Vintage Americana hits the Catwalk

50’s USA dominates 2012

So designers have finally realised it’s all about the 50’s *sigh* At first I wasnt too sure if I liked the idea of extortionately priced designer pieces inspired by the 50’s because for me its just not very…Rock n Roll. HOWEVER as a Fashion student it is in my job description to embrace the beauty of designer collections and I found it truly impossible not to love the PRADA S/S12 campaign. The undeniably cute muscle car print and Cadillac stilletoes are mixed up with crystal embellished silks and cat’s-eye sunglasses to create an ultra feminine but fun look. The Mens collection is equally as appealing, with quirky print shirts and Elvis inspired studded jackets. Although I wouldnt normally blog about high fashion I thought this would at least be of interest to show just how iconic this era is…enjoy
