Prada Spring Summer 2014
The Spring/Sumer 2014 Prada Men's fashion show is a tale of summer,
through all of the season's clichés: humorous themes and exotic
reminders of hot countries (Hawaii, Vietnam) are mixed and made very
contemporary in a collection that speaks of how impossible it is to
describe untainted beauty and perfect happiness. The light-heartedness
normally associated to Prada's imagery of this season is clouded by
a dramatic note and by serious tones that express themselves in a palette
of dark, somber colours, interspersed with brighter touches.
Prints evoking summer dominate: typical Hawaiian motives, flowers,
women's silhouettes, the sun and the sea, the latter two interpreted
with the 'wrong' colours.
Showing on the catwalk wide fitting trousers, shirts, blousons and
jackets, mainly combined in separate two-piece suits to produce
very peculiar matches. Pinstripes are quite prominent. Jacquard printed
sweatshirts recall the same patterns that appear on the murals decorating
the show space.
Cotton is the collection's main material, matched with wool,
like precious kid mohairs and simple materials. Briefcases and suitcases
complete the looks: leather is printed with the same motives used on
fabrics. Footwear includes 'poor' shoes in cotton and rubber
and boxer ankle boots, both for men and for women.
