Miuccia Prada and Raf Simmons are proving to be quite the pair as their creative minds join forces once again to present Prada’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection in Milan doing what they do best; elevating and accentuating classic pieces to portray new silhouettes and impeccable tailoring. They continue to amaze the fashion world. Presented inside the Deposito at Fondazione Prada, Milan, the house played with tailoring and floral patterns in an attempt at rediscovering ideas of beauty.

The collection places an edgy, futuristic twist on the house’s most iconic uniforms and eveningwear in order to express the notion that beauty is not merely defined by aesthetics, but by action. The garments are representations of the beauty that lies within care, romance, and reality.

 

With an emphasis on re-shaping classic tailored wear as well as leather and suede pieces, the looks that came down the runway placed a strong emphasis on protection and safety, protecting and cocooning the models with fabric. A large variety of skirt silhouettes embellished with floral designs indicate tokens of affection and are reminiscent of the craft of fashion and the care and time that goes into each piece.

Classic, timeless, and redefinition are three words that sum up this collection very well. Many designs pushed traditional societal norms and provided a fresh take on beauty through the delicate cashmere sweaters, ruffled maxis, and mini skirts, pillow-like puffer dresses alongside tailored oversized blazers.

With vibrant orange pillars scattered around the room,┬áthe pieces directly correlated to the surrounding space with a moving ceiling that slowly released multiple floral arrangements throughout the duration of the show. The decor was a re-iteration of their men’s show in January.

Through this collection, Prada changes the vision of day-to-night looks by elevating each piece and carefully pairing entire looks using their classic wardrobe picks with a twist.
