Prada‘s latest Spring/Summer 2018 Prada Man collection is nothing short of a dream from the 1980’s. If you’re ready for a kick of nostalgia, they’ve got just the pieces for you.
Prada is a brand that is endlessly reaching back in time to bring us fresh visions on style’s past. Their Spring/Summer Prada Man 2018 collection is a mix of comic-strip pop culture, yuppie chic, and pure 80s cool.
Creating each collection is about art as much as it is the style for Miuccia Prada, and this collection was no exception. The designer’s theme for menswear 2018 was “a story within a story” and through the vision of comic strips and graphic novels, the venue, as well as some of the pieces, were covered in fragments of narratives that kept the mind guessing.
As you could expect from an 80s inspired collection, it was full of bright colors, graphic prints, and skinny belts. Although it was awry with the quirkiness we have all come to know and love from the brand, and the classic pieces were present as well. Slimline suits with black striping along the inside leg in colors of olive and salmon were among favorites, as well as impeccably tailored trenches, woolen coats, and striped cardigans. Some of our favorite pieces from the show, (pictured below) can be mixed and matched for a modern look that is sure to stand the test of time.
Although there were no trendy rompers in the collection, there were some tailored shorts and even some utilitarian jumpsuits thrown into the mix for those wanting to go for something more off the cuff.
Overall, the Prada Man S/S 18 collection was as edgy and yet classic as we expected. Miuccia always knows the perfect balance for her consumers, and we expect to see many of these pieces on the streets next spring.
