Prada x Ratatat

The fall is so long from now so let’s take a step back! Below is Prada’s new video campaign for Spring/Summer 2010 which includes bright colors, lots of stripes, neon furs, and funky sunglasses. The models in the video are dancing to Ratatat’s “Mirando”.

Although this collection seemed more appropriate for Resort than Spring RTW (must be the general pantslessness), I absolutely love Miuccia Prada’s use of baubles and fabrics.  I could actually see myself wearing most of the collection to class – with some kind of pants, of course – a rare emotion felt during fashion week.  The beachy prints are beautiful, the fabrics look lush, and who doesn’t love sparkling?  (Can someone please DIY the crystal dress? Or the shoes?  The bag?  Anything??)

Though some critics have written off this collection as incomplete or juvenile, I find it interesting and playful, a good combination for Spring.  And I can’t wait until my hair grows long enough so I can wear this cool pigtail look. What do you say??
