Known for having one of the most extravagant runways, Muiccia Prada didn't disappoint this season; the runway was made up of lilac sand, which looked like heavy dunes. When thinking about this, compared to her past runways, this creates some sort of imbalance to luxury. That is what this collection was about, Miuccia created coats with visible stitching on the lines and to further this, she also added diamond necklaces on other looks to create an incongruous fit of luxury and imperfection. Backstage, Prada said "Beauty is an impossibility", which is why clothes were pieced together, tied by strings, ready to be stitched.

I love how Prada is commercially known for super-luxe items, like fine handbags and scarves made with the silkiest silks. Yet, in her runway, she creates clothes with messages. For example, last seasons Mexican political murals which packed meaning into the runway. And this season, which I interpret as the imbalance in society. An imbalance of the wealthy and the poor, who are tied together, to make up the world - even though we have different backgrounds, we all contribute to the same thing.

What did you think of this collection?
