Miuccia Prada isn’t about making products to sell to people, she’s about telling a story. For SS19, her womenswear collection was about creating a dichotomy, between the liberated and the classic, the conventional and the extraordinary, which meant throwing back to iterations of the ‘60s and ‘70s with puffy, bow-topped headbands and towering platforms.
