Will Miuccia Prada ever get over her subversive tailoring, her suggestive sensuality and her surreal accessories?
Let's hope not!
For the designer (absent from her show because of a family bereavement), produced a splendid collection that was, as ever, a wink-of-an-eye ode to womanhood.
From bauble earrings through to prim mesh shoulder coverings down to pointed-toe shoes with a shiny ball for decoration, this is the Prada that everyone wants to see: modern tailoring with more twists than a snake's tail.
Dressed in a parody of workwear clothes, the models stepped out in precise jackets and tidy skirts, with colour and texture playing a powerful role.
The most sober of striped suits was offset by golden lips, gilded stripes and those dainty, pointed-toe shoes.
Prada had a transparency — figuratively and literally — to her message. A neat jacket would suddenly appear with a translucent skirt as though the sexual temptation of female legs was making a surreal appearance.
At the same time, a translucent raincoat or a silken dress were more regular elements of a woman's wardrobe.
Prada's ability to get under the skin or inside the head of the modern woman is uncanny. And that is why this exceptional designer is repeatedly leader of the fashion pack.
