Backpacks Are Back

FashionBackpacks Backpacks Are Back

Used to be back in the ’90s backpacks were the hot item in New York City. You’d go to a coat check at a party (Giant Step, anyone?) and it’d be filled with (mostly) guys’ Northface backpacks. And then those Prada nylon mini-ones became huge and at at that time the counterfeiters were at the height of their powers and you could buy a very good copy all over New York City. In terms of popularity that Prada bag was akin to the LV Speedy today–so everywhere you couldn’t help but think, “Real or fake?” everytime you laid eyes on it.  

So anyway, now Shopbop is saying they’re back in style again. Fashion repeats itself, yes, but always with a twist so it’ll be interesting to see how this trend works itself out this time around…if it does at all.

Prada Baroque Sunglass Illustration Series

Prada1 Prada Baroque Sunglass Illustration Series

Forever with its eye on projecting itself artfully, Prada has commissioned three illustrators to interpret the “Minimal-Baroque” collection of sunglasses from the Spring/Summer 2011 womenswear collection in a series of drawings to be used as part of this season’s campaign. This is an entire personal quirk I realize, but for whatever reason, I have never been a fan of fashion illustrations to the point where they even irritate me! That being said, some of these are quite nice, though that just might be because the collection itself was not only strong, but very graphics and color oriented so it translated well to illustration. Via Dazeddigital.

Prada Spring 2011 Shoes Plus Weird Rumors

tumblr l9ez6tAkUw1qzwof2o1 500 Prada Spring 2011 Shoes Plus Weird Rumors

Apparently the acceptability of Prada’s Spring 2011 collection has been called into question. According to WWD:

Prada firmly denied speculation Monday that it would alter or nix the spring/summer collection it paraded on the Milan runway last week. The rumor went that Prada’s chief executive officer Patrizio Bertelli was unhappy with the colorful and graphic range, which received good reviews from critics and retailers. According to sources, Prada cancelled some writing appointments in Milan for American retailers, saying the company would bring an enhanced offering to New York at the end of October.

It was kind of boxy and bright and art-girl rebellious, though in fairness my take was that Prada collections always need time to ripen. Maybe that’s why the shoes featured here via Purplediary are lying on their side….gasping for air perhaps?

Prada Spring 2011 Runway Video

Prada is one of those brands that doesn’t necessarily reveal itself on the runway. It best trends to emerge with the season. Still, the show seemed to get better as it went on, in part because the emergence of minimalist looks, which is looking like a Spring 2011 trend of some import, is really sticking in my throat.
