It’s Thanksgiving, I know – I ought to be snuggled up in a wooly jumper making an apple pie and planning my Christmas shopping list. But instead I’m sitting here dreaming about spring and patching together a collage consisting of the Beverly Hillbillies and cacti. Random how these things happen. I don’t even care though (soon I’ll swap into holiday mode and bake my turkey etc etc ec).
I can’t help but feel quite captivated by the classic 1950s imagery that inspired these collections. Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and Thunderbirds for Prada. Flames, Santa Fe and Elly May Clampett for Scott. It’s a sort-of nod to all things Americana, in an exaggerated surreal form. Currently at the top of my ss12 wish list are those platformed saddle shoes by Jeremy Scott and the Prada sunglasses that Anna Dello Russo has already been strutting around in (swooon).
