A process of stripping down clothing leads, inevitably, to the body, emphasized or exposed. Architecture is inherently tied to the body as shown through the recontextualization of ideas: the memory of a train, the bones of a corset, the curve of a brassiere. They are stripped to their bare essentials, their core while shaping our present. Traditional connotations of restriction are reconsidered, rethought, confronted. The body is freed and leaves space for a a vocabulary of elegance. The fantasy inherent in evening wear is counterbalanced by the reality of the everyday. Prada SS22 Collection not only unifies and reshapes ideas but shows us what the fashion of the future might look like: corresponding dialogues between realities and communities. Indeed, the show was staged, simultaneously, in the Deposito of the Fondazione Prada, Milan and in Bund 1, Shanghai.
