Prada Mens SS25 in Milan

Prada Men’s Liberates the Spirit with Spring/Summer 2025

Titled “Closer,” the latest collection designed by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons was an ode to that sublime space between reality and fantasy, a dreamlike realm where anything is possible if you dare to stop and take a closer look.

This week in Milan, Prada Men’s debuted a dashing spring/summer 2025 menswear runway show within a futuristic fairytale at the Deposito of Fondazione Prada. The collection designed by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons was titled “Closer,” and was full of color, detail and dynamism.

Swirls of white laminated runway led up to a mod picket fence and a small, sleek house set aglow from the inside in a cosmic shade of blue. From this pure symbol of human shelter, where we begin and end our days, a serene utopia of untapped vitality unfurled.

Vibrantly colored garments in candy-colored hues of pink, yellow, green, and blue reflected our contemporary urge to connect to and inspire one another—an homage to this shared experience of life on bountiful Mother Earth. 

When taken in at a distance, jackets, sweaters, and trousers may appear simplistic, but upon closer inspection, dazzling and meticulous details abound. Collars and hems were wired for dynamic movement, transforming daily rituals into moments of fluidity and theatricality

Charming creases and patinas washed over nimble suiting and powerful leather jackets, invoking days of yore, and all at once then and now became the limitless future. 

Hand-Me-Down Wardrobes Inspire a New, Provocative Play on Proportions 

Energized by a re-styling of hand-me-down wardrobes carrying the spirit of those loved and admired, a zestful play of proportions ensued. 

A relaxed, toffee-hued jumpsuit was embellished with graphic pink zippers, while low slung trousers were enhanced by vintage-inspired belts which raced well below the waist. 

Softened and tasseled loafers were juxtaposed with a sporty backpack and an elongated lime green shirt, set off with a pleasingly scrunched collar. Worn open, daring to bare the sheerness of skin, a gentle navy trench and black pants grounded the beguiling look.

A red and blue “superhero” sweater appeared as both elementary and avant-garde, as did petite leather carrying cases with burnished edges, and a striped shirt whose lines artistically ebbed and flowed like ebullient waves at sea. 

Bernard Buffet paintings stood out on the rewritten concert tee, placing the French painter’s haunting figurative style front and center as a collage of aging and youthful mystery, distortion, and desire. Sweeping, mirrored sunglasses, slick metal-toe laced loafers, and socks in pops of purple or peach, culminated in a crisp rhapsody of rumination, contradiction, and lust for life, liberated by Prada

About the Fondazione Prada

Fondazione Prada, a cultural institution created in 1993 by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli, operates in the belief that art and study are useful and necessary to understand the changes that take place in the world through unpublished and engaging perspectives.

As President and Director Miuccia Prada points out, “from the beginning through the activities of the Foundation I wanted to address the investigation of human culture in its variety and complexity. Over the course of these thirty years I have questioned myself in various forms how artistic and intellectual research can affect people’s lives. Seeking increasingly current answers to this question is the Foundation’s fundamental purpose.”
In the first two decades of activity, the Foundation has commissioned utopian projects and monographs in Italy and abroad to recognized international figures, established and emerging artists. Since 2002, until then unexplored research paths have also been undertaken by presenting philosophy conferences, architectural exhibitions and initiatives dedicated to cinema. — Fondazione Prada
