The post-apocalyptic melancholy of Prada’s s/s 2015 collection

Miuccia Prada, who is always in search of the new, raised eyebrows with her s/s 2015 collection that evoked a post-apocalyptic scenery and juxtaposed tradition with innovation, celebrating a different kind of beauty. The collection included A-line coats with exposed seams, pencil skirts with raw edges, knee length dresses made from patchwork brocade, little sweaters and some impressive platform clogs, paired with funky socks. Miuccia reproduced for the collection more than 30 different types of brocade, dating from the 19th century to the sixties, in her attempt to propose a new way of enjoying the craftsmanship of the past. Indeed, some of the outfits looked like they were revisited versions of older pieces, with seemingly weary fabrics combined together in order to create something completely novel, yet undoubtedly familiar.

There was a certain melancholy to the show, with the models walking amidst enormous indoor dunes that were almost covering the entire catwalk, turning it into an unexpected landscape. Created by Rem Koolhaas’ AMO studio, the purple colored dunes added a touch of mystery, questioning the relationship between outdoor and indoor and modifying constantly the connection between the spectators and the fashion. According to Miuccia Prada, the collection was a confrontation with antiquity, reflecting, at the same time, the current, gloomy state of the world –a sensation that was further accentuated by the uncanny soundtrack that included “Kiss Me” by Psychic TV & PTV3, taken out of “The Ballad Of Genesis And Lady Jaye” OST.
