Brand: Prada

Season: Fall/Winter 2022

Editor's Notes: Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons are still vibing, it seems.

The duo just debuted Prada's latest, a smart collection that mined the house's plentiful archive for inspiration. Balancing nostalgia and direction, the sartorial masters reinvented several Prada specialities for 2022.

Sweaters were knit with modernist prints in clash-y colors. Luxe embellishments including three-dimensional flowers, brightly colored faux fur trim, and shiny paillettes were applied with a judicious hand to separates and outerwear. Models in V-necked cashmeres and pleated wool skirts exuded a special brand of cerebral sex appeal championed by Miuccia since the late '70s.

In addition to showing "glances at a Prada past" (per the collection's show notes), the house also ventured into entirely new territory with several envelope-pushing pieces destined for magazine covers and editorials aplenty (maybe not as many as Miuccia's now-infamous skirt set, though).

The humble white tank top was Prada-ified with the label's triangular, metal emblem. The micro-mini — a key piece for FW22, it seems — was given a dose of faux modesty, elongated via panels of sheer, nearly see-through fabric. Nylon bombers and shearling aviator jackets were blown up to ultra-oversized proportions, burying the entire wrist and hand in extra-long sleeves.

Also noteworthy: the show's cast. All the girls showed up and out, including Liya Kebede, Arizona Muse, Erin O'Connor, Hannelore Knuts, Kaia Gerber, Hunter Schafer, and Kendall Jenner.

Even Kim Kardashian, a celebrity one wouldn't immediately peg as a Prada girl, sat front row.

A star-studded affair, indeed — and one that will certainly occupy a special place in Prada's archives.
