Resort 2010: Prada

I'm always delighted and surprised by the ingenuity of Miuccia Prada. This isn't, like many other collections, a dumbed-down bunch of commercial clothes. Truly, it's inspired and directional, yet feels light and effortless. The Holiday & Brown silks that she has used before, mixed with the 'batik' print feels innocent and fresh. It's 'African' without being predictable or pedantic. It's very No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency (the Alexander McCall Smith novel) don't you think? I can't wait to see the Anthony Minghella film of this book.
