FW 2022 Womenswear

An ideology of Prada

An ideology of Prada becomes an etymology of beauty.

A fascination with and reflection of humanity is a fundamental principle of Prada. The Fall Winter 2022 collection by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons is a commemoration of life and living - of the occasion of the everyday, affording importance to each moment. Glimpses of tradition reflect histories of people, memories of lives, valued. Tradition passes culture between generations - a conduit from the past to now. Mnemonics, recollections and quotations evoke fragments of personal narratives, comprising a history, a history of women.

The Collection

Pragmatic pieces are given new emphasis and significance, tailoring combined with the language of evening clothes. Combinations of the quotidian and precious disturb the aesthetic vernacular of each. They simultaneously confer significance and emphasize reality, a fusion. Colliding traditions in unexpected manners, an inversion and challenge of materials, of embroideries, and of garments, agitate and disturb. Conventionally masculine pieces are transformed, interrupted with the feminine: coats are carved out at the neck or back. The architecture of clothes affect their rapport with the body. Tailoring construction applied to soft dresses to give new forms.

History is universal. Within, inevitably, there is an archeology of Prada, investigation of the codifications and meanings evoked through appearance and approach. Glances at a Prada past. Elementally Prada, an eccentricity of surface is combined with spare silhouettes. Juxtapositions are made both between garments, and within their construction, combining materialisations and decoration. Referent to Prada’s own heritage, geometrics are translated to jacquard knits, embroideries and colors echoed.

The Showspace

Designed by AMO, a bare concrete tunnel that blends with the materiality of the Fondazione Prada's Deposito leads to the spacious olive gree-hued room where the Prada Fall Winter 2022 Womenswear show takes place. Sci-fi-like tunnels of metal grating lit with neon light take the models into the large and soft showspace. Inside, olive green theatre chairs organized according to an orthogonal grid create a zig-zag runway space, as spotlights follow the models emphasizing the uncanny relationship between the theatrical and technological atmospheres.
