Reminiscing Again: Prada S/S 08 & James Jean

Spring Summer 2008 was clearly and inspiring season for me, as I recently did a reminiscent post about Dolce & Gabanna's S/S '08 show. The Prada 'Trembled Blossoms' collection featured billowy skirts, gingham prints and insane floral sculptured heels - a fashion fairy tale with a dark, moody undertone.
The main selling point of this collection was the iconic illustrations by James Jean, which were somewhat accidentally featured on the clothes and as the backdrop to the campaigns, after he had drawn multiple wallpaper designs for Prada stores.
I've gathered a mix of campaign and runway shots, which you all will probably be familiar with my now due to the collection's popularity, but be sure to check out the video animation and hear James discussing his work with Prada at the end of the post, and Click Here for more of the outstanding James Jean's work.


























I would still pay good money for one of those fairy printed bags. I have scoured around for one on numerous occasions despite not even having the money for one...
