Sporty yet feminine. Delicate yet bold. Soft yet powerful. Such are the juxtapositions that come to mind after viewing Prada’s Resort ’18 runway collection.
This collection is everything that I love about fashion. Nothing in this show felt predictable and I felt breathless in anticipation to see more of the collection. Each look in itself was harmoniously balanced, and the overall collection worked to convey a grounded sense of strength and determination. The colour palette is youthful with its pastel tones, but the collection is mature in its silhouettes and structure. This is a collection for the ambitious women of the world – fearless in the pursuit of pushing personal expression and style to the limit.
I especially love that Prada chose not to go down the path of flowy traditional beach/resort wear as seen in other resort collections. This collection re-writes the definition of resort into an inclusive category not solely reserved for those on holiday in exclusive settings.
Here I’ve rounded up my 20 favourite looks from the Prada Resort ’18 collection. I must admit, I prefer this collection to the Chanel Resort ’18 looks from my earlier post. It’s captivating and fresh.
