A Prada presented a traditional casual evening dress at the Milan Fashion Week this Friday, featuring a spring collection that explored seduction through clothing.
Creative co-directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, who joined the Milan-based, Hong Kong-listed luxury group last year, added silk trains to the backs of sparkly miniskirts, placed lace bodices in front of jackets and imitated the cups of bras in knitted garments.
The spring/summer 2022 collection, dubbed “Seduction, stripped”, also featured long dresses in pink, lemon and tangerine with exposed backs and cinched at the waist.
Short dresses also appeared cut in the back and with trains, and biker jackets were given a “shabby” look and were paired with brightly colored miniskirts.
“We think of words as elegant, but this feels very old-fashioned. In fact, it’s a language of seduction that always takes you back to the body,” Prada said in a statement.
“Using these ideas, these references to historical pieces, this collection is an investigation of what they mean today, what seduction means.”
One model wore a red lace dress, and others wore sleeveless tops and matching hotpants.
Accessories included waistband armbands and pointy shoes with heel straps in bright colors.
