Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Collection Report -

Mi­uc­cia Prada’s latest was a con­tem­pla­tion on fem­i­nin­ity, in a lay­er­ing of ideas. Her in­ter­pre­ta­tion of beauty was pri­mar­ily ex­pressed in menswear – dou­ble-breasted blaz­ers and suits – but rein­vented in tra­di­tion­ally girl­ish pas­tels. Or­na­men­tal pieces on men's uni­forms, such as epaulettes, were trans­formed into gi­ant bows on princess dresses. She also ex­plored the idea of real and fake, con­struct­ing a fan­tasy world

(the set was pow­der-hued boxes; the sound­track from Dis­ney’s ‘Fan­ta­sia’) filled with real-life clothes. Tweeds were real or printed on – you couldn’t tell which was which when the clothes zoomed past – and the new molec­u­lar print was a blown-up im­age of the fol­li­cles on ostrich skin. Mean­while, real ostrich leather was used on coats, jack­ets and dresses, while crocodile was ap­pro­pri­ated for bags and

gloves rem­i­nis­cent of the Fifties.
