Upon first glance, the Fall ’09 collection from fashion powerhouse Prada appears to be nothing more than a barrage of muted, well-tailored coats with the odd organza skirt and blouse thrown in for good measure. The Prada F/W ‘09 RTW collection is rife with oddly shaped and shapeless garments; certainly well tailored, but sloppy in appearance nevertheless.
Indeed, one such ‘dress’ from the Prada F/W ‘09 RTW resembles nothing more than an overwrought, impeccably tailored potato sack complete with a boat-neck and saddle bag side-pockets. As it gives the model a markedly podgy appearance, it boggles the mind to think of what such an outfit would do to the average woman; it harkens the name ‘Shamu.’
Further observation revealed Miuccia Prada’s fun usage of fur for Fall 2009. While I do not condone the use of animals in fashion, I did happen to enjoy the detail. Did that is, until it became so frequent and grandiose that I became positively convinced a rather large chinchilla had dubiously latched itself to the garment and was clawing its way up the models body, holding on for dear life.
