Milano: Prada Spring/Summer 2011 Collection

Milano: Prada Spring/Summer 2011.  The Prada Spring Summer 2011 collection was bright and happy. Stripes in DayGlo colors, Hawaiian cut shirts, tropical and banana prints evoking Harry Belafonte, Josephine Baker and the Caribbean, were accessorized with fox fur stoles in bright colors and stripes.
