Prada – FALL 2021 MENSWEAR
Today instead we saw a menswear collection dominated by a garment that acted as a single motif that could, depending on your feeling, be worn, felt and seen in multiple ways. That garment was a knit patterned long john. Above the foundation of the model wearing it, a long john was the cladding upon which every look in the show was constructed (although sometimes that look went unadorned, all-long john). No one long john was the same; the patterns were sometimes art deco, sometimes adapted argyle, sometimes something else. Necklines varied from turtle to V to polo to round; yarns and ply spanned mohair, fine-gauge, Shetland and more.
