Trails, corsets and evening dresses, but in Prada fashion: the

seduction by reduction

imagined by creative co-directors

Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons

for next spring summer is a way of exploring ideas for expressing sexuality through clothing , recontextualizing elements of the past.


And here comes

the train

it is a memory in couture silk on the very short skirt, worn with an oversized blazer or biker jacket, while the curvature of a bra is a hint on the striped wool maxi-pullover, the lacing of the corsets are superimposed on the blouses and do not restrict the body, which however, it is always in the foreground. From the elegance of the evening dresses an entire wardrobe is born, in double satin but also in scarlet lace, redesigned for the everyday. They are

calf-length dresses revived at the waist, with the back deliberately left uncovered

by untied buttons, alternating with shaped oversized coats with corsetry lacing, worn with sculptural heel sandals. "We had thought of words like elegance, but - says Miuccia Prada - it seemed so old-fashioned to us. In reality,

the language is that of seduction

and which always

leads

back to the body. The collection analyzes the meaning of these garments in the current context through ideas and references to the past and questions the meaning of seduction. Why are these ideas still important after hundreds of years? The intent is to explore and compare them. "" I like - continues Miuccia Prada - the idea of ​​being able to analyze the garments we refer to because they are relevant to our history, especially as women. It is not a rejection, but a rethinking of how to use them in a different way. "" Trains, corsets and evening dresses. These elements have always been considered beautiful and interesting - adds Raf Simons - but we want to look at them from another point of view.


An evening dress, however beautiful, at this moment seems out of reality. We want these dresses to be relevant to the 21st century and to women today. We want to enjoy beauty, but with an eye on the present and not on the past, today. Evening dresses and period dresses can be complicated. We wanted to make them simple and uncomplicated, with a modern attitude. "For Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, today's show was the first live show as creative co-directors after a series of digital catwalks due to the pandemic. world has changed and "I strongly disagree with the idea of ​​a return to 'normality' - says Miuccia Prada - we must draw a lesson from this historical moment. We have learned that we, in fashion,we are confronted with a much wider world. "For this reason, today's show was staged at the same time at the Fondazione Prada in Milan and in Bund 1 in Shanghai. Video screens made the two shows communicate with each other, combining physical and virtual realities in spaces set up in a similar way.


"The possibility of having several events taking place at the same time - comments Simons - opens up a new path: being able to organize Prada fashion shows anywhere. It is not just a question of sharing images through technology, but of sharing a physical event. The community is an idea. vital: bringing together people who share ideologies, values ​​and principles ".

"After all that has happened, how can you pretend nothing has happened - asks Miuccia Prada - and simply go back to normal?".


A question that remains in the air, while outside the Prada Foundation - as well as in the other fashion shows of major brands - that circus of curious and fashion enthusiasts that with the covid seemed destined to extinction is back on the scene.
