So, here's the Prada spring 2011 show we've been hearing so much about—pretty much non-stop since the first model swanned down the runway in Milan yesterday. It's been a while (of course, we haven't yet seen Paris fashion week) since the industry has seemed so instantly excited about a collection. calls it a collection to add to Miuccia Prada's "pantheon of greats":

Fishing around for an alternative to "fresh," she herself came up with "brave, bold, and obvious"—that last one a typical head-spinner. Maybe there was something obvious in the sheer uplift of the solid blocks of primary color; the jungle prints and striped sombreros; the straightforward summery-ness of a spaghetti-strapped, ruffle-hemmed dress striped in orange and pink. But there was also more than enough of Prada's twisty-ness to boost this collection into her already chock-full pantheon of greats.
