Where the runway meets the street

A highlight of the Milan Fashion Week schedule, Prada unveiled its SS17 collection in the vast intergalactic space hangar that is its HQ’s show space. In typical Prada style, the house’s look was based on clashing prints and awkward-cool styling. Plaid blazers, box-pleated skirts, wrap pencil skirts, turtle necks and tons of those aforementioned print combos made for big geek chic vibes — which is Prada’s bread and butter, really — and the leather safari jacket (pic #11) packed serious artsy punch.

Those looks were then given a whole lot of fabulous sass thanks to the miles of ostrich feathers that exploded from various models’ sleeves, legs and feet — how’s that for a set of statement pieces?

Prada is one of the most intellectual names on the high fashion circuit — its SS17 looks veered from from Harvard-educated librarian to sassy poolside gallerist — but the gleeful use of fluff and feather showed us that Miuccia and co. aren’t afraid to have a bit of fun, either.

For more from Milan Fashion Week, feast your eyes on Gucci’s decadent SS17 extravaganza (or even better, see what Gucci Mane thinks of the collection).
