Prada Went Full Frankenstein For FW19

Monster mash.

Miuccia awoke the beast last night in a Prada collection that riffed off Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. “A tension between the human sensitivity and the dangerous roughness of life,” the shows description reads on instagram — a very real sentiment.

The collection brought electric furs, architectural belting, extreme lab shoes, latex, lightning bolts and hearts pinned to chests. “Frankenstein is an example of a monster with a big heart, so that was the main idea,” Miuccia said.

“Basically it had to be a romantic show. And mainly I was interested in the understanding of humanity: weakness and the more delicate and naked aspects of humanity also. The rejected… the one who doesn’t have a career. It was set against a very tough world—that is why war and military was in the air.”
