ARTPOCALYSPE. Miuccia Prada does it again, blending utilitarian, art and fashion
Economic upheaval and political insecurities plaguing the world has strongly inspired the brand’s powerful presentation for fall/winter ’16/’17.
The models donned disheveled tops, with cuffs left open and collars folded backward. There is a certain sense of madness, mirroring what Prada believes to be the state of the world today.
The highlights of the collection are shirts sporting artworks by Berlin-based French artist Christophe Chemin. There are four images in total: “Impossible True Love” shows Cleopatra kissing James Dean; “Banquet Thieves” depicts rats at a feast; “Survival Utopia” is a modern re-imagination of Noah’s Ark; “The Important ones” puts together Hercules, Sigmund Freud, Nina Simone, Che Guevara, among others, in a fight club.
Needless to say, these are the hottest shirts of the season.
