Max Mara and Prada FW 21/22: Two Different Ways Of Facing The Same Reality

Second day of fashion week and other news to come. It is the turn of Prada and Max Mara who, icons of Milanese ready-to-wear, have certainly not disappointed their faithful. For Max Mara this is a fashion week that is more heartfelt than usual, and despite the restrictions that made it digital, the celebration was worthy of its seventieth anniversary! The approach of the brand that launched the teddy coat is undoubtedly a reinterpretation of the codes that made it famous; the most iconic garments are on parade marked by an unforgettable 1951 imprinted in retro style on outerwear and pullovers. Prada, on the other hand, takes the present head-on and mixes the languages ​​of Miuccia and Raf Simons in a still new and surprising perspective.


British style and Milanese attitude come together in the garments that dress the Max Mara woman for next Autumn / Winter. Like a queen, who perfectly embodies the stylistic codes of the English monarchy, the muse Max Mara walks the runway wearing the garments of the so-called Anniversary Collection, with an authentic and at times incredibly eccentric flavor. The new oversized bomber jackets and “thornproof” jackets in very soft alpaca and utility pockets, in the iconic shades of camel, black and the new entry in olive green, catch the eye. Combined with the outerwear there are kilts, to be worn with thick socks and lace-up shoes, oversized sweaters, pencil skirts with fringes and capes. Impeccable checkered tattersall suits, graphic tartans, velvet patches and elegant organza jabots. Among the new patterns there is certainly tartan, typically Scottish, softened by accessories such as scarves that delicately wrap the head, as Lady Diana would have done.

PRADA FW 21/22

The freedom of the body and its energy are for Prada the sources of inspiration for this new Fall / Winter collection. The style in general plays with tight but incredibly comfortable shapes, which sinuously follow the silhouette of the body, guaranteeing its movement. The protagonists are the tight-fitting “long johns” and in jacquard knits that replace bare skin. The dresses are animated by pleats and gathers, while the tailored suits are deconstructed, revealing the body, without any constraints. Functionality and pragmatism are the vademecum of the Prada proposal, which abandons the obvious and the usual, transforming its essential languages. Evening dresses become practical jumpsuits and tailored coats are dressed in bright colors, sequins and faux fur inserts. The color palette departs from the one that is typically being observed for next season, abandoning beige to pay homage to the iconic colors of the maison such as black, yellow and purple. A new comfort made of materials such as Re-nylon, symbol of Prada, and Jacquard in a new symbiosis that invokes protection and grace.
