Miuccia Prada is never one to curtail her artistic visions, and her latest showcase at the Fondazione Prada Osservatorio proves just that. Located two floors in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II, the venue was housed at the level of the glass-and-iron dome covering the 19th-century arcade, which was reinterpreted by Prada’s go-to architect studio, Rem Koolhaas’ OMA/AMO.
Miuccia enfused modernist vibes within the collection that juxtatopsed with the venue’s industrialized and exposed setting. Bringing forth a compendium of delicate see-through dresses, ones embellished with crystal details, feminine dresses with sportswear elements , Miuccia wanted to work on the idea of metamorphosis of elegance. She did just this with the models, all braided and shaded in large pink-tinted circle shades; showcasing a slightly futurist, elegant versions of sportswear-like silhouettes by clashing the ultra girly, weightless dresses with gamine sportswear elements, waterproof jackets, miniskirts in a technical material, knee-high socks and even sneakers. works with illustrator James Jean emerged once forth; who created a whimsical rabbit print and Liberty prints spotted on pantsuits and parkas.
