Tie-dye, one of fashion’s biggest trends from the mid-60s made a comeback in early 2019. Brands like Prada, 205W39NYC, Stella McCartney and more explored new designs with the technique, retaining its notable patterns of mandalas and spirals. The designs of a tie-dyed material often resemble water swirls.
This Green and white cotton shirt from Prada was part of the fashion house’s Spring Summer 2019 Collection and features a tie-dye print in a bright green colourway. Prada since then continued with the use of tie-dye prints on shirts and several pieces, but this one from SS19 definitely is one of the best pieces that came out of the style.
For Spring Summer 2019 Collection, Muiccia Prada and her team continued to embrace fashionable contradictions and subversion. Miuccia's intention for the show was to be straightforward. “I like to use simple, banal words,” she said, “because sometimes people, not only in fashion, in general, in politics, they invent so much stuff - Try to be honest.”
The runway had a lot of sexiness in the forefront, not only because of the super short pants that the men wore but also because of the excellent cuts that did adorn the models. Miuccia wanted to focus on the precise detail of the clothes, which is seen in the construction of the pants. They had form, with a removable belt and front pleat, but they also had slouch and the cut was pretty baggy. It was as if the pants were deciding whether or not to flare. They didn’t tho.
A good Prada show never misses some outstanding graphics, that’s why SS19 featured a line of trippy statue graphics in vivid 70’s type colors, with often saturated primaries and acid tones featured on shirt and tracksuits.
The fashion house once again brought a young, futuristic vision to the forefront of Milan Fashion Week.
