With strong hints of modern femininity, Prada’s SS23 collection highlighted businesswear in a new light at Milan Fashion Week.

The audience experienced the collection through film director Nicolas Winding Refn’s lens, which exuded simplicity from every angle.

Featuring a slew of grey tones and pastel tones, the tailored silhouettes took inspiration from past-season menswear collections and transformed them into sleeker asymmetrical styles. Through complex construction, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons showcased a practical collection in a nuanced setting.

Adopting the principles of simplicity even further, skirts, roll necks other pieces were designed from paper like fabrication, panopticon, that represents creative freedom and gestures of liberation. By playing on illusions, the layering effects were applied to coats and dresses depicting a sci-fi fit, eluding a toned-down version of ‘90s eclecticism.

“We wanted to do something with the most simple, modest material,” Prada said.

While the clothes might be simple, the runway presentation represented a counter notion. As an antidote to simplicity, the crude rawness featured a distinct reality where the emulsification of contrasts exists.
