Prada Covers Spring Summer 2011

Prada Spring/Summer 2011

Both collections from Prada and Gucci for Spring/Summer 2011 have been PRed heavily across the globe; you would have to be blind not to notice. Check out the media domination above and below. With five more designer-clad images put into the mix since the collages were made, Prada – at forty two covers – has one more cover than Gucci. Both were incredibly strong showings – which collection did you prefer?

Jason Wu for TSE Runway NYFW
Jason Wu is in his second season for luxury knitwear house TSE, and showed a stellar twelve piece capsule collection for them on day seven of New York Fashion Week. Inspired by collages and the mixing of textures, Wu presented flowing, collarless blouses tucked into rigid linen wide-leg trousers, as well as half-leather, half-knit blazers, while abstract expressionist painter Barnett Newman inspired Wu’s digital prints splashed across dresses, shirts and skirts to resemble hand painted fabric.

He also continued some of the sure-to-be-trendy themes in his namesake collection, putting pleated high-waisted shorts, buttoned-to-the-top blouses, and extra long blazers into the mix at TSE. It was an infinitely wearable collection for a variety of ages – my favourite being a knit light gray skinny suit worn with a collarless sheer white blouse. View Post
