Flower Fantasia

BUILDING ON HER SHOW THEME “SYNTHETIC FANTASIA”, MIUCCIA PRADA THIS SEASON CONJURES UP A WORLD IN WHICH WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT NECESSARILY WHAT YOU GET. LIKE THE MULTI-LAYERED REALITY IN TWIN PEAKS OR THE OBSCURE ARTIFICE OF THE STEPFORD WIVES, HER COLLECTION PORTRAYS AN EERIE VIBE OF ARTIFICIAL INNOCENCE.

The floral brooches that feature dominantly in the show look like two-dimensional paper cut-outs. Instead the layered, pastel-coloured, Perspex floral shaped brooches are highly crafted and completed with a vintage-like gemstone breastpin. Like over sized, colourful shadows of otherwise delicate Chrystal flower clips the brooches convey a youthful energy as seen through a kaleidoscope of sorts. Imagine a game of dress-up in a robotic mannequin factory set in the future, but programmed to the creator’s favourite era: the 1960’s – science meets retro-notions of beauty, creating a look that is familiar and yet completely unexpected. It is in this way that Prada leaves you with a slightly haunting feeling. The floral brooches, like the varying ideas of beauty, are the personification of a man-made concept of beauty. They don’t hide their artifice. As if asking what is real?, what do we control?, what controls us?, Prada creates an ode to the future in which she champions the possibilities of 21st century and where it may lead us.
