In the Dressing Room


There were some similarities to be found between this collection and that of Marc Jacob’s for S/S 08 and it will no doubt be just as controversial. Just as Jacobs had done exactly a year before, Miuccia Prada explored the relationship between a woman and her clothes and in the western world at least, her right to choose how much she reveals and conceals her body. To that end the girls were in various states of dishabille. Prada herself said she had gone back to basics and indeed references to her own early work were there also in the choice of fabrics and the simplicity of design. What looked so modern was the wrinkled and crinkled surface on so much of it. What was she saying here? That today’s woman has the confidence to wear the clothes that lay on the floor all night in a crumpled heap? Who knows for sure but Miuccia herself.
