Small epaulets were sewn on the kind of warm jacket that used to be called a car coat at Prada, and sheer lilac, lime and mustard evening dresses were as revealing as anything at Versace's show. But there the similarities ended. Remember the hair clue? At Prada, the models hid theirs in scruffy little chignons. Under transparent dresses they wore woolly tights that looked about as sexy as a flannel granny gown.
Except for those nightgown-like dresses, some pony skin coats and three wonderfully shapely wool dresses, each in orange, camel or purple, Miuccia Prada has continued the thrift-shop look. New high-heeled Mary Jane's with flowers carved into antiqued brown leather completed the retro picture characterized by diner upholstery prints and flared leg pants.
