Prada S/S 2014

Art / Architecture / Design / Fashion

Few designers, if any, other than Miuccia Prada, maintain the creative capacity from season-to-season to build on a steadfast design ethos while generating such aesthetically variant collections. What is this ethos, you may ask? First off, any discussion of Prada womenswear since the early aughts would be remiss without mention of the brand’s feverish focus on artistic narratives. Mrs. Prada has tirelessly championed the art world, both personal and professionally, with Spring/Summer 2014 being perhaps the most apt example of such occasions.


Posted September 16th, 2018 By Colby Mugrabi

Having collaborated with four young mural artists to decorate the show’s venue, with elements of each backdrop appearing on the collection’s clothing and accessories, this season, Mrs. Prada utilized the art of collaboration in as much of a creative sense, as for a political purpose. The cultural undertones associated with the medium of ‘street art’ impacted the collection’s tonality, with models appearing more as invincible heroines, bonded together by their collective motive of generating a feminist statement on the power of being a woman.

This season’s girl gang was further unified through the collection’s focus on street and sport elements, as well as Prada’s hallmark ability to build visual contradictions through styling; tube socks with ladylike handbags, embroidered bralettes atop utilitarian coats, and bejeweled dresses over ribbed tank tops. As the show progressed, each look more vibrant and thoughtful than the last, the message became clear, the power of womanhood is invincible, especially if the woman is wearing Prada.
