I’m sure you all have seen Prada’s Spring collection everywhere by now. If you think you haven’t, you have! You just didn’t know it. According to Fashionista, clothes from the collection have been seen on 48 magazine covers already!

The silhouettes are so simple, even mimicking scrubs a nurse would wear. What’s making such a splash though, are all the bold colors, stripes, and color blocking. Everything in the collection is so fresh and bright, making them perfect spring staples.

My absolute favorite look from this collection is the last photo. The blue monkeys and bananas- that shirt is spectacular (I know, that’s such a fun word and I rarely use, but it so applies here). That whole combo is just genius. The only thing I can’t stand are those flatforms in the second photo (from top). I’m sure they’re comfortable and all, but they’re just too plain and man-repellery* for my taste.

How to wear these looks in real life? 
Focus on the color choices in this collection, and try to find pieces that are neon bright, and pair them with something else just as bright. Use black stripes to tone down the color.
Hint: Some are calling Zara, Prada’s baby sister. (Although I really don’t think Prada owns bright colors and stripes.) Check out Zara’s Spring ’11 lookbook for great pieces to add to your spring/summer wardrobe.
Also see this post about where to find simple bright striped shirts- they’re coming up with brand new colors soon!

Will you actually wear brights this season? How will you pull them off? If you wear anything this fun, send me photos and I may just blog about your style!

*man repeller- outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see: human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.

    i love the collection! they’re fun and wearable. i also like the monkeys and banana out of the bunch..

    would i wear bright colors?
    sure. but not all the way through. i can wear a piece of bright clothing if i can pair it also with a neutral color. like a white shirt and a bright colored skirt.

      Yup, I’m probably more like you in the sense that I may do a bright, but rarely do a bright on bright…we’ll see though this summer!

    I love the first dress, the green with the gold. I would definitely wear that. But what is up with the hairstyles and makeup? I feel like the whole collection is so bright and happy but the hair is so severe and scary lol.

      Yea, I totally understand, but I kind of like that kooky contrast!
