On Thursday in Milan, Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada continued to build on the joint codes they've established over the past almost-two years, while also looking further back on the history of Prada.

Titled "An Ideology of Prada," the Fall 2022 collection is filled with smart separates imbued with an almost modernist sensibility, enhanced by artful touches and decorative embellishments, like a sheer beaded layer that turns a mini into an ankle-length skirt, oversized paillettes sewn onto bomber jackets to create abstract blooming florals, or pastel faux-fur arm bands on peacoats. These feminine, often tactile add-ons make the pieces distinguishable, but not unwearable — and that's key for the design duo.

"We don't really want to just make pieces that are great in the context of a fashion show," Simons told Business of Fashion's Tim Blanks ahead of the show, to which Mrs. Prada added: "I always said I like eccentric pieces. But it is still possible they make sense in life."
The show notes elaborate: "Combinations of the quotidian and precious disturb the aesthetic vernacular of each. They simultaneously confer significance and emphasize reality, a fusion."
