Bauhaus took on new forms at Prada for Autumn/Winter 2014, punctuated with flame accents...
Inspired by German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, the first portion of the AW14 collection, which was accompanied by the sounds of Barbara Sukowa and an orchestra in a pit in the middle of the catwalk, included mannish coats and oversized grey jackets edged in fur that came over sheer whispy dresses teamed with wedge sandals or T-bar pumps. The jackets continued in shades of mustard and red with shaggy trims and wide, Seventies-style collars layered over silky knee-length dresses. Frocks with contrast piping and plunging front and back V-necks worn with shiny wedge knee-high boots (we love the red version) were the ultimate in Art Deco revival, but, as with anything Mrs Prada does, felt entirely fresh.
Who we saw: Anna Wintour.
What they wore: Prada, of course.
In three words: Fashion As Art.
