Talking about fall 2016 collection, Miuccia Prada had a couple of things to say;
“We need to understand who we are today,” she said “Everything is symbolic. It is like a collage of what is happy or painful, of whether you are feeling beautiful or horrible, when you have love or no love. I thought of it as like someone who has all the clothes she’s ever had on the floor in front of her in the morning, and she must choose how she’s going to assemble herself.” In show notes, Prada also said “The nature of women is complex and ineffable . . . Like a Russian doll placed inside one another.”
The collection included big tailored jackets with dropped shoulders, sleeves covered in fur with argyle tights; high heels, full 50’s-style skirts and dresses in rich gilded cloque silk with multiple belts buckled on top, 40’s style cocktail dresses; leather trench coats also bringing back corsets; but this time above jackets and a sailor’s cap. Also there were some interesting jewelry with keys and padlock designs. The collection captures a woman on a journey.
