At Prada, Subversive '60s Surfer Girls

It's funny how it happens—that fashions most influential thought leaders seem to mind meld and focus on a theme. This spring/summer 2019 season it seems to be surfing: first from Raf Simons at Calvin Klein, and now at Prada. And if Simons' surfer girl was was a Jaws fan, Muiccia Prada's had a Belle du Jour vibe. (Of course, Prada kick started the whole surfer trend several seasons ago.) 

There were '60s silhouettes, like baby doll dresses and double-breasted swing coats with sharp little collars. It had a whiff of subversive school girl dressing with sheer layers contrasted with prim bows and every look was capped off with an oversized jeweled headband (the street style accessory of next season to be sure). The surfing theme came across in tie-dye prints, printed neoprene-esque tops, and rash-guard like surf socks. Mrs. Prada never disappoints but it was one of her strongest collections to date.
