“I wanted to break the rules of the classic. To discuss a wish of freedom and liberation and fantasy, and, on the other side, the extreme conservatism that is coming—the duality out there.”
It is this duality between youthfulness and propriety that Miuccia Prada, creative director of Prada, frames the latest Spring/Summer 2019 collection with.
Bright, playful colours and prints breathe spring youthfulness and highlight the best of summer fashion; while the interspersing of neutral palettes like brown and black roots the collection and adds an air of mature respectability.
A-line skirts from the 60s and 70s, trouser shorts and bodysuits with plunging neckline dominated the silhouettes of this release. Another uniting feature are the chunky statement Alice bands that crown each model as they take to the runway.
We feel that this collection is great for both work and play, but seeing is believing, so here are our 12 favourite looks from the catwalk:
