Prada always has some of the most interesting show spaces, and for this Fall/Winter 15, Miuccia really outdid herself. Called "The Infinite Palace", the venue transforms into a series of "room-within-a-room, with one seamlessly melding into the other. And, just like the uber-feminine collection, the room is one with the season's colour palette: pretty pastels, which are like a breath of fresh air, especially for the FW season. Actually, the colours really do remind me of macarons.
The RTW collection was full of Tweed, globular-like molecular prints that science/chemistry students should be familiar with, floral-themed embellishments that came in Perspex brooches for day, and as a jewelled motif for evening. That, coupled with the intergalactic sounding soundtrack at the beginning and the end, the sunglasses, the hair, and the fluorescent-lit "doorways" also gave off a sci-fi vibe. Sort of like a Jetsons debutante.
However, there only seemed to be one silhouette for the bags - a bauletto shape that we are all familiar with, a reinterpretation of yet another Prada classic. Whether in Saffiano leather with the molecular motif, exotic skins, or in soft nappa leather, just like the "room-within-a-room", the bags, totally unzipped, revealed another bag within the bag.
