Best from the Catwalks: From a Knit Perspective

Missoni and Prada for me had it all wrapped up... and the best of the rest... well there was a definate politcal message. With many designers choosing to use the catwalk to vent a message of inclusivity and togetherness, A "rainbow world". This is highly commercial and one we will see filter through in both colour palette and slogan tee.

Prada, Menswear AW1718, Womens Preview

Miuccia Pradas’ AW1718 spoke volumes if you care to read between the artistic lines. Firstly unisex... with more women’s introduced at this traditionally “mens” time of year. We are not only loosing the seasons but the uniform of what is mens/womens. 
The 1970’s theme, one of quiet peaceful revolution, there was a clear left bank undertone. 
Then the nurturing of the unknown artist, with sweaters practically used as canvas, creativity could not have been more pronounced.  
This collection definitely leans more towards the poet laureate Bob Dylan than the White House wives.
