One of Milan Fashion Week‘s most anticipated shows, Prada has presented its Fall/Winter 2020 collection at the brand’s Fondazione, located just outside the city. If anyone can seamlessly meld the utilitarian with the eccentric and off-beat, it’s Miuccia Prada. Indeed, the designer didn’t disappoint — FW20 is filled with functional silhouettes and artful detailing, presenting a multipurpose wardrobe for today’s working woman.
The collection starts out with a series of jackets and coats cinched at the waist with belts featuring handy kiss-lock boxes at the buckle. The range then proceeds into tweed suiting and tweed-knit sweaters worn over sharp button downs affixed with colorful ties. Venturing from the realm of office-wear into something lighter, sheer, floral-embroidered dresses are layered over sporty, ribbed leggings and bralettes rendered in bright yellow and lavender. Adding fuel to the rise of fringe, evening wear makes a serious case for the trend: skirts are cut into wide ribbons of beaded fabric and cropped sweater-vest like tops are adorned with cascading strings of beads. The show’s closing looks update Prada’s it-girl padded headbands and introduce sleek metal versions in gold and silver.
