Prada has collaborated with Iranian artist and author of ‘Paris versus New York’ Vahram Muratyan on a fun new concept called Prada Parallel Universes. The result is an array of quirky animated gifs displaying key Prada accessories set in a series surreal vivid landscapes from car racing on sunglasses to oversized studded golf shoes sat on skyscrapers.
On top of this rumours say it might not be long before the images are released in a special capsule T-shirt collection.
Gone was the gold glittery girly thrills of past signature Miu Miu collections, for A/W 2012 it’s all about retro print on print. Miuccia’s fascination with the lady trouser suit has spilled through from last week’s Prada show in Milan. Masculine tailored suits dominate a good portion of the show, from sheen bold colours to retro interior prints this is Miu Miu’s definitive spectrum of suits.
Oversized jackets are teamed with high-waisted trousers, whilst statement printed shirts with elongated seventies collars and frilly ties give the collection a quirky edge. Accessories are over exaggerated from cuban heel English gentlemen style kiltie loafers in plush emerald green to chunky belts and huge 70’s ties.
For later part of the show a glimpse of bare leg’s ushers a series of A-lines dresses with an incredible chainmail-esque mirror tunic. This is a welcome entrance for the avid Miu Miu fan looking for the staple girly look.
Layered suiting, textured fur lapels and rose tinted glasses were amongst the varied looks in the Prada Autumn/Winter 2012-13 show. Showing on the second day of Milan Menswear Fashion Week, the Prada catwalk show enlisted the help of some Hollywood actors including Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Willem Defoe, Jamie Bell and Tim Roth. Miuccia Prada was inspired by men and power and wanted to utilize strong masculine characters in this season’s show, which even included using a humongous vibrant red carpet as the background.
This seasons collection was split into to two half’s first elegant sharp layered suiting in subtle colours of black, black green and dark royal purple which teamed a turtle neck and shirt combinations to create a dramatic elongated neck. The second half was a playful reply to last season’s collection a homage to the seventies with printed belted Mackintosh coats, double breasted peacock coats in blood reds or beige finished with dramatic two tone fur lapels and an array of printed shirts in lothario animal prints and vibrant 70’s interior inspired prints in mustard, turquoise and persimmon.
