Prada’s Pre-fall Bag–American new face Lexi Boling stars in the pre-fall 2014 campaign from Prada. Front and center is the Double Bag which was featured in Prada’s pre-fall showing in January.

Prada Fall 2014–Starting where pre-fall left off, the fall-winter 2014 collection from Prada hit the runway for the second day of Milan Fashion Week on February 20th. Inspired by German avant-garde theater, the new season’s outerwear embraces a masculine and boxy shape, sometimes embellished with shearling while other times just featuring abstract prints. It’s not all about mannish appeal though. Slinky slip dresses in sheer and solid fabrics bring a sense of sensuality to fall, as do sack dresses in colorful prints. Scarves are long and skinny while the shoe style of choice this season is wedges with a boot or stacked heel.
Enninful Styles Prada’s Iconoclasts–Prada is launching the revival of its Iconoclasts, a project where stylists transform the looks of its stores. For 2014, the Italian label has tapped Edward Enninful–W Magazine’s fashion director. The Milan boutique and campaign images, which were photographed by Emma Summerton, are inspired by the Harlem Renaissance movement and will feature mannequins in designs from the spring collection as well as vintage pieces.
