Season's Round Up # 52: PRADA FW2013 MENSWEAR
Prada has long been heralded for her well thought of designs and this season is no different. If the staging of the entire show wasn't enough of an indication - the "ideal" house referencing the late 60's framed by imagery of cityscapes and a playful feline - I don't know what else would be. Prada's FW2013 Menswear collection was an epitome of contemporary design so if this is what you're after then look no further. It has been a while since Prada produced classical, elegantly poised and wearable collections, as the past seasons traversed her creative mind in ways that astounded and renewed the love for this brand. You won't be seeing any of the loud prints or screaming accessories and instead you'll see traditional garments decorated with more classic prints such as the houndstooth; bringing us back to the classic days of the label.
What made the show unique would be the use of slightly off colours, the ruffled tuxedo shirts and the thick grip soles that gave a twist to otherwise staple business shoes. The shoes are actually a bit reminiscent of the recently released FW2012leather "clown" shoes for men. That being said, the collection will definitely last in any man's wardrobe given it's classic stance.
