Prada Men’s

Miuccia Prada didn’t stray far from home for her fall men’s collection. In fact, she recreated a living room for the runway, complete with furnishings by Rem Koolhaas for OMA and, for windows, video loops of the view outside.

The clothes fit the domestic setting to a T. Suits were comfortably loose and shirts were untucked with one half of a collar sticking out the top of sweaters. In keeping with a retro 70s vibe, colors were warm and professorial, fabrics appeared synthetic at times, and cuts were boxy and slightly awkward, mostly in cropped, ankle-baring pants and truncated zip-front tops with contrasting pockets.

Overall, a fairly straight-forward collection from Prada. But for those requiring more kitsch can find it in several baby-blue ruffled tuxedo shirts recalling prom night circa 1975.
