Who doesn't love a cool fruit salad on a burning hot summer day? Like the sweetness of an apple, the candy taste of an orange? Well, this season fruits will be everywhere, not just on your salad bowl. Designers have gone head over heels for a fruit extravaganza and given us plenty of choice. So, no matter what your fancy is, jump into the tutti frutti trend!
Miu Miu has gone for an apple-licious look in its 2011 resort collection. Fun and insolent, the collection features a retro apple print (with a delicious 70's feel) in dresses, palazzo pants and shirts...
... and the accessories are apple-licious too! They are all about plexi long necklaces, earrings and bracelets which far from causing an apple overdose give the collection a playful edge.
For those who are into sweet and sour flavours, Moschino Cheap and Chic has created a luscious lemon print. Sprinkled over cocktail dresses and floating skirts, it has an unexpected kind of femininity to it.
Stella McCartney has gone for citrus too, in a more baroque way reminiscing of Flemish still-life paintings. Mixing oranges, grapefruit and lemons, the print is truly scrumptious.
But the star of the season is, without the shade of a doubt, Prada's banana print. Cleverly mixing inspirations that go from the amazing Joséphine Baker to rockabilly style, Miuccia's bananas are the most covetable item of the summer; and they come in all kinds of versions too.
Shirts and skirts, yellow and green...
There is even a nail version of Prada's print, created by the fabulous WAH nails salon in London (which, if you haven't visited yet, you absolutely need to check out).
Go ahead and indulge in this tropical fruity deliciousness all through the season... this summer is all about tutti frutti fun in the sun!
