Prada Spring 2014 #MFW

"Miuccia Prada intention is always to find a new way to empower women through clothes. As she put it: "I was concerned with women and the strength of women. We are here, we are strong, we are visible, we are kind of fighters...I wanted to give encouragement, to be out there." She did this with every aspect of her show. The collection played out against a backdrop of awe-inspiring murals. Great, bold, emotive paintings of women by muralists El Mac, Mesa Gabriel Specter, Stinkfish, Jeanne Detailante and Pierre Mornet. Prada had commissioned these artists to do "something strong, to paint faces and bodies of women, but in the end they only painted faces, so I thought I had to provide the bodies." And provide she did." -
