MIUCCIA PRADA doesn’t do things by accident and the Spring/Summer 2018 Resort Collection was no exception; guests dined on saffron risotto at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II before satiating their sweet tooth on cakes at the Marchesi pastry shop; models walked to the tone of Bilitis music; and pink-hued lighting (the front row’s very own real-life Instagram filter) was a pathetic fallacy for the nymph-like looks that followed. It was slow fashion delivered in a fast way, remaining loyal to Prada's past whilst quenching the continuous consumer need for new offerings.
From crisp pantsuits in ivory white to a new take on the trench, spring's latest in workwear is nothing short of stylish.

How to Wear It
Skipping the standard fashion show benches, Prada instead had guests sit on furry beds for its Fall 2017 show today.
The set looked a lot like your dream bedroom in high school: pink furry beds, poster-filled walls, Polaroids everywhere and of course, green cactuses as additional decor (for today's cool Instagram teens, of course).
It's bed time at #Prada fashion show location! 💕

As a whole, the set featured multiple bedrooms separated by wooden walls that served as a winding runway for the models. From magazine cut-outs to Polaroids of friends and posters of Prada's Fall 2017 ads, the fashion house really nailed the whole cool teen aesthetic perfectly.
Just call Miuccia Prada William Morris, because judging by her 2017 menswear collection (don't worry—ladies' clothes were present), she's deep in her Arts and Crafts stage. Though the mood might be described as "Don Draper and friends when they were obsessed with sideburns and earth tones," there are fresh ideas about office wear to be distilled from the 54-look effort, the seven most pertinent of which we analyze here.
Inside Prada's show space at Via Fogazzaro, Muiccia Prada showed her Spring 2017 collection that, in short, could be described as a series of spectacularly fine, feathered moments. Here's what you need to know about the '70s-inspired collection.
Many familiar faces walked the runway, but they weren't who you'd expect.
Instead of stacking the catwalk with a bunch of Insta-models, Prada went with who she knew: truly iconic Prada models likes Liya Kebede, Raquel Zimmermann, Fei Fei Sun, and Arizona Muse.
Would you rather cut your hair super short or risk losing your place in the Prada lineup?
That's the dilemma we pondered backstage in Milan as six brave models put their hair on the chopping block for Redken's Guido Palau. "The look is a very clean, very simple bob for some of the girls," Palau says. "It calls back to Prada's early days, when girls would have that freshly cut hair in the '90s, but it's also a bit new and futuristic in its simplicity."
