Prada's Spring/Summer 2010 runway show was the best Miuccia has presented in a long while, with sleek, subtle lines and sumptuous tropical prints that just will you to go on holiday. Far more youthful (as epitomised by styling the models with their hair swept into bunches), the latest collection showcases a far more practical and effervescent side to Prada than we have become used to. Miuccia Prada's pieces, although not always instantly awe-inspiring on the catwalk like the work of McQueen or Galliano, are consistently, season after season, worn on the red carpet; for me this is the domain in which the clothes truly come to life. I can't wait to see how well the label's latest creations translate to this arena, and who will be amongst the first to wear Miuccia's latest designs (although my money's definitely on Prada devotee and current toast of Hollywood Carey Mulligan).
