Designers find inspiration in the strangest of places. Miuccia Prada could have been tripping on acid in a nighttime forest. The pieces in her collection are like mystical flowers brought to life. Striped and checkered stockings would be the stems, and the organza and tulle layers draped over them would be the petals. Images of fairies are printed on fabrics. If not that, she was visiting the psychedelic era that was the 60's (see bell bottoms and dizzying fabrics). You know it's Prada, because dark green, maroon, and mustard yellows are heavily visible. She doesn't exchange her love for viscose knit sweaters for Spring's incoming uniform/safari-esque coats. Despite the clashing patterns and hectic movements, outfits remain structured and form fitting; waists are well defined and high socks cover vacant leg room. Notes of Spring '08 trends include: gold accents; layered sheer fabrics such as organdy, tulle, and organza; two-tones and tri-color (see shoes), and cinched waists.
