Prada’s Deconstructed Seafaring Victorians

By Emory Lopiccolo

January 19, 2016

For its fall/winter 2016 collection, Prada updated a classic seafaring Victorian look with modern, deconstructed flourishes. Both male and female models strolled down the runways wearing traditional sailor hats paired with boxy, sharp-edged capes, two-toned loafers, and shearling-lined plaid coats.

Each look takes the collection a little bit farther away from seafaring and closer to a cut-up cool. Unbuttoned shirts were layered underneath jackets with mismatched colors, and just-too-long sleeve cuffs grazed the knuckles of the nonchalant models. In one notable look, the model wears an oversized white blouse with collaged still life oil paintings of fruit attached by buttons. The shirt hangs casually over patterned knit tights, and was paired with a minimal white leather handbag, and velvet two-toned pumps.

For the men, small leather buckled wallets adorned with brass skeleton keys were clipped to belts and coat pockets. Although there was a lot going on with the combination of front-laced capes, brightly color accessories, and deconstructed shirts, the collection stayed grounded with classic trousers and leather loafers. Overall, Prada’s fall/winter 2016 line was a refreshing example of the creative fluidity between men’s and women’s wear. While the looks may be borrowed from the boys, Prada 2016 looks just as good on the girls.
