A Burst of Colour From Prada's Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection
For as forthrightly colourful as it was in its totality, Prada's Autumn/Winter 2014 show in Milan on Thursday started with some some seriously dark and sober looks. Supermodel Natasha Poly opened the show in a chic black dress layered over a grey turtleneck, which was followed by some double-breasted coats piped in metallic leather or dark fur. So when the black coat lined with bright red and yellow fur came down the runway a few exits later, it was a refreshing shock — and a bit of foreshadowing that the rest of the collection would be bright, too.
In fact, save for a few men's looks — newsworthy in their own right, as Prada doesn't usually mix its collections — the rest of this offering was filled with bold colour and pattern that seemed, in a way, more optimistic than the house's recent collections.
