Milan Fashion Week started on Tuesday, but it didn’t really kick off until Thursday, when Miuccia Prada sat fashion’s brightest peacocks down on an army of blow-up chairs of the sort they probably had in their childhood bedrooms. Though they probably weren’t located in the halls of the Fondazione Prada, where the designer showcased Prada’s spring/summer 2019 very primary school-friendly collection, complete with tie-dyed pleated skirts, buttoned-up dress shirts and pea coats, and sheer knee-highs, stamped with the house’s signature triangle. Not that everything, of course, was so dress code-friendly: for every silky oversized headband, there was another one covered in studs, or at the very least a pair of sunglasses large enough to easily obscure half of a model’s entire face. (That’s right, Toto: We definitely aren’t in The Matrix anymore.) Take it all in up-close with a look behind the scenes, here.
