    • clatie

      Nope.

      • SierraDelta

        “Nope.”

        “Yuck” was what I said out loud to my laptop. Tomayto, tomahto.

        • demidaemon

          I say “Nope” and “Yuck,” with a touch of “Try again, you lamers.”

        • grasshack

          Looks like Thrift Shop finds to me…

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

      The sheer things with scene-kid scalp trimming are particularly disturbing.

    • NMMagpie

      Nothing terribly attractive as it is presented. The patterns are interesting but busy in such a way that a little would go a long way.

    • Blair Sylvester

      Some of the sweaters and coats are good. I expected prada to move away from sheers just because they are so done and I expect her to explore new things .

    • Justine

      No to the runway styling, but there are some pieces here that I would love to own, especially that purple coat.

    • Imasewsure

      Let’s hope Gerard Butler doesn’t see the mens versions of those ugly monkey fur (excuse me… shearling) coats!!

    • Miss wks

      ok…so this season it’s all about the ugly-ass clothes that force you to notice the beautiful shoes. I’m cool with that.

      • NMMagpie

        Except for those white majorette boots.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Interesting. Anna Sui’s collection was more literal, but Prada’s is a more deconstructed idea of a future flapper. I will say that the purple coat with the yellow trim is stunning.

    • barbarienne

      So the standard for this season is, “Random patterns and colors and layers that have nothing to do with each other. And maybe kill a few muppets.”

      • demidaemon

        Yes, Elmo’s dead, everyone. if you would like a dress made from his skinned corpse, please contact Prada and make sure you have a surplus of money in your checking account.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I was pretty much on board till we got to the sheer number over the panties and the tie. Nopers.

      On an unrelated note, since tonight’s the S6 premiere, are you Uncles recapping RPDR this season?

      • StellaZafella

        “The Clowns Wore Prada”

        I hope TLo recap…or at least comment.

      • Let it out

        PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

      • demidaemon

        I’m so angry at DISH right now. After paying extra for Logo, they seem to have mysteriously removed the channel from my line up. I have to wait and catch it online Wednesday, as I have to work until 9 PM tomorrow and probably won’t feel like firing up the CPU after work. Grumble, grumble.

    • http://urban-gypsy.com/ Tess Danesi

      Hahaha. I have that black coat with red trim. Only mine is black pleather with purple trim and it came from Hot Topic. Trying to wrap my mind around sheer, with fur trim and camo panties. Hiddy.

    • Laura Renee

      Not a single thing I want to wear. Also, taking sheer to a new level.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Taking sheer to a new level of silliness and fugliness.

    • Sarah

      The apex of furry coats and sheer outfits has been reached. I would like us to move on now, thx.

    • SayWhaaatNow

      This is what you get when you allow 6-year-olds to design clothes. Elmo bodysuits.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Now, now, don’t insult Elmo. Elmo has more style than any of these looks

    • Alyssa

      I like the purple coat with yellow trim.

      • SugarSnap108

        I love that coat. I wonder how such a great piece snuck into this collection of fug.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      There are two or three nice prints, maybe a sweater, and the hairy red dress reminds me of the big red monster from Looney Tunes.
      Quite disappointing, coming from Prada.

    • JauntyJohn

      Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

    • Glam Dixie

      I see a whole lot of Girl that’s not your dress.

      • Lori

        I see a whole lot of Girl, that is nobody’s dress.

      • kimmeister

        Or Human, those aren’t your clothes.

    • deech_sea

      I really enjoyed this collection, especially the coats, but obviously, I’m in the minority. Granted, hardly anything would be difficult to wear successfully by anyone over 25; although, I am looking forward to seeing some of this on Chloe Sevigny.

    • KinoEye

      It’s… something. The model in the 13th photo looks like they put Twiggy in a time machine.

    • YoungSally

      How dare she make a sheared Elmo dress!!! Poor Elmo.

      Although I do have a weakness for her printed coats.

    • mixedupfiles

      Love the t-strap and mary jane sport pumps.

    • Kathy

      There’s something for everyone… in the Addams Family.

    • RescueMe23

      Bleh..

    • filmcricket

      “We skinned a Muppet” is really going to be a thing this year, isn’t it?

      LOVE the mid-century-modern prints, and the colours. Not wild about the execution in most cases.

      • MilaXX

        Muppets and bathmats.

    • R.A.

      It’s kind of… ugly? I do love the purple coat with the yellow piping. A CP entry for sure.

      • R.A.

        And reading through the comments I see I’m not the only one with love for the purple coat!

    • Nicole Little

      No, no, no, no, eww that’s an ugly yellow, dad’s sweater, no, woot! thrift shop score!, no, elmo and big bird murdered offspring, no, no, and no.

    • boweryboy

      This collection is supposedly inspired by Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant. Yet as much as I enjoy that film I’m not seeing the references. Yes, Petra wore some crazy outfits but they were fabulous in their craziness – not so much here.

      One thing I’ll give Prada, she always provides plenty to talk about with her collections. Another thing I’ll give Prada is when I love a collection, I really love it. And when I hate a collection, I hate it with the intensity of a thousand white hot suns. This falls into the latter.

