The Menswear collection for Fall-Winter 21 co-designed by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons takes as its basis an intimate and personal desire for contact, our desire for exchange and relationship. Made possible right now, thanks to the use of technology

"We used the idea of creating a virtual space, thanks to architecture and technology, which was neither external but internal" say Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons in a Q&A after the show. Through the questions of school students from all over the world, the two creatives have explored what is behind this collection that plays on tactility. The need to touch and feel that we miss so much is interpreted by the use of fabrics that enhance feelings of pleasantness: from knitwear to jaquard, from re-nylon (the famous recycled nylon from Prada) to tweed bouclé, from wool to velvet, up to to the soft and lined leather everything is cozy, enveloping. The silhouettes shrink and widen in a sixties cross-temporal style in the geometric patterns, nineties in the shapes, while the palette ranges from darker colors to more accented ones (red and purple), especially for bombers with generous volumes. The "long johns" in jacquard knit appear, creating a fluid "second skin", enriched by overlapping turtlenecks and jackets, in a game of layering and different textures. A particular note on the presence of punk pink, even for accessories, such as gloves in leather with a front pocket inserted. The interaction of the video show, accompanied by dancing interludes, is projected outwards, towards the sequence of environments that the models walk through during the show. The “non-spaces” of the show, designed by Rem Koolhaas and AMO, are defined by panels of marble, resin, plaster and “faux fur” or fake fur, the same material also inserted in the necks of the maxi double-breasted peacots of the show.
