Miuccia Prada clearly has work on the brain. Her most recent Miu Miu show was “back to work” themed, however inexplicable that is when you juxtapose it with the actual clothes that came down the runway, and now she and Raf Simons have whipped up a menswear season called Body of Work which, per Vogue, employs “the hierarchy of workwear as its baseline assignment while echoing against the body of work of both its designers.” It continues:
[T]his show employed its cast to role play masculine archetypes whose relative status by occupation was both delineated and disrupted by their uniforms. As Prada said in a pre-written quote released after the show: “We were thinking about meaningful fashion, pieces that make sense. Clothes that make people feel important.” She added: “The collection celebrates the idea of working—in all different spheres and meanings. It is a practical, everyday thing. But here, you are formally important. You are not casual.”
I will never NOT get the giggles when a designer’s “Aha!” moment is, “pieces that make sense.” INDEED. We can only dream.
