Dominated by woollen tailoring, 1940s inspired outerwear and low-cut V-neck dresses and tops, Prada presented a conservative collection with few silhouettes for buyers to select from. A palette of forest shades was punctuated by rusty tones in velvet, sequined floral embellishments, and leather pieces.
Prada kept her silhouettes simple and uncluttered drawing from a Wartime archive characterised by a broad lapelled double-breasted tailoring block. Standout styles included a Raglan sleeved oversized jacket with side pleated matching knee-length skirt, and a double-breasted coat with slouched shoulders; both styles were presented in leather and wool. While Prada’s felt wool hot-pants may challenge buyers its sexy pencil skirts and slash front tops and dresses are likely to drive sales.
