For spring 09 we find madam Miuccia in typically playful mood recreating basics in exaggerated and shrunken proportions. The outdoor house coat was the best example.
Prada says she “just changed the proportions” on this, her “most mainstream” collection. Indeed, beyond the playful shapes the inspiration was commercially driven with easy to wear shirts, blousons and knits
Radically re-worked proportions injected plenty of quirkiness – dress-length polos, toreador jackets, three-quarter length sleeves, even asymmetric T-shirt hems that swung high at the front to reveal male midriff.
Treated tailoring and plastic outerwear kept the shine content high. Oh, and latex belts, anyone?
While the silhouette was toyed with the colours stayed pretty serious with tan brown, midnight blue, black and olive.
