Prada Resort 2016 Collection

While most part of the fashion world was waiting for Prada’s spring 2016 men’s rtw show to discover new gorgeous trends for male fashionistas, Miuccia Prada decided to double the excitement by unveiling the Prada resort 2016 collection for women within the men’s fashion show. It was a bold and funky collection, which was pretty in line with the menswear in terms of the colors, graphic prints and styles chosen. Despite being totally fun and at times crazy, new and also innovative while still merging certain ‘60s notes, the pieces presented radiated a certain wearability and functionality, coziness and a relaxed attitude appealing to a huge crowd of modern fashionisers, who love playing with risqué and creative fashion pieces while also feeling and looking comfortable in their own skin.

You don’t have to do much to stand out in the crowd wearing any of these Prada designs, as they are meant to attract loads of attention, looking positively vibrant and fabulous. While it’s hard to understand the source of inspiration of the designer to bring such curious prints and patterns, from cute rabbits and arrows to eyes, rocket ships an race cars mixed with tons of colorful stripes, we are more than ready to don all of these gorgeous staples right away to make a powerful sartorial statement! There’s absolutely no room for boredom, monotony and monochrome looks in this collection, as even the most sober and demure looks bring certain patterning, at least horizontal and vertical stripes that inject so much excitement to the retro-inspired looks.

When it comes to the color palette used, think a rainbow of muted autumnal shades including rust, burgundy, gray, black, mustard, red and blues, which bring a certain retro mood reminding of the Sixties. The same diversity and variety exist in terms of the fabric choice, as the Prada resort 2016 collection features pieces made of knitwear, silk and snakeskin, while oversized sequins, punk inspired chains, rivets and eyelets have been utilized to add more excitement and edge to the designs. Despite their flashy character, most of the outfits surprisingly easily fit in with any wardrobe, whether you’re a business lady or a big fan of the feminine style. Sporty zip-up printed sailor sweaters are carelessly tucked into color-blocked pleated flare skirts, sometimes topped with snakeskin coats and zip-up jackets to give the perfectly layered finish to the looks. Tube skirts, T-shirt dresses and printed snakeskin pinafore dresses with chain straps worn over cozy sweaters are other lust-worthy items we can’t wait to get our hands on.

The accessory game of the collection is as strong, bringing undeniably bold and cool pointy-toe Mary Janes worn with grandma-style socks and chained sandals on kitten heels, but also bowling bags featuring bright colors, chain and eyelet details. Powerful cat eye makeup and textured updo hairstyles finished off the looks, making the models look simply picture perfect.

Interestingly enough, Miuccia Prada kept the same fun spirit for the menswear line as well, picturing the same “crazy and stupid” characters on the clothing pieces, which though looked much more defiant.
