Did Prada Catch The Fever For Cali Kustom Kulture?

prada-spring
Dresses ablaze with red-hot flames, and high-waisted skirts featuring a set of Hot Wheels got our West Coast hearts a-pumpin' at the Prada spring '12 presentation this past weekend. The retro feel, and obvious love for fine automotives, also had the L.A. Times wondering just how close Milan fashion is to our own So-Cal vintage, Rockabilly stylings of Kustom Kulture and Hollywood hotrods. Besides the printed fabrics of metal and auto frames, Miuccia also framed the body in seriously sexy feminine pieces that could bring out the pin-up in any girl. So, what's the verdict? Is Prada spring '12 totally riding Route 66 into the sunset, or are we just California dreaming? (L.A. Times)
