chose Prada for this rare cover and interview speaks volumes. 

Looking beneath the bright jewel tones, florals and cool neutrals littering the high street, plenty of stores have been inspired by prada’s bright, punchy prints. They’re a bit sassier than block colours and the perfect bold antidote to pretty florals which are getting a bit boring and predictable in Summer. Head to toe stripes might be a bit much for some, so choose a statement piece like one of the gorgeous skirts and pair with either brights or neutrals.

    I totally heart this Prada collection which is unusual for me as normally I don't really like what Miuccia has on offer. I am trying so hard not to buy it all after I got the creepers…xxxDuck

    Love Prada stripes. They are so fresh but retro at the same time. I have bought a bright green shirt with the idea of painting black stripes on it…. who knows if I get to this… and also, bought several banana charms off Ebay to make me Prada banana earrings. What a fun post!Have you seen Natalia's Prada dress from Natalie's creations?http://nataliecreations.tumblr.com/post/4299709490/how-to-t-shirt-reconstruction-inspired-by-prada#disqus_thread
