main (53) Maison Margiela mr porter prada

By this point in the year, if you’re not familiar with the shirting heat coming in from one Italian fashion house in particular, we can only assume you’ve been in hiding. With flames-adorned offerings rocked by Pusha-T and various half-and-half prints dominating events such as Copenhagen Fashion Week SS19, Prada is not messing around this season.

This new FW18 iteration of the ‘Impossible True Love’ shirt that debuted a few years back (and was received with much hype after being worn by none other than Virgil Abloh, A$AP Rocky, and Kanye West) goes further to button up Prada’s lead in this field.

The camp-collar bowling shirt features a futuristic take on a graphic print of Cleopatra and Elvis Presley kissing beneath a starry sky. A new iteration of on the original design by Berlin artist Christophe Chemin, the abstract green and purple palate highlights the piece as the ultimate flex statement for the season ahead.

Take a look at the shirt in all its glory below, and click through for an undeniably head-turning cop.

Before checking out, heed some styling advice. The shirt is statement enough, so set off your look with some of Prada’s lower-key pieces. Also shown for FW18, these wide-leg shorts are lightly padded and finished with the Prada signature in Saffiano leather, while the bucket hat is an elevated take on a streetwear staple. Do as A$AP Rocky would do with your sneakers and roll with the futuristic vibes — Maison Margiela’s glue-covered Fusion will really make this ’fit pop.
