MILAN (Reuters) – Italian fashion house Prada reworked its classic wardrobe for fall at Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, with designers Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons saying they were inspired by the idea of change and transformation.
In a video shared online as part of the virtual Milan Fashion Week, models are dressed in layers in various prints and colors as part of the fall / winter 2021-2022 collection.
Prada and Simons, who joined the brand as co-creative directors last year, featured a tight jacquard knit bodysuit in a mixed pattern, which was made to appear as a second skin.
The dark blue and gray striped suit was redesigned as a ruffled short-sleeved jacket worn with a matching skirt or ankle-length trousers.
Models, walking between rooms with marble floors or faux fur, wear coats of bright colors, decorated with sparkling paillettes or with exaggerated sleeves.
Outerwear included faux fur wrapping, re-nylon and sequins, and the oversized, loose bomber jacket. Loose dresses and mostly dark colors.
For the evening there is a black jumpsuit and a long black dress with a patterned collar. The colorful gloves have a small zip wallet on the front.
“In this collection we play with classic ideas – we subvert them, we transform them,” Prada said in a statement.
“There’s a lot more contrast in this collection – retro and futuristic, embellished and minimal, sporting and elegant – because we put them together, put them together, created something that looked new,” added Simons.
Milan Fashion Week, which starts on Wednesday and runs until March 1, is a virtual event this season due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Major Italian fashion names like Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino share videos on digital platforms.
