Milan: Rockabilly graphics and floral motifs put a sweet spin on Prada’s sophisticated offerings this season; race cars and exhaust-flames playfully decorated items ranging from accordion skirts to bandeaus, while floral appliqués and lace made for charmingly girlish outerwear. Ultra-glam pinup suits were shown alone, as well as with matching jacket, coat and overskirt accompaniments, while oversized costume jewelry and rhinestone embellishment added glitzy flash. Luxe silks and leathers and occasional demure silhouettes balanced all the kitsch. –Whitney Kessler
