Spring/Summer ’17 Collection at a Glance
Miuccia Prada has swapped the sailor hats of her previous collection for swimming caps like the ones our grandmothers used to wear. What used to be reserved for gentlemen of independent means – namely spending the entire day in a dressing gown – is now street style. And why not saunter through the city streets in a well-cut bathrobe? Combine it with a floral house frock – again the kind that hasn’t been worn for a couple of generations – put on your swimming cap and a bit of lippy and…voilà! We’re planning on enjoying a summer that’s just as jaunty as that outfit!
Combine the swim cap with spacey, hexagonal glasses with a sturdy and brightly coloured frame. Colour-coordinated with the dressing gown, meaning it should preferably be in acid green or ’60s red.
Other than the revival of sixties cuts in swimwear? The baggy hot pants with delicate embroidery, worn with a khaki shirt and pale pink platforms.
