Miuccia Prada takes us back to the 70s
Miuccia Prada has once again infused its new work with the seventies feel that was evident in its 2014-15 Autumn/Winter collection “Act 2”, inspired by the choreographer Pina Bausch, the artist Joseph Beuys and the film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
The company unveiled its spring/summer collection at Milan Fashion Week. It makes a clear commitment to leather in whisky and black shades, crepe and cotton dresses, tube skirts, clogs and knee high stockings.
On this occasion, the fashion house has once again dazzled thanks to its select fur work on coats with deep V-neck coats, the use of the patchwork technique and frayed garments as a tribute to handcrafted creations. The Italian company’s range includes flower prints that contrast with thicker fabrics, more suited for winter.
On catwalks, sandals with socks have given way to clogs with stockings.
Knee high stockings have tended to be diametrically opposed to aesthetic norms, however Prada is presenting customised stockings with stitching, prints and lacework that make them the ideal accessory for a street-style look.
Made-up for the catwalk
Prada is also setting trends when it comes to make-up. The looks of Prada models attracted attention on the catwalks due to their eyeliner. A thick line went from the centre of the eyelid to the brow, deviating from the standard line above the upper lashes. Pure and simple reinvention.
