Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada present the Prada Men’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection. In a more seamless effort, this collection seems to blend the signature language of Mr. Simons and the history of Prada. Even from the first look where a suit walks with rolled up cuffs exposing compression shirts, we can see the subtle hints of subversion living symbiotically with tradition. In a nod to his experimentation with tight fitting neoprene at Calvin Klein, Raf sets out with these suits to create a new classic identity for Prada. The trouble here is that this ground was already well traversed if not a signature of Kris Van Assche at Dior.
That was only one small piece of the puzzle. The rest of the collection is nothing short of brilliant. The lush appeal of retro 70s is interpreted quite exquisitely in dazzling knitwear and trousers. Razor sharp tailoring paired with Raf’s signature oversized outerwear and sweaters communicates that his signature look endures and even takes new life at Prada. Take a look at the collection below.
