Prada Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection designed by Fabio Zambernardi was shown tonight, September 24,2015 ,in Milan Fashion Week.
Subverting traditional classics: That was the line transmitted about the Prada collection by design directorFabio Zambernardi backstage in the absence Miuccia Prada was unable to be at Milan Fashion Week this season due to the passing of her aunt.
Anyway Prada knows how to divert us. She is playing with us again. The non-pointedness to so much of this collection, with its crushed and recrushing of so many references, was the point. Her work is so much more than fashion – yet Prada appears to be purposely sabotaging her own medium, time and time again. She wants us to know this is a dream not worth having, yet she makes us want to buy that dream back from her. Dowdy fifties housewives, complete with sheer duster coats, were covered to the neck in macramé ponchos. They had a veneer Victorian melancholy, when regarded upwards from the neck. Vinyl Formica stripes and cork relief prints placed our housewives within the setting of a mid twentieth century suburban nightmare. But exactly all this made the collection so interesting!
Agree,it is not exactly summer wearable but Miuccia Prada pays no heed to weather-appropriateness. In her global view there is as much need for pieced fur coats in summer as there is for skimpy silk slip dresses, which she optionally layers over chunky knits.
At the final part of thee Show we could see coats in metallic snakeskin and suede stripes, and beautifully desirable organza suits and coats decorated with outsize transparent pailletted flowers. And those Looks we will see all around the world, maybe in young Hollywood, during the weedings or parties.
