For this collection Roksanda Ilincic used warm and colorful blanket-like fabrics. They are mixed together in unexpected ways creating a wonderfully vivid winter color palette which includes blue, turquoise, orange, fuchsia, red, orange, purple and brown. Clothes are impeccably tailored and color contrasts are very appealing. She used a lot of patchwork technique to stitch together pieces of fabric in different colors.
Coats and dresses have loose, asymmetric silhouettes that look very comfortable and yet elegant. Even some of the evening dresses are done in wooly fabrics, and they sometimes look like the body is wrapped in a very pretty blanket. The others are made from satin which is embellished with chunky beads.
The collection also features fabulous clutches made out of two-colored wool and flat shoes as well as heels with vintage herring-bone pattern, which she also used for dresses and coats.
Miuccia Prada’s latest collection for men is inspired by avant-garde theater which is both political and experimental. That is why there is something theatrical and alternative about the styling, as well as the clothes itself. Ties are worn like scarfs and they are always in opposition with the rest of the outfit. Colors are mixed freely, but with taste. For example, bright shade of red and purple are used to contrast dark colors such as black, navy, grey and brown.
The collection is very sophisticated and artistic and Prada described it as “more personal, changing from pop culture to intimacy, introversion, even solitude“.
