    • Coolekat

      Very flat.

    • Blair Sylvester

      My first thought was elementary school class pictures at an all girls school. Why oh why couldn’t my elementary school photos be styled by prada

      • Imasewsure

        Maybe Prada Portrait Day at Beverly Hills High????

        • Blair Sylvester

          bring your mommys bra to class day?

      • carlaaxtman

        My first thought was “The Plastics”, a la Mean Girls.

        • Blair Sylvester

          I can see that but they don’t do those class portraits past sixth grade in most cases . It’s more the staging

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        middle class girls’ basketball team. sponsored by prada. there’s a dream come true.

    • tallgirl1204

      Love the colors! Do NOT love the bra-on-the-outside color blocking (“brocking”?).

      • YouGoGlenCoco

        You mean lack of colours??

      • hughman

        Bradas.

    • Laura Renee

      Creepy looking dolls. I only like the shoe/stocking/purse picture — notably, no faces in that one (either the models’ or in the clothes).

      • conniemd

        I just cannot with random faces on purses or clothes. Now a T-Shirt with John Lennon and a pithy saying I can wear, because you are expressing something about yourself by who you like and what it says, but just faces to me are creepy.

    • Sarah

      Georges Braque with bejeweled legwarmers. Hard to look at.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Legwarmers and appliqued boobs. Not a fan. But the cheerleading team photo is nicely lit.

    • Danielle

      I always feel like somebody’s watching meeeeeeee

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Tell me, is it just a dream?

        …..a really bad dream.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I feel the clothes have some sort of connection with Mattisse’s Red Room painting. I like it.
      Nevertheless, The bra colorblocking is ugly and unflattering.

    • Tatiana Luján

      suede can look so cheap when tinted in bright colors.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Here are some sullen white people selling you $400 legwarmers.

      • Rand Ortega

        CAN’T. STOP. LAUGHING!!!!

      • Michael Martin

        To be fair, there are two token very-light skinned black women. Or maybe they’re just white women that have seen sunlight sometime this decade. It’s hard to tell.

    • MissusBee

      Reminds me of soccer teams, which is fun, even though I don’t like soccer.

      Overbra on mortals means you forgot your meds.

    • MilaXX

      Would love to have one of those bags.

    • Blair Sylvester

      smells like preteen spirit

    • crash1212

      Love those shoes. Love the bags. First thought upon seeing the group shot….too. many. faces.

    • Imasewsure

      Haute Benetton… but I kinda dig it

    • hughman

      Mean Girl Sorority at Clown College.

    • ovarB

      If I stare at this long enough does a dolphin pop out? No?
      Lawdy Pete these images make my eye balls buzz!!

      • alyce1213

        It made me feel a little dizzy.

    • IraKi

      The bra thing over the dress is a design element I find extremely unappealing.

    • stillnotalice

      The models faces made me thing CGI.

    • ojosazules

      That is some sensible footwear for Prada.

    • uprightcitizen

      Oh please, oh please let me see someone wearing tube socks (jeweled or not) without feet and clunky wedges on the street here in San Diego. Stuff that silly always brightens my day. But not that makeup and those expressions. Stuff that scary will ruin the previously brightened day. And P.S., those textured external bra things in the second to the last picture look enormous. If that’s the right size for these girls, what would these look like in a real-world size?

    • Funkykatt

      I can’t distinguish one thing from another. Too busy for my aging eyes.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Just in time for the 2014 Legwarmers World Cup.

    • DesertDweller79

      What’s with the legwarmers? Really?

      I, too, like the colors. But,…. really with the bra on the outside? No.

      Love some of the shoes and the bags.

    • demidaemon

      Hideous clothes, badly photographed. Ugh.

    • Vainte

      They are fembots. This is Prada’s tribute to Austen Powers.

    • J. Preposterice

      so lately whenever I see prada I think of the oliver sacks story about the patient who was an artist whose art got more and more abstract as his condition deteriorated.

    • anotherkate

      This was such a strange collection but I have to say–the shoes are fabulous.

    • titaness25

      If this is the future, I want no part of it.

    • quiltrx

      The clothes and calf-warmers are indescribably ugly, but man they make a hell of a bag.

    • nyll18

      They look like they want to eat my soul.

    • Therese Bohn

      Waxwork Barbies.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      You know, when I was a little girl dreaming of wearing couture – well, let’s just say that little fantasy never included the howls of laughter that would surely arise if I tried to leave the house in some of these creations. Sorry Prada, but this is just fug.

    • Fred Vaughn

      Who is that black girl? She’s my dose of Vitamin FIERCE for the day!

    • Jackie4g

      There’s too much to look at all at one time. Headache inducing photos.

    • YoungSally

      Lord — it looks as and gym-uniform flat in the advert as it appeared on the runway photos. Sra. Prada….this may be a case where overuse of Photoshop would be TLo approved.

    • Trickytrisha

      Golly gee… how did Prada know I’ve been pining for bejeweled legwarmers? And silly-ass faces all over my clothes and bags. This looks like their version of Hello Kitty, with great shoes.

      • Qitkat

        I love the shoes! and not much else.

    • Gatto Nero

      Miuccia ventures ever deeper into cartoon land. She’s still testing the boundaries between beautiful and ugly, but with more humor.
      Love the shoes.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Strong Tropicalia vibes. Bat macumba hey hey, batman.

    • Qitkat

      This makes me think that the next season of AHS ought to be about fashion.
      So many possibilities. Giant hovering bodyless faces. Living mannequins who can never change their expressions. Taking the absurdity of the shoe industry to new levels. Creepy podiatrists (apologies to any BKs in the profession). Running with scissors.

    • iusedtobeelegant

      Custo Barcelona 12 years ago!

    • Anna

      I can’t wait to see Jena Malone on the red carpet in the Trompe L’oeil bra sweatshirts.

    • boweryboy

      Garish and tacky. The trompe l’oeil bras are the worst.

      One thing I can say about Prada is when I love a collection, I really love it, and when I hate a collection it’s not for a lack of being interesting.

    • Diego!

      I got dizzy…

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Perfect, I’ve always wanted a dress that makes it look like I’m wearing my bra outside of it!…said no woman ever…

    • dashwoodstole

      HATE the bra print top thing, what the fuck even is that, but I love the way this shoot is styled, especially the eyewear one. No bullshit, just pretty colours and good composition.

    • JimMcC

      Steven Meisel did the best he could, but this has to be one of my least favorite collections of the past couple years. It looks better here than it did on the runway, but that just means I’ve downgraded from repulsion to simple hatred.

    • lifeisastory

      I just had a flashback to the Benetton ad campaigns of the late 80s.

    • understateddiva

      These zombie-fied Prada ads never do anything for me. It’s somehow especially creepy with jeweled leg warmers. I mean, I find these clothes a bit silly, but their selling point is the exuberant color and whimsy. Why deaden that with somber poses?

    • Ann VerWiebe

      Too much color all at once! I can’t see anything!
