1950s' Americana: Prada Spring 2012

With Mercedes-Benz fashion week coming up in less than a month it seems like a good time to reflect on my favorite spring collection of 2012 which was Prada. You couldn't read a magazine in the past couple of months without seeing the colorful advertising of the Prada's spring collection which was heavily inspired by classic cars and the 1950s'.

From the cat-eye sunglasses, to the full skirts and cardigans in pastels, to the vintage inspired swimwear, all the way to the quite literal use of the inspiration in the shoes and clutches... it's pretty obvious why this was my favorite collection. That and the beautiful photographs shot by the amazing Steven Meisel. And now for the eye-candy...
