    Leave it Miuccia Prada to combine the machismo of vaguely 30’s and 40’s German/Austrian military lifestyle notes with something as disparate as 60’s and 70’s era mods and dandies for a look that was effortlessly cool, complex, gentrified and full of references paired like never seen before.

    An elegant parade of long double-breasted coats, suiting in surprising shades of purple and muted mustard and handsome layering throughout made this a remarkable winner of a collection that’s sure to be remembered for season’s to come.

    To play into the pomp & circumstance and regality of her collection, Prada cast a formidable crew of leading characters as individual as they may be that included Willem Dafoe, Gary Oldman, Tim Roth and Adrian Brody.

    Jil Sander-

    Although a bulk of the collection had an aggressive, deliberately cold streak that was brought on by fluid, oversized leathers and head-to-toe black, Raf Simons brought practicality into the picture with an assortment of precise tailoring that was on par with the Jil Sander man.

    That being said, this is a house that will always deliver when it comes to high-performance work-minded gear and it was a joy to see Simons subvert that into something exquisitely dark, brooding and melancholic.



    While they’ve proven their skills at women’s wear at Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli presented a triumphant collection for men next season that’s destined to catapult their status in the spectrum once and for all.

    Based on a foundation of slim, masterfully cut monochrome suits with a vaguely 60’s vibe, the duo sent out a varied range of must-have takes on classic coats and jackets re-imagined for a modern man in relaxed dropped-shouldered, curved cocoon shapes and rich jewel tones.
