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).

The Resort 2016 shows for women came before the men’s pret-a-porter Spring 2016 fashion shows. What these “seasons” have in common is the (Chinese) Silk Satin BomberJacket. For men it is Louis Vuitton who really embraced this jacket the most: The Bomber’s were full force shiny, bright colored or in pastels and heavily embroidered. As you can see in the images above, LV was certainly not the only fashion house to show this garment. The jackets for women are more demure, and with a little less frequency seen. Also the fit is more retro eighties: Cropped to the waist. Maybe we’ll see them more and embelleshed at the women’s pret-a-porter shows for Spring 2016? We think so! For sure!
