Prada: City of Women


Autumn/Winter ’17 Collection at a Glance

After everything that has happened this year (no, she does not (explicitly) mention Trump), Miuccia Prada clearly can’t turn a blind eye. The title of a Federico Fellini film comes to mind: City of Women. So she trimmed down the location where the collection was shown to a flat share: beds with fluffy cushions, wall tiles with Polaroids stuck on them, warm lights and numerous fictitious film posters on all sides.

This is where Prada once again explored her definition of femininity. And the topic of seduction. This time there are sexy styles, but with the challenge that women should nevertheless keep their composure and their intellect. For clarification, she uses bras and feathers repeatedly. But above all, women themselves should define what is seductive. In this collection, the sexy spectrum ranges from a cord suit, patchwork leather jackets and slit pencil skirts to dresses bearing prints of famous film posters by Robert McGinnis – including Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
