Prada Menswear Fall Winter 2021 collection marks the first men’s collection since Raf Simons joined Miuccia Prada as the creative head of the famed Italian Fashion House. The collection rounds up the latest menswear from Prada within forty new looks. The looks while taking on the Prada classics are now for the first time clearly infused with Raf’s touch. On the first glance the oversized sweaters are undoubtedly coming from Simons’ pen, however the Miuccia influencer is overwhelmingly still present.
Unlike the previous menswear collection presented in the covid19 dictated conditions, without any audience and with most of the world in lockdown the collection goes beyond the classical monochrome pieces. If anything Milan Fashion Week shows fashion brands daring to experiment with new trends, hoping for ease of C19 restrictions and perhaps higher spending will of the consumers all around. Going with “Possible Feelings” title as perhaps even the theme of the collection the brand shared: “A similar doublespeak is reflected in the depiction of the body itself – via clothes reduced, minimalized in structure. The logical conclusion is to return to the body: jacquard-knit bodysuits create a streamlined “second skin”, serving to delineate the figure in dynamic movement. Abstraction of feeling becomes abstraction of freedom. These bodysuits paradoxically reveal while concealing, placing an emphasis on physicality, but also covering the form. Some are proposed alone: in other outfits, they are used to create a base layer under tailoring and outerwear.”
Following the runway presentation stream Miuccia and Raf took a moment to sit down and talk to fashion students from around the globe. The design duo took conversations beyond the Prada Menswear Fall Winter 2021 collection, talking about the social moments we are all in and the importance or lack of the same the fashion industry actually has and the ever talked about Prada uniform. The incredibly insightful conversation between Raf, Miuccia and the students follows the video embed above.
