Prada Offers A Darker Take on Spring Summer 2014

Miuccia Prada presented a darker side of Summer in this latest line-up. Menacing Paradise looked to sinister goings-ons in exotic places. No big smiles and umbrella adorned cocktails here, ‘the cliché of summer’ as she put it, dead and buried for this latest outing. As is often the case with Prada, the ’50s played its part. Poolside open collar shirts, silk Ricky jackets featuring oversized pin-up girl prints, smart wool polos, oversized flowing trousers and plenty of Aloha for fans of American midcentury cool. A beautifully turned out vision of a bleak summer. More in the gallery.
