Fish scales and Hair at Prada

Wednesday saw the start of Milan fashion week ... and the Prada show.
I've been following all the designers throughout the fashion weeks, however Prada really got my attention with the amazing textures.

As well as the usual amazing Italian tailoring, Prada seem to take a slight influence from the Cubism art movement with a Mondrian influence appearing, with also a slight hint of traditional British check. However the chic black and white with neutral tone colours or flashes of bright blue have a modern twist.

Prada also used plush furs and hairs giving a really wintry feel in charcoal colours and warm caramels for coats and stoles.

My favourite pieces were the garments that looked as though they were made of fish scales. Using translucent coloured sequins, that shimmered and moved beautifully almost like fluid when the models walked up and down the runway.
I think this show shows how attractive the use of textures can be.
