Italian fashion house Prada looked to the waves for inspiration for FW16 and presented us with a nostalgic, nautical-themed collection with yet another heavy dose of the ’70s.

The runway models were decked out in sailor hats and wide-lapeled coats that looked like high-fashion naval uniforms. Meanwhile, detached, dangling collars and hoods deconstructed the looks somewhat, while the grey, brown and beige palette made heavy reference to the good old days, back when people really dressed to travel.

French artist and relative unknown Christophe Chemin was brought in as a collaborator, and his drawings of battling animals and mythical beasts are splashed across a number of oversized dress shirts that appear throughout the collection.

This is a stark contrast to Prada's SS16 campaign, which was inspired by New York nightclubs, but every bit as opulent and glamorous as you'd expect from the house.
