Prada's Men's Spring 2019 show happened last night in Milan, and as always, there were many allusions to the past and motifs borrowed from the art world, all brought together to form one puzzle. And, it seems, this time the main thing in this puzzle was the word "sexuality".
Models trotted down the runway in micro-shorts, which Miuccia Prada herself called "mini-skirts for men," backstage. The most striking accent, however, came in the form of 60s psychedelic prints in a more obvious nod to the era of sexual emancipation. There was a play on gender stereotypes, mainly what is usually considered "feminine" (showing off the legs, tight silhouettes, drapery) versus what can be seen as traditionally masculine (slightly exaggerated silhouettes, jackets, et. al). All in all, a glorious gender perception fuck set to the tune of "Sexy Boy" by French music duo Air.
