OH, SAILOR


It´s already a public-dominion matter (at least in the fashion world) that when the day for a Prada show is coming, the excitement-level rises normally on maximum levels. This nearly-praising way of this Milanese label was few years till now mostly reserved for their women`s wear show-collections. Not that menswear was flat, but definitely less attractive and prolific compared to women´s. As I said till now, because the bold Prada man is back. Miuccia, beside art and architecture, while making a collection and a whole fashion show, is inspired by events happening around the world, like wars, violence and destruction, mixing all her thoughts and reflections about all topics in a contemporary whole. For the next winter her men and few women would be a conjunction of a naval theme with some Victorian-esque elements and some 1940´s references. Mrs. Prada collaborated with a French artist Christophe Chemin , who created prints for the collection. His drawings adorned vests and wide shirts for men´s part and romantic smocks for women´s that refreshed the whole collection composed by snug jackets with peplums, colourful knit bomber jackets, cropped boxy pants, waist-cinched jackets, officer coats and dramatic capes in a colour palette of navy blue, grey, black, maroon and cognac. A big importance-part definitely goes to the clever-accessories, because everywhere you looked, there was plenty of them; from sailor-inspired knitted beanies, shoulder bags and two-tone lace shoes, to detached collars, metal chains hanging from the belt and tiny leathered cases. I guess the waiting part here really paid off.
