After co-signed the Spring/Summer 2021 revealed last September, the duo had signed this season an unusual and stimulating collection, redefining the menswear codes in resonance with the profound upheavals we are currently experiencing due to the global pandemic.
So, unexpectedly, they chose long johns as the defining garment in their charming, intriguing Fall/Winter lineup.
Prada and Simons put these warming undergarments under every outfit in the collection. The duo interpreted the underwear to create a wide range of other designs. All knitted, they came in different textures and a variety of jacquard motifs, sometimes art deco, sometimes adapted argyle, sometimes something else.
Tactility and color were two others main elements in the lineup while the volumes were cocooning and sculptural. Pieces came in different materials and in striking color combinations, including purple and jade green, as well as red and black.
We worked with color juxtapositions to express warmth and sensitivity, even with bold tonesRaf Simons
