Prada Men’s Spring 2013
Mrs. Prada truly is capable of perfecting the art of design. It’s no wonder she was part of a retrospective at the Met this past spring, considering her immense design talent. Whilst Miuccia’s design talents precede her, we can’t help but admire her consistent ability to produce such on-the-ball collections.
For next spring, despite it’s mostly dreary and darker mood, the Prada man is all about neo-sports-prep. Yes, it wasn’t a thing before now, but Miuccia has been known for creating ‘things’. And this trend is a ‘thing’ that, judging by the range of casting in the show, is appropriate for any age. With sharp lines and even sharper tailoring, the Prada man has a classic silhouette shaped outfit, which is accentuated by racing stripes down the sides and color blocked, crisp shirts. Of course, the Prada man is nothing without his Prada woman, so it comes as no surprise that Mrs. Prada had included a few vixens in to the show. Colors such as navy, burgundy, red, forest green and more were accompanied by the neo-sports-prep aura, which was only even more supported by the terry-cloth sweatbands the models wore down the runway.
The simple lines and even simpler colors may hark to the impending Olympics, or even the state of the Euro in the economy at present. But all we know is that Miuccia is capable of producing these sort of collections with ease, and flawless and impeccable taste. For there is just not one Prada man – there are many, in his own way. Plus, he’s super preppy and sporty, which means he’s really, really attractive. We definitely want one.
