Prada’s Spring Line

Next Previous

The Prada 2011 Spring/Summer thrives off the concept of monkey business. The couture line of monkey and banana peel panels caused New York Magazine to refer to the line as "The Chiquita Banana Moment," but the look isn’t intended to be cartoonish. "Baroque monkeys probably appeal less to Ms. Prada’s sense of humor than to her appreciation of history, and her way of bringing it forward in fashion," said The New York Times’ fashion critic Cathy Horyn. Actress Eva Mendes and rapper-turned-fashion icon Kanye West have both sported the chic monkey line, complete with vibrant colors and jungle foliage. We’ve come a long way from George of the Jungle’s loincloth.
