Prada's new Print Collection hearkens la Dolce Vita, drawing inspiration from a single 1950s outfit for a line of prim dresses, ballet flats and chain handbags splashed with archive prints.
The retro-style shift dresses with lovely full skirts create a classic silhouette as a canvas for a kaleidescope of prints ranging from watercolor and oversized florals, muted swirls and intricate graphic motifs. To mix and match each dress is a set of ladylike chain-strap handbags and feminine flats in the same set of patterns.
Each of the array references fabrics found in the Prada archives and when mashed up into inventive ensembles among dress and accessories, provides endless amounts of modern-vintage summer sartorial fun. Nitro:licious has got more pictures here.
