You can always intellectualise Miuccia’s Prada shows as her cathartic — and creative — release from her anxieties and preoccupation about topics like politics and capitalism. Evidently, the woman has a lot of issues which she tries to pack and address in her work: just read the interviews on the Web about her S/S ’19 collection and you’ll realise how she wants to weave the idea of psychedelia by mixing different themes like freedom, nudity, et cetera.
What stands out about this collection when we previewed it in Seoul recently is the finesse and restraint that define Mrs Prada’s vision of eclecticism. A quote on Women’s Wear Daily sums up quite beautifully what she envisions this to be: “I’m trying to simplify because eccentric pieces aren’t worn by many people…Maybe we should all lower our expectations. Because if you cross the line, people don’t care. And fashion needs people. It needs people who care.”
Here, we show how these accessories staples get remixed for S/S ’19.
