Prada 2018 Resort fashion show, showcased on May 7, 2017 was held at Osservatorio, Fondazione in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan.
AMO prepared the set for the show of in-betweens (spring-winter). Where everything, right from the ambience to the collection lived up to the essence of in-betweens.
Models walked along the windows, glowing in the afternoon sun, suspended between the sky and the ornate iron dome that acted as the silent backdrop for the show. The set was conceived as a confrontation between real and manufactured moments.
Synonymously the collection was mix of classics in a fresh take, sporty athleisure trend interpreted in the most signature Prada style.
The range was made in a delicious palette of subtle pastel; mint, peach, pink, pale blue along the classic white, black and navy blue. The garments followed a slim line silhouette with lots of sheer fabrics and layering as one of the primary directions.Sheer tunics, shirts, overskirts, underskirts, shirtdresses were adorned with a hint of Prada’s intricate embellishments. There were pleats, crystals, feathers and zippers all packed in one collection.
Athleisure trend was predominantly beautified. The models walked the ramp in Tube socks pairing them with heels or Velcro shoes worn with jackets, skirts and dresses. They were given one or more fishtail braids along natural eyes and stark red lip colour.
Like any other trademark Prada show, details were an important aspect, on dresses, on bags, on accessories and headgears. There were feathered hemlines, scalloped edges, patterned socks and textured knits along traces of psychedelic florals and rabbit’s prints.
This collection did make up for the long break of Resort fashion shows that Prada took. We hope to see the brand more often, because we can never have enough of Prada.
