Miuccia Prada presented her interpretation of the season's key trends -- candy colors, applied lace and flowers -- at the Milano Moda Donna Fashion Week with the Prada 2012 Spring/Summer collection.

The Prada 2012 Spring/Summer collection represents a modern, sophisticated woman from a fascinating era full of glamour: the 40's. The retro-chic collection revives the shapes and silhouettes of a romantic pin-up girl's wardrobe, including dresses, gowns, swimsuits and even overcoats. Miuccia Prada masterfully unites these wonderful shapes with the season's candy colors and flower patterns to create a surprisingly wearable, charming collection.

There is a twist in these designs (as there always is with Prada) that make the collection stand out from the other brands: the flower patterns are made of colorful lace, which is applied on most of the garments. This intricate technique cheats the eye. Stats for Fierce 40s Fashion Trending: Older & Warm
