Prada Intuition

In the fashion world, Prada is said to be the most prominent example of a new form of inward-directed luxury. While in decades past luxury was explicitly displayed, today an understated luxury is sought.
This woman whom we met yesterday exemplifies the very characteristics we all love in Miuccia Prada, the label’s visionary designer. Ari and I love her array of subtle style references: Safari hat and jacket signify the luxury of travel while a surprising combination of prints showcases her confidence to play with clothes. It’s her style intuition that reminds me most of Miuccia, who often shows off the looks she designs far better than any of the models on her runway.
It’s her life experience and understanding of inward-luxury (see Monday’s interview with Debra and MaryAnn) that bring the clothes to life.
Being Italian has something to do with it, we’re sure. But either way…we’ll be Miu Miu to this lady’s Prada any day of the week!
  • I don't visit your blog very often, but every time I do I come away completely thrilled with life and full of inspiration. All of the ladies and gentlemen you feature have incredible style and are totally confident with their look and I want to be like all of them. This lady is no exception. Thank you!

  • I never used to be a huge fan of Prada but recently I've really been enjoying their collections, especially Autumn/Winter 2010! And I just bought some very nice Prada sunglasses when I was in Italy. Miu Miu is totally another level though – LOVE those cat/naked lady prints 🙂



    I await your post with excitement. I am thrill when I see them coming fresher every time. What an inspiration.
    Muchas, muchas gracias!!!

  • She is fabulous! Love the relaxed yet elegant pose, too.

  • I too am a fan of Miuccia, her understated, chic coolness. This woman has it too, you can tell she gets it, lives it. I love it!