      • demidaemon

        Obviously, they were trying to be economical about their fabrics.

    • http://trooperschaf.blogspot.de/ TrooperSchaf

      I hope that the clothes look better if they actually fit the wearer, but I doubt it. Oversize and a weird mix from the unusual materials challenge from PR…

    • MilaXX

      What an ugly, overdesigned collection! There are bits and pieces in here I like such as the print that is repeated in a variety of colors, but overall – yuck! That print is most successful in that mustard dress and the brown coat following it. Given that we’ve already scene Kate Mara & Rashida Jones vainly try to make this dress work, I am bracing myself for more lady celebs looking crazy in pieces from this collection.

    • hughman

      I will go on a limb here and say I love it. It subliminally reflects and mimics some of the great eccentric and powerful women in arts from the 20th century. Women like Peggy Guggenheim who had money to support great art and who lived their lives and dressed how they wanted. When women dress out of the norm on such an extravagant scale, it sends a message that they aren’t restricted by the “limits” of society. It’s power. None of these women are ones you’d particularly want to fuck with.

      • Flooby

        Interesting idea- after mulling it I don’t think it’s correct though. Dressing like this- or like Peggy G or any other noted eccentric- doesn’t connote power to me so much as “money to burn.” This kind of conspicuous consumption and total lack of care if you seem lunatic to any one who sees you is a definite F.U. to society- but I don’t think it gives one influence or any sort of power.

        • hughman

          I think in context of the era and time she lived in, the perception was different. Fabrics and materials used – such as fur – were viewed different and carried their own class and weight of money.

    • Flooby

      My eyes! A whole collection of retinal irritants. Maybe it’s time to bury my love of Prada. It actually died about 10 years ago, but I haven’t been able to let go until now.

    • crash1212

      That red hair dress….it’s a joke, right? Please tell me we won’t see Rashida Jones (or anybody else) in it!

    • Danielle

      H-I-D-D-Y you ain’t got no alibi

    • Darcy H

      That is a whole lot of fugly crazy for one collection.

    • Snailstsichr

      I want the Purple coat with the gold piping,

    • AmeliaEve

      Clown fur.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      Kidding, right?

    • Megan Kennedy

      Some of these sweaters are wearable and cute. I would wear that black and brown one in a heartbeat. But muppet coats — AND muppet dresses? Thanksbutno.

    • random_poster

      Did they hire guest designer Peter Pillotto (have no clue if that’s how to spell the name)? This is just a whole lot of ugly.

    • Kent Roby

      My computer monitor is feeling violated.

      • Sabin

        Love.

    • Clash D

      What a mixed bag. I don’t mind the color palette but the sheers are crazy and what’s with the oversized coats? They look ginormous on these stick models. Who would look good wearing them in real life? That said, most of this collection will eventually find its way into an editorial.

      • kimmeister

        The oversized coats are giving me a Max Headroom vibe.

    • Nancer

      Is Prada trolling us?

    • Lower L

      I see Underoos are now back.

    • Angh

      I used to think of Prada and think beautiful fashion-forward clothes and now I think of Prada as a house that only wants to make women look ridiculous and ugly

    • Judih1

      Love the shoes. The only garment I like is the purple coat

    • Madam Von Sassypants

      Half of the silhouettes look like they’re made for defeated linebackers. Massive slumped shoulder action.

    • lobsterlen

      Prada’s Absolutely Fabulous Collection.

    • Prudence

      The coats were fantastic.

    • TigerLaverada

      I see that, according to Prada, nothing in one’s outfit needs to coordinate at all with anything else in same outfit. Good to know.

    • MaggieMae

      Nay.

    • somebody blonde

      UGGH

    • ctvrtk

      Two words: Megan Draper.

    • quiltrx

      Guh. I want to like some of the prints, and I would if this were photographed in black and white, because I wouldn’t know how bad the colors looked together.

    • demidaemon

      All of the dresses are pretty much not great. Some of the coats might be salvageable, though.

    • FancyPhilly

      It looks a bit like my wardrobe in the late 90s (thrift store chic, natch). That is, if that wardrobe had mated with Muppets, or at least rolled around with them in an unseemly manner.

    • Trickytrisha

      Clown clothes. First thing that popped into my head.

    • Viviennne

      unfortunate choice of color, materials, pattern and silhouette…. .misogynistic

    • d4divine

      There are some great pieces, but some of the looks are completely over styled and those color blocked sherling jackets are hideous.

    • ewes_urn_aim

      I like it, but then I love a fun trip to crazy-town every now and then.

    • DuBey2

      Red furriness coat with sprigs onto hands actually made me think of a character in a Dr. Seuss book more than Elmo. Was it the Lorax? I was the kid who was freaked out, not by clowns, but by those and other drawings in the Dr. Seuss world. Oh, and the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz.
      TMI??

    • Synnae

      As usual I love the shoes/boots but I’m surprised to actually find myself liking some of the clothes. Mind you, not styled like this but there are a few very salvagable items in there, starting with that brown/silver A-line coat.
