Miuccia Prada debuted Prada’s spring-summer 2017 collection during the Milan fashion week. For the catwalk’s backdrop, Prada collaborated with the American writer and director David O. Russell (American Hustle, The Fighter, and Silver linings Playbook), who created a multi-screen film installation, showing fragments of Past Forward, a “cinema poem” that’s described as a surreal, futuristic silent dreamscape with multiple actors replaying scenes in shifting combinations, according to the brand’s show notes.
The collection included ladylike silhouettes, Asian-influenced styles, mandarin collars and oversized clutches. There was a marabou feathers galore – colourful feathers abounded on collars, cuffs, hems, shoe straps and pretty much on everything. We noticed bralettes worn over turtlenecks and crisp shirting, and even skorts made their comeback.
