Here at The Shophound, we have always joked that, in Manhattan, people are so blasé that a guy can walk down the street in a ballet tutu without anyone anyone taking much notice. We have never actually said it directly to Miuccia Prada, but she, apparently, is trying to prove that point with her Fall 2008 men's show. Generally, we understand that it's not always fair to judge a collection on internet photos, but we're going to do it anyway because, in this case, we just can't resist. Typically, whenever Prada shows get kooky, you can rest assured that the boutiques will have plenty of classic, easy to wear clothes and shoes on hand to buy. In this show, however, precious double collars, tiny ruffled overskirts, back-buttoning silk blouses, cropped halter tops and some disturbing, thong-y undergarment worn over the shirt but halfway under the pants give a clear message of "Don't try this at home," or better yet, "Try this only at home".
This is only the frst men's show we have looked at. If this is any indication of things to come, it should be very entertaining.
