let's talk shop

Prada shop. I go immediately to Milan when I hear the name, see tawny, bronzed shoulders sloping with easy elegance. This spring's looks were some of the most exciting I've seen from the house recently. Part Milanese housewife, part tri-athlete toting stones of colored jewels. It had me convinced.

I loved the unexpected modernity of this collection which, we should point out, included pleated skirts, '60s style leather purses, and pinwheel lace. It was ladylike but tough. There was more than one leather skirt, plenty of midriff, and the most convincing female rendition of the thunderbird slick-back I've ever seen. (Bonus points for those of us growing out our bangs.)
