So Cathy Horyn and Sarah Mower are banned from the Dolce & Gabbana show. The reason given to the press by the duo's rep is stated as "personal". But, we all know that they are not invited because of giving unfavorable collection reviews.
I know this is nothing too new, but I always wonder what's the point?? A critic's job is to critic and express their own opinion, whether it's good or bad. The duo's fame was pretty much created by the press in early 90's, but they seem to forget this.
I also think that the greatness of any artists is to confront and still invite the "enemy" critic to see their presentation of works. This shows even greater strength and self-confidence in believing that their work is good.
Slightly surprised that Ms. Prada went for a Scandinavian girl opening and closing her show considering her previous Slavic stars such as Sasha, Marya. But, you never know what to expect from a Prada show.
Her name is Suvi Koponen. She is from Finland and has some serious boyishy vibes. A Supreme girl.
I am starting to count the weeks until I see her all over in editorials and some covers. Rumors has it, she is already scheduled to work with Meisel.
Miuccia Prada to me is much like Madonna. Changes occur constantly and all aspects of previous work never gets repeated. They both are like a time machine that only goes forward in the future seeking new ideas and concepts that eventually will influence society in many artistic ways.
Knowing this, I was expecting something drastic. Something that people will say it's weird, hate it, interesting but don't understand it. Well, it was delivered. The genius of Prada is that she loves giving hints of references (African) but adopting it in her own way, which makes one think for a while before commenting any opinions. Those indications are often interpreted and mixed with elements or ideas/feeling of today's world such as backpacks in this collection or depression/war/coldness in her fall '06 collection.
Is there a more original way to cover your head than a shiny turban? Didn't think so. This 40's/early 50's vibe was combined with distinct volume play, which was kept for the waist above. Colors were rich and deep as jewels and the fabrics even richer with shiny satins leading the way. Light beiges and traces of brown provided for a good contrast. Although, this may not be the most commercial Prada collection besides the very salable accessories, but could impact many of us soon.
And don't forget that economists measure the economy according hemlines--the shorter, the better. Prada's hemlines? Micro.

She opened for Marc Jacobs.
She has that weird (in a good way) look that is still going strong.
She has amazingly strong bone structure with some sharp angles.
She has a cold stare.
She appeared in every major NY show.
She is Iekeliene Stange. A Marilyn girl.
And my personal favorite at the moment.
