PRADA F/W 2021

By Crash

Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons just presented the Prada Fall/Winter 2021 collection.

It is inspired by the idea of change and transformation, opening possibilities. A fusion between disparate themes and intents mirrors the nature of humanity: a belief in the fact that men and women each hold the masculine and feminine within themselves. This collection explores the space that exists between conventional polar opposites – the point between simplicity and complexity, elegance and practicality, limitation and release, transmuted.

“In this collection we play with the idea of the classic – we subvert it, we transmutate it. The bomber-wrap – a wrap with a bomber-jacket’s sleeves – is the perfect evocation. By classic, I mean that it has passed the exam of history – the word ‘classic’ means there is something intrinsically necessary or clever about it, something meaningful. I like the word ‘classic’ for that reason. It actually means something that is relevant to people, relevant to life. Often, it is very simple – through new materials, a different cut or context, something obvious, eternal, normal – with a simple gesture, it can transform. That is what I truly love, in fashion.” says Miuccia Prada.

Raf Simons declared: “Transmutation, transfiguration. The fundamental, integral idea of change – that intrigues us. Transmutation is the word we return to, in the concept of something that transforms slowly, shifting and changing, becoming heightened. And it is fascinating because it’s such a wide idea – it can be applied to so many things. There are many more contrasts in this collection – retro and futuristic, embellished and minimal, sports and elegance – because we are combining them, hybridizing them, creating something that seems new.”
