The Prada man

Miuccia Prada always remains very discreet about her inspirations. A hint for this 2017 winter show: just put the current extravagance found in the men’s fashions together with the basics. In contrast, she puts the accent on semi-precious jewelry in the mixtures in which she excels. Necklaces are made of cord, shells, crystals, fur, tree branches, and even some silver used for a parrot’s head.
