Prada has always amazed us with the wonderful selection of art meets fashion that graces the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week every year!
This season, Miuccia Prada has decided to introduce us to her Bauhaus inspired collection, that adds mystery and interesting cuts to the classic Italian fashion week. Masculine and boxy cuts combined with Prada’s best tailoring create true beauty through clothes. The creative process is astonishing and the designer never ceases to stun us with her reinterpretations of art trends and currents. Her color palette is eye-catching and we cannot wait to see how Anna Dello Russo will wear the new collection at the future fashion events. The collection is retro with style and Prada reinvents her woman every single year, bringing us new, powerful ways of representing her.
Now, because I have already used an artistic unexplained current when talking about Miuccia’s inspiration for the collection, I will give you a brief history of it.

Bauhaus, or Bauhaus Staatliches, is a German School of Design, that is famous for combining fine arts with crafts and which had a new and different approach to design. It was the first design academy in the world, opened by Walter Gropius in the city of Weimar. The school operated from 1919 until 1933, when the Nazi regime pressured the school’s leadership to close it down as it was believed that it was a centre of communist intellectualism.

“The underlying idea of the Bauhaus, which was formulated by Walter Gropius, was to create a new unity of crafts, art and technology. The intention was to offer the right environment for the realisation of the Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art). To this end, promising artists were to be taught in a school with an interdisciplinary and international orientation. The Bauhaus curriculum therefore offered a unique combination of research, teaching and practice that was unequalled by rival academies and schools of applied art.”(www.bauhaus-online.de)
The artistic current has a special role to play in the history of Modern art and design present in the 20th century. It has revolutionized ideas about interior design and architecture, but it is also a constant source of inspiration in all arts. It is an idea concentrated on minimalism, on less experimentation and on the use of the raw geometric shapes to create an artistic product.
Now let’s talk about the trends!
The boxy jacket trend seems to be a recurring trend. Every year, there is at least a designer to do something of this kind.For this kind of a jacket, think about the beauty of harder materials, that stay in the perfect boxy shape and create a sort of a disheveled look, combined with an aura of mystery.

Let’s talk about colors
Color combination and coordination are 2 of Miuccia’s best qualities in any collection. She can feel the colors and she manages to blend them in perfectly in awesome, sometimes weird combinations that truly catch your attention. This season, do not be afraid to let your colors shine, it will truly brighten your day. Combine weird, complementary colors and don’t hesitate to try some combinations you have never thought worked.

This season it is announced to be quite printtastic. Prada knew that beforehand and her inspiration from the Bauhaus current is very well seen through the prints used on materials. This season, Prada stands as proof that prints work on anything, even in combination. Don’t be afraid to experiment with them and catch the attention of everyone on the street.

A collection of sheers
The Prada woman has always had a different level of sexyness that attracts the buyer. This collection did not let us down. This myriad of sheers creates the interesting, mysterious, yet overly interesting woman and gives us a different insight on the combination of materials that has this as a result. It looks amazing and it is yet another way to experiment, coming from Miuccia.
