Description
Love isn't always pretty, but it can always beautiful, albeit while scary. This was the idea Prada pushed forth in her Fall 2019 show during Milan Fashion Week. From the hardness of military-dressing to the delicacy of flowers and lace, Prada combined these tropes to create a line that highlighted multiple sides to love, even one that's not often showed.

A violin cover of Lady Gaga‘s “Bad Romance” lingered on as models strut down the runway. The song is a unique and slightly surprising choice for a soundtrack, but what can one expect on a Prada show? In a way, Miuccia Prada did showcase a ‘bad’ type of romance for her Fall 2019 show, one that continued the Frankenstein-inspired narrative she introduced in Fall 2019 Menswear collection. Love was a huge talking point, and all of the stereotypical and intellectual tropes were all on full display: flowers and lace with hints of utilitarianism and horror. The duality she presented was not only challenging but also intriguing, in it that romance can be something beyond the beautiful and glimmering artifice that most people are used to. Here, even the more tender tropes were quite rigid, with flowers sticking out in a hard 3D effect and lace being so rustic they almost looked Sicilian (Prada is from North Italy). In a way, this strangeness is a sort of refuge—as many of Prada’s collections are—from today’s scary world. In order to face it, you’re going to have to be scary yourself, but not without sacrificing the love you have inside you.
