A sinister opening ushered in a simple, stark black wardrobe with a no-fuss, modernist approach to menswear. High fastening six-showing db jackets were worn with db overcoats and engineered seams gave the silhouette a clean flow with rounded shoulders declaring Miuccia Prada’s technical virtuosity. The black softened slightly to make way for mid- and dove grey suiting. Stern stuff from Prada in these uncertain times.
It was all about simplicity with unnecessary detailing culled for most of the show, where it did appear it took the form of multi-studded shirts and trousers. Coats though were collarless, pullovers in crew and V-necks were stark black, db suiting was grey and boxy while vintage leather man-bags added a commercial varnish.
