it might be the time to start taking lonely walks on rainy nights:

It is a sad, sad day when you like a designer's resort collection better than their Ready to Wear.Prada Resort 2010Prada RTW Spring 2010

I mean...the more I look at Spring the more I like it, but Prada's resort was kind of AMAZING, and the Spring collection looked more Resort-y than most Resort collections from any designer (looks 16-20, anyone? bueller?) I mean, the resort made me want that diarrhea colored backdrop the color of my bedroom walls! But the idea for the Spring collection was very interesting, and the Copa Cabana prints I am starting to think are a little awesome, like the Balenciaga spandex top with the jungle print that looks like it would be on a 500-piece puzzle box? At least they're resort prints that are beachy and not Jewish-grandpa-living-in-Boca-Raton?

I am so torn. I have some thinking to do.

In the words of that guy from Zoombinis for whom you must make pizza, Something Is Not Right.

That line about 'Jewish-grandpa-living-in-Boca-Raton' was hilarious! I don't give a darn about the naysayers, Tavi, they're just jealous. You're witty, your grammar is amazing for your age, and you are fashion wise. You could be doing worse with your free time, instead you spend it going after your passion! From a 23 year old fashionista to a 13 year old one, keep on rockin'!

I love the first comment and completely concur!

I totally agree....just stay true to yourself...if you think the resort line is better don't try and fight it, just go with your gut instinct

Madeleine said...

Yep, their resort wear is way better than their ready to wear collection this year. The colors pop and the clothes are more interesting.

Anna said...

In regards to the first image of the Resort collection:
LOOK at that skirt!

The whole collection has hints of The Brady Bunch + old bathroom wallpaper and shaggy carpet.

Anna said...

P.S. I yearn to buy some of those skirts.

Lexi said...

Yes, resort was so good. I love those two tone shirts.

PYB said...

i just found out about you, and i think your fashion sense is wonderfully weird! it's really is. i love how you put together random things that people would just throw out. you are a true fashion genius.

I was pretty disappointed in the Prada ready to wear, but I was really looking forward to it which I guess made it worse for me.

olivias-pizzaz said...

yea your right I did not realise this until you put the images by eachother the resort collection was so much better xx

lescrocodiles said...

Wikifashion said...

Gorgeous collection!! Thanks for the pics :)

SO. said...

i love he prada resort collection. yayaya it may be sad but if it good, then hell with it.

s_d said...

i did not like the RTW collection at all
and it may just be that i have to grow to like it
but the prints drove me up a wall
i had to force myself to click through the whole collection
frankly, i was left more than a little dissapointed

hannahlizabeth said...

i quite liked the ready to wear but i agree that it definitely wasn't the most interesting - i just like the long cycle shorts mainly but i've seen others do them way better xx

Malea said...

Me again. I really need to get something done in my home today. But I've just come upon your blog. Seriously. 13? I hope your parents adore you. Cause I'd adopt you in a half of a second. :)
Yeh, me likes the color on the resort stuff too. But then again, I'm more of a resort kind of girl.

redpencil said...

That middle resort look bottoms look diaperish.

Stylish Goddess said...

Maybe because of the economic crisis or just the fashion mood of the moment, whatever the reasons are,it looks like those designs were pretty boring for this season.

Charlotte Lundell said...

I'm uninspired by both Resort and RTW... Resort looks like home sewing from the 50's (but I do like the colors).

Emily said...

I love zoombinis and know exactly what you're talking about...! "something is not right!"

sofiasophie said...

hilarious!

I am not very found of Prada, just becauseI have the feeling they don't dress real people, but the resort look like very very interresting; Love the colors and prints.

lisa said...

the resort collection looks amazing. i think the shoes in the spring collection really stole the show. little jewel dangling ornaments. amazing!

Thanks for posting!

reyanj said...

Bwahahaha Zoombinis. First time comment and that's all I can think of to say, but I want to mention that I think you're incredible!

Sabrina Suburbia said...

Okay, could you get any cooler?! After seeing your picture in numerous copies of my weekly magazines (Grazia, Sunday Times Style, NME...well, you weren't in the last one) I checked to see what everyone was on about. Jealous much!! I'm fifteen year old British girl living near London, and I think your style is so awesome. Also can't believe you met Alexander Wang! I want your life xoxo

I was rather looking forward to the Prada collection too

B a la Moda said...

HAHAHA... Nice report. Prada is amazing and right the resort collection looks really appealing.

I normally am a huge prada fan, but I don't think spring 2010 was as special as I thought it would be. Especially in the shoe department. I just thought they were boring, and I expected so much more! Too stripper-esque with the clear heels and glass danglies.

The Resort though? fabulous. I agree.

Isabel said...

I'd say they're both pretty boss. I could really use a gunmetal coat right about now.

la zitella illetterata said...

It seems like she's looking back at her 90's work, while the resort collection was more experimental in shapes and mixing it all up. But what upsets me is the feeling of something too much Marni-like (if we don't consider the fact that Marni built its style on Prada's past looks).
On the other hand, we all know that Miuccia gives her best with the fall/winter collection, so for now just let's be patient and try not to think about those awful plexi-sandals...

ThatTeen said...

I like colour so the resort kinda screams, "love me". xo

∆JS∆ said...

i liked the ready to wear just as much. it's like wearing thin sheet of metal and the crystal skirts! anyone else it would have looked tacky town.

i think amazing she can split her styles so distinctly.

Sprinkle M. said...

OHMYGOD I loved that game! Zoombini's?! AHHH! That pizza level took me so long to figure out as a youngin.... I really want to play it now...

Back to fashion. I agree with you 100%. Not their best work.
xoxo

Emily said...

I completely agree! Prada totally disappointed me...

josephine said...

the hair/makeup in the rtw makes me want to vomit a little bit, personally

Jess said...

Ahahah, I love that line from Zoombinis. I totally forgot about it! You're hilarious.

Lizz said...

OH MY GOD I LOVE ZOOMBINIS!!!
i also really like the prada RTW. More than the resort collection.

Caitlin said...

Oh my heavens I just died at the Zoombini reference.
YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS

lepetitececile said...

Irina Khanova said...

diarrhea colored walls... haha... you've got humour, Tavi!

LadyGaga said...

omg, you are awesome! love the pictures. what is your favorite spring collection. So far for me its Jason Wu and Michael Kors. I have to check Zac Posen and the Italian designers.

Earthquake said...

Lmao. The RTW is flipping hideous.! The resort is kind of dope though. Nice work Tavi. Thumbs Up.! Ok...Bye.

Hazel said...

Shoes that tie always hurt me. No pain no gain?
