Prada’s head designer, Miuccia Prada has indeed created a collection which is unique yet incredibly chic. The subversive and rebellious collection, which was presented the Men’s Fashion Week in Milan, presents large unusual prints and mixed fabrics and textures in sleek cuts. Some of the examples of prints include a large eye, rockets, rabbits, race cars, and both thin and thick stripes. These prints were sometimes overlapping each other, and were carefully layered on to different fabrics which came together to create mixed textures in one outfit. Some textures were knitted and soft, whilst others were dark such as snakeskin. Some parts of the collection also had a seemingly 80s feel to it, with such retro prints and sparkly textures reminiscent of an 80s disco. Accessories were also incredibly interesting, with long, slim earrings and layered socks. Shoes had similar retro-style designs to the clothing, with some pairs featuring lightning strikes and others featuring colourful comic-style arrows. Handbags and clutches were similar. Some featured arrow designs whilst others had a snakeskin pattern on them. The metal chains on these bags and clutches added to the theme of blending textures and patterns in the collection. Being the epitome of high fashion, this Prada collection did not fail to please. The collection sets a new rebellious trend of its own, which acts as a rendezvous with the era of rebellious punk rock with hints of disco glam. Prada’s collection steps away from the sophisticated collections which have been seen in other cruise shows, yet maintains a sense of this sophistication in its silhouettes and cuts. The prints, colours and textures, which would have otherwise be considered mismatched are fused together well due to the layering and creativity in shaping each layer. The look created is effortlessly rebellious, very artistic and wearable in numerous different combinations.
