AGAINST THE GRAIN

Hong Kong Tatler - - Milan -

PRADA The sur­prise at the Prada show wasn't just the vi­o­let sand dunes act­ing as the col­lec­tion’s back­drop, but also the re­turn of Aus­tralian model Gemma Ward (be­low right), who opened pro­ceed­ings af­ter al­most a decade away from the in­dus­try. For open­ers, Mi­uc­cia Prada ex­per­i­mented with fab­rics in­clud­ing a va­ri­ety of luxe bro­cades and raw cot­ton, as­sem­bled in patch­work form on top-stitched coats and dresses that stopped right above the knee. Avi­a­tor-shaped sun­glasses were wrapped in leather (also top-stitched) and we all know Mi­uc­cia's ever-present ob­ses­sion with chunky shoes—wooden clogs were reimag­ined as Mary Janes and mid-calf boots.
