Review of Prima Donna Spring Summer Collection 2010
After the rich reds and purples that dominate the autumn winter collections of all the major designers it’s interesting to see the development for the spring summer. Spring summer is always a much more challenging season to design for as so many of us stick to our smooth cups in nudes and white to wear under those strappy tops and white T shirts.
However spring summer isn’t really an accurate description as the first deliveries arrive on our doorstep in January with a little final flourish of opulence in time for Valentine’s day and the dying winter days. Prima Donna has produced the stunning Babel for this time of year and made it available in a seductive black with deep navy detailing and a pretty peach colour to give the story an extended life as the days begin to get longer. The Babel has a delicate cobweb design which is reminiscent of the Marie Jo Evita which was so popular a few years ago. The story is the only one for this season that has a suspender belt as part of the range. It also has a very glamorous basque with suspenders and detachable shoulder straps. The other ornate story that has a black collection is the Constantinople. This will be undoubtedly be hugely popular especially in the natural colouring. It is a natural successor to favourites such as the Ginza, Champs Elysees and Samui.
The range of simple elegant lingerie for the summer has been extended, as well as a re-colouring of the Menton in a stunning navy blue, Prima Donna has introduced a new continuity story called Perle. Perle takes popular shapes and has introduced them in larger sizes. At last there is a plunge style available in a G cup. The Perle has smooth cups with gentle padding in a full cup, plunge and strapless. There are a wide range of briefs also available, so whether you are a shorts or brief lover there is something to you. It is also the first time control briefs have been included in a continuity collection. Plums Lingerie hasn’t had their delivery of these yet so it will be interesting to see how much suck in power they really have. It will have to be substantial to compete with the Miracle Suit range.
If you want to have something a little more decadent to add to your lingerie drawer both the Kensington and Edoras have been re-coloured for the summer. Both these stories have been sell outs and the hot pink Kensington adds a bit of heat to the pretty muted pastels while the aqua blue Edoras has a cool elegance. Blue bras seem to be a tricky sell in comparison to the sure fire purples and pinks so it is interesting that Prima Donna has introduce a sky blue in the Alexandrie story.
There no doubt that the Alexandrie is stunningly pretty and the embellished straps are perfect for a subtle little flash under a strappy top. I would expect that white will be the clear winner in the summer followed by the blue. As the delivery date for this collection is in February Plums Lingerie has opted for the blue to add a flash of freshness to the drawers. It can be easy to stick with white in summer but where’s the fun in that?
This collection is muted in comparison to the strong colours from the Autumn Winter but the contrast will be refreshing to the loyal Prima Donna customer and the whole seasons collection is very commercial. There isn’t one range that I don’t think would not be taken up. It appears that some of the riskier colourings have found their home in the new Prima Donna Twist range. It is really refreshing to see the new Prima Donna collections arrive. It means the longest darkest days of winter are behind us and the summer is on it’s way.

Question by Vanilla Bear: Readers/Writers: Do you think this part of my novel is funny?
As soon as he entered the church, he noticed Leslie standing alone by the pews, a Bible in her hands. He scowled, shoving his hands further into his pockets. The psychotic man-woman, or so he and his brother liked to call her, made his life a living hell when he was a child. She had told on him when he and Chris stuck a packet of Skittles in the microwave and when they tied their mother’s favorite laced bra to a balloon and let it fly away. Plus, she had pushed him down the stairs when he was nine, but every time he told his father, he wouldn’t believe him. Whenever he saw her, he immediately thought back to those times in his childhood and, once again, vowed to get some kind of revenge on her.
Zach began to walk over to her, carefully maneuvering himself past the crowd of people. He was still on a look out for Uncle Mark. If that crazy bastard came anywhere near him, he would call the cops. Leslie looked over and saw him, but all she did was give the same, evil grin she used to give him when he was little. Why did his father have to marry a nutcase and why did she have to have a daughter that was even crazier than her?
“Reilly,” she started with her manly voice. “I didn’t think you’d actually show up. Chris said you’ve been having some mental problems. Are all of the one-night stands and nobody loving you back starting to get to you?”
What the hell? He sneered and let out a small, pity laugh. She had tried to be humorous when they were younger and he was just getting into comedy, but she was never successful. From age nine until he was eighteen, he endured hours of trying to convince her that she wasn’t funny, but he always failed.
“I’ll just take this from you,” he said as he took the Bible from her overly hairy hands. “I know how contact with Holy stuff makes your skin burn.” Zach smiled as she flipped him the bird and stormed off like a prima donna, even though she was far from that. “Work it, Lesbetron,” he whispered as he watched her hips shake. He twisted his face in disgust and just walked away from that scene.
– Just so you know, Zach is a generally nice guy, but he strongly dislikes Leslie because of what she did to him in their childhood.
* “Lesbetron” has nothing to do with Leslie being a lesbian, which she isn’t even one. It’s just a nickname that Zach and his brother gave her when she was a kid. *
Zach had a run-in with his Uncle Mark a few chapters before this part, so I wanted to mention it so his role in the story doesn’t die out.
I don’t care if you don’t think it’s funny, but please tell me why it isn’t and how I can fix it to make it better. I know that it isn’t going to be humorous to everyone, but I am hoping that at least a few people will get a little chuckle out of it.
Do you think this part of my story is funny? If not, then why and how can I make it funny?
Thanks! I really appreciate it!

With money to spend, should the Hawks spend it on Dwight?
Prima Donna – NO! Link; Report this comment. BC. July 3rd, 2012 5:02 pm. Dwight would be the biggest star in Atlanta since Vick. Not sure why he is so against Atlanta – especially since he is from here. Atlanta gets a bad rep as a sports town but this …
