Get your Italian fashion fix with Prada’s Spring 2012 campaign. Retro-inspired, this line plays around with prints that look like they’re from an era in time long ago. The shapes and silhouettes of the dresses, skirts, and little one-piece suit are from a memory in time in which many of us probably never experienced first-hand, but the power of trend recycling and bringing back styles that once dominated a decade are enough for many of us to be able to feel the power of fashion and how it transforms as society and culture does.

They’re high-waisted, fitted, and tend to bump out right at the thighs, giving you a great shape. Some are adorned with pleats while others with ruffles and some are perfect for transitioning from day to evening. It’s something different and it is a bit early to be thinking about skirts, but keep it on the back burner for when the season comes about.
