Taking to the Piano Factory in New York, Prada presented its resort collection for 2020, and the Italian fashion house opted for timeless, understated styles layered over each other for a modern twist.
As the Italian fashion house took it the Big Apple, the likes of Naomi Watts, Diane Kruger and Elle Fanning turned to see the show. And for Prada’s Resort 2020 collection, the Creative Director took a smart approach to holiday dressing.
Miuccia Prada decided to open the show by dressing her first model in a double-breasted black jacket and a red and white scarf, the accessory’s purpose to adorn in a decorative manner rather than practical.
The show followed on with looks such as black power blazers over flower-embroidered white dresses, mixing tailored formal wear over more casual designs.
While many items were void of glitz, glamour and embellishment, flare was added with layering and mixing designs, such as beige square prints over blue and white striped, layered over checkered skirts. The looks were finished with chunky laced trainers worn over socks pulled above the ankles, pearl details, bowler bags and drop earrings.
The collection aimed to put an alternative viewpoint on the familiar, and rebellious simplicity. Prada captured the sincerity and simplicity of high fashion but added a twist by pairing such items.
