Miuccia Prada’s fall/winter 2017 men’s and women’s show delivered a seventy-esque collection. Heavy fabrics and mustard and carrot hues inform a jacketed collection topped with caps. Leather coats with grommets, exposed stitching, and fur trim were heavy features on three-quarter length skirts, jackets, handbags, and hats. Heavy accessories like knit scarves and totems slung on chains accompanied corduroys and button-down shirts. The Prada fall collection is a return to the simple. Mrs. Prada shared:
“…the main sentiment that I had is going from bigness to smallness; from the big deal of the installation—big architecture and construction—the big deal of fashion, the big deal of art, the big deal of everything. And to go opposite. More human, more simple, more real . . . the desire for reality, humanity, and simpleness.”
…a much needed turn as everything in the world has gone complicated.
It is a winter collection and the practical just got the Miuccia treatment…
