Throughout the years, Miuccia Prada has been at the fashion forefront of innovation, redefining the codes of femininity and setting remarkable benchmarks with her hard-hitting designs and ideas, creating trends and must-haves for the fashion set season after season. To mark her 40th anniversary since taking the helm at her family-owned label in 1978, Mrs. Prada ventured into the brand's archives for a Pre-Fall '18 collection that pays tribute to the Italian house's iconic moments.
There are a handful of designers that are able to reference their past work so skilfully and do so without looking like they have run out of fresh ideas. However, Mrs. Prada seamlessly mixed and matched instantly recognisable motifs from past collections, creating new fabric hybrids and repurposing them for the collection.
Even footwear is not safe from this emphasis on functionality and protection! The neoprene Bianco stiletto sock boots comes just in time to a world now dominated by ugly-dad sneakers and cool kitten heels. With ankle straps and buckle clips on stilettos, it would seem that Prada Pre-Fall is really committing to putting safety with style!
