For fall 2021, Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada’s second collaboration as co-creative directors “explores the space that exists between conventional polar opposites.”
We wanted the space to physically almost relate very much to the clothes and to the intentions we had with the collection, Simons said in a post-show discussion. You know there is no public, added Prada. You can concentrate more on what you want to say and sort of create an atmosphere. I think it’s more difficult to do it without people, actually. Before it was a promenade. Now, it’s the chance to not only present pieces of clothing, but to create the reality in which they exist.
Reflecting Prada’s words, the collection was filled with crisp, monochromatic suiting separates over colorful, printed second-skin tops and leggings; flowy, calf-skimming dresses and skirts paired with tight graphic turtlenecks and heavy platform shoes made for stomping; as well as a plethora of dresses, echoing ’20s silhouettes, which were enriched with knitted jacquard inserts in a variety of multicolored motifs.
The accessories, as always, are a highlight. The brand continues to bank on the signature inverted triangle logo motif splashing it across earrings, on the neck of dresses, to cuff bags to gloves.
Shoes were splashed with vivid prints, and simple crossbody bags were exchanged for oversized clutches and bags both in swirled, psychedelic prints and the soft furry texture that anchored much of the collection. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
