Favorites from Prada Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
I didn't go to the Prada fashion show, but that doesn't mean I can't pretend. For the rest of this article I will be living in a parallel world, where I was present at Prada's fashion show in Milan. Walking into the arena, I was amazed by the use of art, and how it was so much involved in the show in a way that just can't be explained. Miuccia Prada brought art to life in her show, with the work of contemporary artists plastered across the walls. The pictures were in sync with the theme she was aiming to portray; feminism and representation of power. I am not the best person to interpret art, but seeing women's faces drawn in the most beautiful ways and truly reflecting an emotion made me try and think outside the box. I particularly liked the the picture of the woman with her eyes closed, and what seemed to be a gesture with her hand of having enough. Moving onto the clothes, Prada never ceases to disappoint with their artistic gift in making eye-catching ensembles. What caught my attention the most, was that most pieces also had women drawn on them, across the coats, dresses etc… Prada lived up to expectations in knowing how to stage a statement catwalk, have you seen the exposed bras on the outfits?
