Prada Men Fashion show FW12, all star power

Power is around every corner in this FW12 Prada Men’s show. True that Gary Oldman walking the red carpet exaggerates the tension, but i have to admit the clothes itself and the styling is still generating the power originally.

Miuccia Prada always brings us surprises whenever new collection launches. This time she gives us gentlemen from the post World War II with an Victorian accent – white turtleneck underneath, double breast long coat and pocket ornaments.

Despite everything about power women and unisex thing, suits are Men’s fate. No fussy, just the tailored cut, with minimal ornament and cordial colour. Madame Prada shows us the chicest accessories possible on pockets, sunglasses, check! Floral neckpiece, check! Brooch, check! Yes! We almost forget all these little things for a gentlemen.

And yes we are so blind to explore the subtlety of colour, how pinstripes and graphic pattern could possibly become to harmony.

After all these gentlemen’s package, the outfit itself generate power, the power of neatness, power of a la mode, power of formality.

    I agree, the inclusion of so many actors and prominent men did help enhance the masculinity and power the collection exerts. I really loved the collection and the venue set-up (in awe).

    The collection made me think of aphoristic films, Defoe and Brody looked like Runway Villains. It was just so captivating.
