Prada S/S 08

Take a close-up look at some of our favourite items from Prada's S/S 08 collection

Yet again the Prada show during Milan fashion week blew everyone away with a Spring/Summer 2008 collection that stood out from anything else this season. Miuccia Prada's continues to prove her genius and her unrivalled guts; this season she sent a flight of flower fairies down the catwalk. We saw a walk through an Arthur Rackham style Glastonbury/Camden market where nymph like girls wore flares and platforms; and all things mystical and magical including fake watch accessories and our favourite shoes of the season.

The collection was what everyone had been waiting for; it was the unexpected twist that we have been craving in the sea of patent, shiny, hard and sexual of Autumn/Winter 2007. The quirky illustrated fairies swoop across floaty dresses paired with checked tights; and flared knitwear, tulip skirts, checked fitted dresses and the most incredible Jack and the Beanstalk-esque platforms make up the eclectic and brilliant collection. Prada was the show that made your heart skip a beat in awe of a living legend. Long live Miuccia!
