And "whimsy" (along with "eye candy") is the best possible description for Agatha Ruiz de la Prada's surrealist-inspired Fall 2009 collection, presented in Milan.
Agatha de la Ruiz Prada has received several awards in Spain including the Arts Gold Medal Award by the Ministry of Culture for bringing Spanish fashion and culture to other countries. She's known for her brightly colored designs with her signature childlike motifs of moons, stars, suns, and hearts. She also designs furniture, houseware, and clothes for men and children. She has stores in several cities in Spain, Milan, Paris and New York.
Is this stuff particularly wearable? No, but it's fun and let's face it, sometimes the fashion industry really has a stick up its ass, so kudos to her for being so joyous about it.
