Miuccia Prada continued where the fall preview in January left off with Prada’s fall-winter 2016 show presented during Milan Fashion Week. The Italian designer expanded a nautical theme to include more ladylike styling. Prada focused on form-fitting silhouettes using corsets or belts over coats to create a bell shape.
Wearing sailor hats and cross-body bags, the Prada woman traverses the fashion landscape in rich brocades, fur and velvet. Prada worked with artist Christophe Chemin on a selection of prints, depicting jumbled scenes, full of color. The footwear touched upon the nautical theme once more—laced up boots with anchors on the heel or platform brogues with gold details echoing a ship’s exterior added another layer.
