How very normal - and how very Prada - this collection was.
Or perhaps more hyperreal, as Miuccia Prada embarked on a quest to create the ultimate set of menswear classics. Stripped almost entirely of decoration, the collection was precise and calm but with an oddness that the best Prada collections have.
The banality was broken by peculiar shirt collars beneath knits, small gingham and checked patterns, interesting cropped proportions and pocket placement and the requisite right-wrong Prada shoe.
In short It was the sort of collection that will look good in stores, but the cut of the jackets and unusual styling may put the ordinary shopper off parting with their cash. Actually, probably not.
