some thinks fashion is superficial but for me it’s a land of eutopia where i can dwell in and linger over, to capture the sweetness, the pungence, the colour, the mood, and the emotion of the designer, and to censor the story and inspiration behind the collection. like life, and being a part of life, fashion should be a work of art. and like knowledge, the search of beauty is an innate and natural performance. 

always researching new ideas on beauty and femininity and the way it’s perceived in contemporary culture.

miuccia prada 








miuccia prada was born an upper-class milanese who loved expressing in gestures and talking politics. in combining her collection of earnest thoughts and frolic manners, she defined a new era of fashion with intelligence and charm. being a feminist, prada is “always researching new ideas on beauty and femininity and the way it’s perceived in contemporary culture”. her latest collections are a mixture of girlishness and masculinity, from bold shoulders to teddy-like clutch bags, to aviator style sunglasses and hats, not to mention the glittery trompe-l’œil heels and mermaid-like swaggers. Their femininity and playfulness ironically challenge masculinity with a heavy dose of 20’s, 60’s muse – important periods where feminism waned between.

It’s still feminine, but not in a romantic way. It’s all about masculine and feminine, and being strong.
