From all the big fashion houses – meaning with sales of more than one billion Euros a year – the only one who is completely committed to design and innovation is Prada. Hardly ever does one hear about DNA or signature pieces from the company, as the mantra is always to push forward. Most refreshingly, Prada does not even have press releases for its shows as they speak for themselves. So the sneaker category was lacking recently and what do they do? They come up with a new version, which is an entirely new design from everything else that is out there. For her latest men’s show, Miuccia Prada invited some of her favorite collaborators like Rem Koolhaas and Herzog/De Meuron plus the German Konstantin Grcic to play with a Prada totem: black nylon. Held in a warehouse, the show was a major statement embracing the uniform.
