On The Runway | Prada Fall/Winter 2012 MFW
Staging a grand affair for the fall/winter 2012 season, Miuccia Prada looked to the power found in dress for the season’s inspiration. Featuring a star-studded cast that included actors Adrien Brody, Gary Oldman and Jamie Bell, the power of influence was in no short supply. Somber and constrained, striped numbers opened the show with Prada executing a degree of simplicity, sending out double-breasted coats, at times layered in pairs. Complete with pocket ornaments, the distinguished lineup branched out to familiar silhouettes of seasons past before taking a moment for the epitome of leisure. Cut like a fine dressing gown, the basis of elegance for the collection was reinforced and executed to the final look with a grand cast of characters.
