Wherever there's sport, there's Prada. Prada Linea Rossa, to be specific. Whether the athletes are snowboarding or playing some form of space-age table tennis that involves flat paddles, Prada Linnea Rossa fits right in.
For Spring/Summer 2022, the Prada sub-label is repped by models playing that exact form of next-gen table tennis, demonstrating the inherent versatility of Prada Linea Rossa's garments.
Sure, the uninitiated may not think of ping pong as an endurance sport but anyone who's ever watched high-level play knows well that this game demands ultimate freedom of movement. Anything that even remotely constricts the body is useless.
So it goes for all warm-weather clothing, really.
Prada Linea Rossa's trim, lightweight SS22 garments allow for entirely unhindered mobility, their technical textiles only enhancing the capabilities of the everyday seasonal uniform.
For instance, the base layers are cut from a bio-ceramic polyester piquet that balances the body's internal temperature irrespective of environment.
Prada also introduces a new nylon this season that's woven from threads made of castor plant seeds. The resulting miracle fiber is simultaneously lightweight, wear-resistant, and antibacterial, requiring none of the care demanded of its organic peers.
The futuristic feel is only further informed by the red-striped metallic silver track sets and sleeveless hooded vest, an easy layering piece with buttons and toggles that appear as if borrowed from the yachts piloted by the Luna Rossa sailing team who partially inspired Prada's Linea Rossa line.
Speaking of the sailors, Prada Linea Rossa is also ushering in a new era for Prada's signature America's Cup sneaker by way of the AC Factory customization program.
Accessible on Prada Linea Rossa's website and Prada stores, the AC Factor tool allows users to revamp the America's Cup from leather to laces, with a spread of colors and even embossed initials available.
Truly, this is the future.
