Prada Unveils Collaborative Autumn/Winter Men’s Collection by Designers Simons and Prada
Luxury fashion brand Prada has officially released the Lookbook for its highly anticipated 2023 autumn and winter men’s collection. This season, the collection was a joint effort between designers Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada, reflecting their shared vision and creativity. Through their innovative designs, Simons and Prada showcased their understanding of the brand’s classic aesthetic combined with a touch of futurism.
Simons explained, “This collection explores the concept of prototype clothing. Recognizable elements are transformed through unique tailoring and artistic arrangements that alter their visual language. These changes are deeply rooted in Prada’s DNA. We have incorporated Prada’s iconic logo into the garments, paying homage to the brand’s rich heritage and history while also embracing its contemporary significance.”
Prada’s co-designer, Miuccia Prada, emphasized the importance of addressing real-world concerns through fashion. “As designers, we are acutely aware of the realities and challenges we face in society. We aim to create something meaningful and useful for people through our garments. Fashion has the power to express ideas and reflect the truth of our time. This is what fashion should stand for in today’s world.”
The essence of Prada can be seen throughout the collection, with each piece featuring refined tailoring and vibrant pops of color. Simons’ signature clean and masculine style is evident, particularly in the design of the brushed leather sneakers, crafted from cycling fabric. The sneakers come in three colors: black, light yellow, and pomegranate, all embodying the distinct “Raf” aesthetic infused with Prada’s sensibility and understated elegance.
The collection also includes luxurious mohair wool coats and cashmere cardigans with colorful printed collars. Sand and green dress coats, stretch natté trousers, and wool cashmere cardigans in pastel shades are all crafted with the same meticulous attention to detail. Additionally, Prada’s autumn and winter padded vests showcase futuristic elements, while suede coats and tunic tops pay homage to Simons’ distinctive style.
