Prada Looks to Versatile, Vibrant Clothes of the Aughts for Its SS20 Collection
The ’20s, ’70s and ’90s play a major role in the new range.
Prada‘s Spring/Summer 2020 runway show was presented at the Fondazione Prada Deposito today during Milan Fashion Week. The expansive, glowing space designed by AMO set the precedence for the vibrant collection. Showgoers entered the presentation by walking up a stepped platform that acted as a balcony overlooking the entire hall.
For the colorful range that featured 51 looks, “purity,” “directness” and “instinct” were the guiding lights. This notion was driven forward by the idea that the collection would be “about the power of women over clothing,” according to the fashion house’s official press release. Pulling from past decades such as the ’20s, ’70s and ’90s, the collection is filled with casual outerwear, dresses and blouses.
The first half of the collection is marked by well-structured blazers and bottoms in addition to whimsical tops, while the latter half featured a robust selection of leather suiting options, vacation-ready separates and lavish daywear. Brocade and gold are also distinct accents seen throughout the lineup which provide hits of contrast. Accessories were kept minimalistic and arrived in the form of metallic sandals, platform loafers and leather shoulder bags.
In total, lead creative officer Miuccia Prada expertly mixes and matches aesthetics which makes for a cohesive collection. Each look comes across as “archetypal and self-referential,” as referenced in the press release. Key fabrics utilized throughout the lineup include kid mohair, fine ribbed knit and embroidered leather.
