All the Buzz in Fash­ion

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Mi­uc­cia Prada typ­i­cally in­cludes her women’s cruise looks in her men’s shows. Last year, how­ever, she broke tra­di­tion by de­but­ing a ded­i­cated show on the up­per floors of Mi­lan’s Gal­le­ria Vit­to­rio Emanuele II. For the 2019 cruise sea­son, the Ital­ian de­signer crossed over to New York for a sopho­more stag­ing within the com­pany’s Her­zog & de Meu­ron-de­signed Amer­i­can head­quar­ters. On a bar­ren floor where views of the city greet the eyes through tinted win­dows, Prada re­vis­ited the ’90s and kept the sil­hou­ettes lean. Ribbed polo shirts were worn with pants that sat low on the waist, while bro­cades were con­trasted with geo­met­ric pat­terns for a full-on “ugly chic” ef­fect. Else­where, padded trap­per hats gave the col­lec­tion its ath­letic thrust. In re­cent years, the hype sur­round­ing the cruise show cir­cuit has been privy only to a se­lect group; here, Prada’s pre­sen­ta­tion was broad­casted live on screens plas­tered across Times Square for passers-by be­low to en­joy.
