It’s back to basics this Fall/Winter 2022 season for Prada. But what basic really means is the fundamentals of Prada style. Co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons seemed to look toward the house’s design language from the ’90s. Tellingly, the show was titled “An Ideology of Prada” – rather like a creative manifesto.
That meant a revisit of Prada hallmarks, like sensual (and even erotic) sheerness, plush mixes of materials, and geometric prints. There was a vibe too of the ’90s when Prada cemented itself as a uniform of sorts for fashion connoisseurs. The official show notes hint at this as well, describing the collection as a commemoration of “life and living” and of “the occasion of the everyday”.
Below, some takeaway notes from Prada’s Fall/Winter ’22 show.
