"We decided to create an abstract space, blurring the notions of interior and exterior and expressing the human need to touch, to feel," explained Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons in an unprecedented post-show conversation.
Through questions from students around the world, the two creators explored the notions of their collection based on tactility.
Our need to interact with our environment, a need of which we are currently deprived, is here interpreted by the use of highly sensory materials: from jacquard to re-nylon (this famous recycled nylon designed by Prada) through looped tweed, velvet and ultra-soft leather treated like a cozy pillow.
Playing on proportions, the silhouettes sometimes recall the '60s in geometric patterns, sometimes the' 90s in cuts.
The palette plays with strong contrasts and sees dark shades accentuate red and purple, especially on oversized bombers. The layering and textural effects translate into the jacquard knit jumpsuits, turtlenecks worn under suit jackets. One of the flagship colors of the parade?
Punk pink accentuates accessories, like these leather gloves with integrated pocket.
Cut from time to time by sequences of dancing models to a very rave-party soundtrack, the show took place within "non-spaces" made up of marble walls and faux fur, a material that we found on the collars of the maxi coats of the collection.

The Prada FW21 collection
The freedom to transgress conventional limits is expressed in the freedom of the body, its energy, defined through fitted bodysuits in stretch jacquard knit, representations and substitutions of exposed skin.
The importance given to the body serves to emphasize action, activity, underlined by soft and naturally comfortable pieces: the attitude of movement, transposed.
The dresses are enlivened by pleats and gathers. The costumes convey a universal classicism and are embellished with slits offering a paradoxical glimpse of the body, free from any constraint.
Physical freedom reflects an ideology.
Clothing evolves from one intention to another: an ornament can become functional, while a practical piece can become decorative.
We observe a transition between fundamental languages.
The notion of obviousness is rethought: evening dresses transform into utilitarian combinations and elegant coats come in bright colors or with sequins, evolving between antonymic objectives.
Straight shawls are transformed, making their pure architecture the foundation for new forms of outerwear.
Made in Re-Nylon and jacquard, with synthetic fur and sequins, they retain a closing gesture - another action - closely associated with the notions of protection and grace.
