Per Sally Singer at Vogue:
For lovers of Prada, this is the dream wardrobe: elegant, irreverent, unapologetically pretty, and devoid of conceptual gimmicks. What makes it fresh is how it is worn: Every look involves a mix of textures (macramé, straw, velvet, calf, patent, rope, bugle beads, paillettes) and context (a waft-y beach dress with a solid pump, an office suit with a macramé holiday bag, a silk cocktail dress with a whopping snakeskin platform).
For Miuccia Prada, these juxtapositions mean everything for Spring. Her starting point for this collection was that “the person should be more important than the clothes,” and further, that “personal style is more important than clothes.” She was also hoping to make a point about simplicity, non-disposability, and “doing less.” Timeless hipness is the goal here: Invest wisely in a few items and wear how you like, anywhere and with anything. Grab some shells and call them pearls.
Let’s whip through the offerings and see if she made good on that aim.
