Silk, Fur and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant: Prada Fall/Winter 2014

“Your culture is done by your past”, said Miuccia Prada whose shows are never just about coats and dresses, but also about cultural heritage. The starting point for her fall/winter 2014 collection was Fassbinder’s film ‘The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant’ which is why the mood of the collection is so dark. With the orchestra performing live and the special lighting, the show was conceived as an artistic performance. Barbara Sukowa, the star of Fassbinder’s film ‘Lola’, was singing songs by Weimar composer Kurt Weill.

The collection is a continuation of her menswear show from January, inspired by German avant-garde and hence there is something bohemian and depressing about it, but the vibrant color blocking combinations and Art Deco prints spiced up with a bit of a 1930-s glamour makes it less gloomy. There were some beautiful silk dresses paired with oversized jackets and accessorized with thin, narrow scarves, metallic bags, futuristic wedge heels and plenty of fur.
