Transforming nearly every notable face that walked the runway, Miuccia Prada has created a collection that only a master with pristine insight can both execute and elevate. The designer explores her namesake fashion house's history of influence and the current rise of youth and their inclusion and influence within the larger fashion scope.

Finding herself in the playing field of bright young things, Miuccia explores youth by boldly transporting us back to the the '60s and '70s, creating baby doll dresses, satin tunics and biker shorts, and above the knee double breasted wool coats. Using shoes, sunglasses, hats, and bags as the ultimate vibrant colorstory in this collection, this lineup of Prada accessories has never felt more enviable than before and adds the liberal kick of modernity in just the right dose.

In a press statement, Miuccia mentions, "I wanted to break the rules of the classic. To discuss a wish of freedom and liberation and fantasy, and, on the other side, the extreme conservatism that is coming—the duality out there." Indeed, the designer very keenly balances the line within this collection of art and commerce, a part of Miuccia's genius that consistently surfaces with each collection she presents.

A representation of the modern climate with the wit and honesty of those before, Miuccia Prada's SS19 collection reminds the industry and its consumers how ready-to-wear high fashion plays a huge role in defining the current times and the individuals or cultures that are shaping them. Fearlessly taking us within her headspace and vibrantly excelling at that.
