Here comes the last season for Miuccia Prada’s team design, showcased by Terence Nance, Joanna Piotrowska, Martine Syms, Juergen Teller, and Willy Vanderperre.
Prada 2021’s latest spring and summer series will be the final season of Miuccia Prada and will be co-created with Raf Simons in the future. The latest season tries to break away from traditional formats and work with a number of leading creatives.
This series introduces a new concept “a singular statement is replaced by the perspectives of many.”, which showcased the collections in five different chapters.
Terence Nance, Joanna Piotrowska, Martine Syms, Juergen Teller, and Willy Vanderperre are the creatives chosen for the SS21 project, each of them has focused on a different element and presented it in their own way.
Pieces came in a muted color palette of black, grey, white, and beige, while some womenswear items featured more eye-catching prints. Menswear pieces mainly featuring technical fabrications of Prada nylon with traditional suiting.
Prada also featured technical tailoring, the collection also saw workwear-influenced pieces constructed from leather, cotton, and taffeta.
From the understated aesthetic, “A radicalism is found in purity – simplicity with complexity, yet an antidote to useless complication in precision and directness. The contradiction is celebrated: in apparent fragility can be found strength, through rigor joy.
A sense of lightness not only of physicality but of emotion – the dynamism of sportswear translates throughout a sense of enjoyment, energy, fun. A reason for fashion.”
