Prada has released its latest Spring/Summer 2022 menswear collection, co-designed by creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons. Prada and Simons envisioned a joyful and simplistic sartorial response to post-pandemic living. The collection felt at once effortlessly cool and quintessentially Prada.
The runway show was shot in two locations, at the Fondazione Prada’s Deposito in Milan as well as on the coast in Sardinia. Models opened with walking down the Deposito’s meandering red tunnel which led to sea and sun, a surreal transition between urban infrastructure and nature. “A move from indoors to outdoors. After constriction, the power of that feeling of infinity, an endless horizon. It gives you the feeling of freedom again.” Simons mused. Further elaborating on the show’s theme, Miuccia Prada said, “This collection and this show is very much about capturing that, the joy of the everyday. The notion that living your life can be a euphoric experience. Much joy can come out of something so simple: when times are complicated, we are searching for simple, direct joys. An innocence.”
Indeed this joy and innocence that the creative directors speak of can be viscerally felt in the design of the garments and accessories. The standout silhouettes of this season are rompers and skorts. Available in many summer-ready color ways, the rompers are shown with clever rolled-up cuffs, reminiscent of easy days at sea. Styled with blazers or presented alone, the rompers have infinite styling possibilities. Another key silhouette is the skort. This style was previously seen in the label’s Spring/Summer 2017 womenswear range. Now adapted as a menswear piece, the skorts feature fine detailing such as delicate statement belts and ultra-mini lengths. The skorts are daring yet incredibly wearable. To tie the looks together, cue the key accessory of the season, the Prada bucket hat. Prada’s iteration of this wardrobe staple is like no other. Presented in a variety of textures, the bucket hat dips into a triangular point in the rear. Placed above the point are miniature zip pockets, perfect for loose change and lip balms?END
