Prada Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear SS2014
That was a modern army of women Prada sent out yesterday. Not dressed in armor find cheap viagra but as a beacon of feminine strength. As the designer told reporters backstage: “There is a necessity to be strong, visible, fighters, and this is an encouragement to be out there and to do something. If they see you, they listen.”
The Prada-space was transformed by huge murals (inspired by Diego Rivera and other Mexican muralists) of women’s portraits from six contemporary artists.
The portraiture provided the primary leitmotif — big, bold, colorful faces on dresses, coats and skirts. They came printed, jeweled and in fur, merged with high-gloss, demonstrative embroideries, color-blocking and intricate cuts.
The emphasis was on the bosom: keyholes cut into bright, solid shifts bedecked with chunky embroideries; intensely jeweled external bras, including a pair positioned to look like Boudicca headdresses on two of the portraits.
Sports references continued the message of strength; the girls wore striped legwarmers and, sometimes, Prada’s take on Tevas.
