When Miuccia Prada goes for a theme, she does it all the way. Case in point: the pistachio green and rose petal canapés that awaited showgoers and macaroon-painted walls to match the fondant hues of her Autumn/Winter collection. The silhouette was undeniably Sixties, with its A-line skirts, babydoll dresses, elbow-length gloves and block-heeled Mary Janes, but the vibe was fresh and up-to-date with the juxtaposition of synthetic fabrics like neoprene against the lady-like looks. Starting with shrunken suits in shades of mustard and pink and then moving into teal tweedy bracelet-sleeved jackets and cropped trousers, the collection evolved into a line-up of A-line skirts and double-breasted swing coats. Teamed with satin double-strap Mary Janes or go-go boots, top-handle bowling bags and jewelled hair brooches, all that was missing was Don Draper on the models' arms. The line-up closed with a series of empire-line tunic tops and jewelled babydoll dresses featuring decadent mink bows on shoulder straps - once again marking the contrast between high and low fabrics.

What they wore: A green shrunken jumper and a grey tailored coat.
