Resort 2020 Influencer Show: Prada

Sweet, simple and uncomplicated are not words we usually associate with today’s fast-paced world – but they form the bedrock of Miuccia Prada’s latest Resort offering. The building blocks of the woman’s wardrobe are compiled in offbeat proportions and mismatched layers, devoid of any hidden subversive messages.

The simple silhouettes celebrate the familiar, rather than the perverse and directional. Perhaps this is Prada’s take on anti-luxury – albeit with a designer price tag; a way of promoting a less-is-more, reuse/recycle nod to a more sustainable approach to fashion. Whatever the backstory, the look is refreshingly young and unsophisticated – from the sparse tailoring to the modest mid-calf hemlines teamed with vintage-style hi-tops, chunky knit socks, bowling bags and practical nylon rucksacks.

Fabrics convey that same message of comfort and familiarity. Wholesome cottons and calico, supple suede, classic shirting stripes and Tattersall checks are interspersed with a patchwork of clashing wallpaper prints and pretty chintz roses. And there’s a summery freshness in the palette of soft forget-me-not blue, rose pinks, warm tan and camel, undercut with cool aqua greens, a flash of red, and the grounding force of black and white.

Silhouettes have a casual ease – from the tailored coats and classic blazers to retro-esque trapeze coats, full skirts and tunic blouses, replete with naïve, folksy embroideries and homespun smocking trims. Oversized cabled tank tops and straightforward boxy, zipped jackets bring a sportier edge into play, with the contrasting feminine appeal of a frisson of pleats and lace-edged tiered skirts.

The finishing touches confirm the mood for make-do and mend, with childlike handknit striped scarves, and bobble hats trimmed with plastic paillette petals.
