RUNWAY: Prada FW17

The 1970s academic was alive and well at Prada's Fall/Winter 2017 collection and runway show. The color palette stayed within brownish range, creating an almost sepia filter on these newly designed clothes. Nostalgia played a role in the clothes since the 70s were a time for great social upheaval, when women stood up for their rights and the idea of love and peace was the center of the minds of the youth. For FW17, Prada offered a chance to go back to that, when the youth were calling one another to action to stand up for their themselves and what they believed. This came in the form of collegiate-like looks that presented itself in incredibly chic layers: leather jackets, printed shirts, and slightly billowy pants. Some models were scarves daintily wrapped around their necks while chunky necklaces, including un-ironic pukka shell necklaces, were worn by many models. There was also a plethora of great new accessories, including covetable bags and some very peculiar furry footwear, something that we've, unfortunately, seen more of the past few seasons. In all, Prada, who has seem their sales take a slide, thanks in large part to stagnation in sales in China and other parts of the world, offered something many aficionados covet: timeless clothes. These clothes can be part of a decade long gone but feels of the right now and likely will still be great looking in a few decades.
