The Pret-a-Porter runway shows for the Winter of 2019 are just about to finish. Mimi Berlin is very fond of prints and thus noticed a mini trend: How to make your summer flowers suitable for the winter season? Use huge bright flowers and place them on a black background. Add black and yellow solids, and, presto! You have yourself a wonderful and easy to sell capsule-collection.
Mimi Berlin watched the Prada show via livestream (prada.com) in the comfort of her own headquarters (praise technology!) and she has something to say about that fashion show. In a nutshell; first impression published on instagram.
And we’re off to the convention center. Which is also our holiday spot for this year. We are global citizens, wordly wanderers. We are proteced from the cold by High-tech gear, we don’t need socks. Our summer outfits are padded and printed. Our work-wear is made from padded nylon and other thick high-tech cloth (or is that wool?) the colors are in tonal hues of black, yellow, purple, brown and green.

We know it get’s kind of old: us, at Mimi Berlin, drooling over Prada each season again. But, c’mon! This season Ms Prada did it again!
She created this wonderful woman with so much visual personalities (this within one theme: yes a theme, we know that’s not “fashionable” nowadays but it is what it is: Forties Nostalgia) A sailor, a souvenir-doll, a tom-boy, a nurse, a pin-up, a lady, a tattoo artist, and the actual tattoo: all in one girl!
We don’t know how many models walked the runway but there wasn’t a similar outfit to be seen, still Miuccia Prada showed one persona. That seems unreal, but it’s not, it’s actually a very adequate illustration of what women (and men) are: Humans, with jobs, memories, hopes, needs etc. Pretty genius for a fashion show; remember we are looking at clothes! (and some darn fine craftsmanship and styling).
