Under the rhythm of Depeche Mode, the model of the season Kaia Gerber opens the show, introducing the army of women who give life to the concept of Prada on this occasion. A casting where we can find young promises like the actress and model Hunter Schafer, but also highlights the maturity with more experienced models like Erin O'Connor or Liya Kebede. This same generational journey is reflected in the pieces that make up the collection. Within what is considered the vital period of human beings, traditions are the thread that unites the past and the present. On a catwalk where the point of departure and arrival is a sci-fi tunnel with neon lights and glass panels onto which the bare, almost industrial concrete of the route between these two points is superimposed, these tunnels seem to evoke a journey through time, a journey from classic to modern that finds its point of fusion in the garments presented.
Tradition, according to Prada, translates into classic tailoring, mostly of male origin, which has been reinterpreted to give way to the feminine in a transition that emphasises the role of women in a world traditionally dominated by men. Pieces such as tailored skirts that are apparently traditional at the top are transformed in the middle and give way to embroidered fabrics with shiny or satin-like finishes, seeming to evoke women's underwear such as babydolls or nightgowns. Likewise, radical and forceful silhouettes can be found in both leather and wool coats that are given a different essence thanks to the colours used for them as well as additional details in fur or feathers added to the upper part of the sleeves.
Iconic Prada elements such as nylon, for example, are present in this collection, with oversized bombers complemented with multiple appliqués of flowers in tone or the usual geometric motifs of the house present in the knitwear thanks to jacquard fabrics. The accessories, triangular bags and shoes with angular heels, are the perfect complement to the collection of a brand that does not need giant logos or extravagant garments to communicate its truth and make itself memorable.
