The Prada SS12 Campaign was Inspired by 50’s Hollywood glamour,  including  Marilyn Monroe in her ever famous accordion-pleated dress from the film The Seven Year Itch.

The femine 50’s touch is evident, prints, scarves, dresses, sunglasses and purses to die for. The main inspiration came from the all american vintage vehicles of the time ‘The Cadillac‘ and Hot Rods. The cadillac features in several of the prints, dresses, purse hardware, bandeau’s and leather skirts, plus, embellished and printed satin coats. However, the ultimate in car adoration comes in the shape of ‘The Shoe.’ A preview of the ‘Hot Rod Flaming Heeled Shoe’ can be seen at the beginning of the video. If one pair is not sufficient, there are other alternatives available with a variety of car parts adorning these unique heels. Definitely the absolute must have show stopper!

Prada- Spring Summer Campaign 2012

Prada also offered up coats in lace or crochet in palest pink and blue. Garments in colours that ranged from palest blue teamed with maroon, sherbert lemon and mint greens. Bathing suits that screamed Hollywood glamour. Red Lips with signature sunglasses Miss Monroe style. Relax by the pool looking fabulous.

This is more than a collection, indescribable, or quite simply, truly inspirational, justifiable genius. I defy any woman not to desire this collection. Oh! and yes there was a Pink Cadillac!
