Prada Fall Delivers Big on Our Favorite Things
Part goth, teenage rebel, part ’50s housewife, and utilitarian explorer, Miuccia Prada’s Fall 2019 lineup proves she can dress anyone. That’s not to say her collection lacks direction — the saying “there’s something from everyone” applied here isn’t a knock on her creative prowess, but rather points to how Prada is one of the few designers who creates clothes women want to wear. This season, that look is at once gothic and angsty, and womanly, reimagined. Her take on the hallmarks of these dressing tent poles, combat boots at the core of goth wardrobes and ’50s-feeling sheath dresses that defined an entire era of woman’s wardrobes, are delivered with delightful new details. Clunky boots were finished in pink and red patent and, in some cases, given cargo pockets fastened around the ankles. (Gimmicky? Maybe, but as a new mom, I’m always — and desperately — seeking additional storage pockets.)
On that note, the shoes and bags are stars. There are furry bags in bright colors that will become street style mainstays. Models carried them with utilitarian jackets and suits, as if to say, even women on a mission deserve a great handbag. The more-ladylike bags were oversize with flaps and shoulder straps, the kind of classic shapes you’d invest in now and carry for years to come. Then, there’s the more whimsical add-ons: satin bags with tulips and roses hanging off the sides. They’re romantic and girly, and perfect to pair with the glittery ruby and silver heels.
