“Not too many words, it’s not a serious show,” Miuccia Prada said, after the debut of Prada Resort ’19. “It’s a kind of fantasy of reality.” What reality that may be could be explained through pared-down silhouettes, which brought to mind Mrs Prada’s earlier collections from the ’90s, like the Spring/ Summer ’97 collection, where diaphanous organzas and tulles were tailored into maxi sheath dresses and slips. Today, those pieces are embellished, layered, and paired with brocade minis or oversized trapper hats. Consider this minimalism for the Insta-generation.
