Even more than six months since it’s initial announcements, Prada Spring/Summer 2021 womenswear collection by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons remained one of the most expected moments in the fashion industry right now.
The Italian luxury house has opted for a no-audience runway, following social distancing guidelines, to present the new collection, unveiled with a lookbook as well as a specially recorded runway video. The collection of 40 looks was unfold then on prada.com.
The collection embodied a striking mix of the two designers and their signature aesthetic. Yellow in addition to the already welcomed Prada total black dominated the new collection while label’s signature prints were mixed in with Raf Simons graphic treatments in a number of looks.

The collection was full of style signatures Simons has established through his other work: coats clutched in a hand (seen at Jil Sander), turtlenecks throttled with logos at the neck (Calvin Klein), beautiful color play (Dior) and even the instantly-covetable graphic sweatshirts (his own menswear line).
And while they feel one hundred percent Simons, they’re melded seamlessly with Prada’s own established codes.
And the Prada Spring/Summer 2021 womenswear collection centered as well around the uniform.
I was thinking of how I have perceived Prada over 25 years, and one thing that came out instantly was uniform. A uniform gives a sense of community. In a context of reduction, the idea of a uniform is a representation of longevity. In all honesty, I have been looking at Miuccia, how she is dressed, her uniform. It is what she finds importantstated Raf Simons
