Prada celebrates ‘women’s history’ at Milan Fashion Week show
Italian fashion brand Prada offered sheer vest-like dresses and embellished coats for women’s wardrobes next winter at its Milan fashion show Thursday, showcasing a collection its creators have described as focusing on “women’s history”.
With a front row that included reality TV star Kim Kardashian staring at her sister Kendall Jenner on the catwalk, the presentation of the show took place on the second day of Milan Fashion Week, which mainly hosts in-person shows – rather than digital presentations – this season.
Designers Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons said they continued a theme of stripping down looks from previous collections for the Fall/Winter 2022 line, called “An Ideology of Prada”.
These included white tank tops worn with two-tone skirts and see-through sheer dresses. Tailored blazers had broad shoulders while coats featured rounded necklines. Some coats had chains on the neck or feathers on the sleeves.
“This collection is about the history of women, the history of people, not the history of fashion,” Miuccia Prada said in her notes.
The models also wore matching jackets and skirts in dark gray and black, elongated, belted bomber jackets adorned with glittering flowers and printed jumpers paired with polo necks.
“Valuing history means we value the history of Prada — I’m thinking of groundbreaking moments in Prada’s history, and we echo them here,” Simons said.
“There are never direct recreations, but there is a reflection of something you know, a language of Prada. And those moments helped define our idea of beauty today, which we are in the process of to redefine.
Veteran designer Giorgio Armani returned to the catwalk to showcase his latest Emporio Armani line, after canceling his menswear and couture shows in January due to a spike in COVID-19 infections in Europe.
Both male and female models wore all-grey outfits – trouser suits, cozy knits, tailored jackets as well as mountain wear, with models carrying skis and snowboards.
Touches of green and blush appear on women’s tops, velvet pants and sweaters printed with wavy patterns, while for the evening, there are dresses with large sequins. The shirts had large bows.
Armani will host a show for its mainline Giorgio Armani on Sunday.
