Everything's clear at Prada
To add to your shopping budget for next season, along with about five pairs of shorts and a new jumpsuit, come stick-on perspex nails, courtesy of Prada.
That is, of course, if you have change left over from the design house’s chunky perspex heels, see-through plastic handbags and brightly coloured, geek chic glasses.
Proving yet again Miuccia knows how to throw a fashion curve ball like no other, tonight’s show was anything but ordinary. Proceedings started with a parade of deconstructed raw silk suit separates, with trousers chopped and left unhemed at the knee, or cropped high into knicker shapes, with white shirts tucked in and then pulled down to poke underneath the shorts.
However, it was the finale of pieces superimposed with hazy palm-studded beach scenes that really impressed. Often overlaid with bibs of crystal, when added together these sporty separates became almost the perfect mirror image to the hotel lobby scene being beamed onto the arch-studded wall that ran down the centre of the runway.
