Clever Couture: Prada from catwalk to highstreet
Published 15/07/2011 | 05:00
There's something about high summer that makes us all a little braver.
Pins that you wouldn't dare bare in winter suddenly find themselves in a pair of silk hot pants, or your 'sea of black' wardrobe gets a sudden jolt of tangerine.
Zesty shades of orange ran riot on the catwalk this season, with everyone from Calvin Klein, Etro and MaxMara splashing out. Prada opened their show with this minimal orange dress. Its broad sleeves and clean V-neck make it an edgy alternative to the classic shift.
If you're not convinced by a whole outfit in this flaming hot hue, drop it into your look by way of a blazingly cool accessory. Taste the trend with Topshop's orange and gold T-bar sandals or the luxe leather Harris satchel by Asos White.
