Mixing nylon with suede, Miuccia Prada brought Milan to a standstill last night with her Autumn Winter collection. Having built a two storey building at her Prada HQ, the audience was invited to view the models go up and down, and out again onto a regular catwalk. The collection was a mixed bag of different styles and references. The browny orange suede coats and jackets had diamond shapes in red inserted on the front and back, and brought about a certain Western feeling. This was counter parted by a big section of black and grey wool tailoring, some of it with buttoned up collars in a uniform style and others with over sized shoulder pads. The V-neck theme from last season was continued through knitwear with V-neck patterns and V shaped panels on suede jackets and nylon track suit tops. A few polo shirts with odd patterns and jodhpurs intrigued while glitter tops brought unexpected glamour to the Prada show.
