How does a feminist reconcile herself with the superficial world of fashion? It’s a question that Miuccia Prada has grappled with for decades, often playing with the paradox on the runway. This season, her answer was to arm women with a commanding elegance, executed in plumes of Marabou feathers, ’70s-inspired prints, and laid-back feminine silhouettes. On this clutch, unabashedly girly florals mix with geometric motifs in intrepid hues, illustrating a tension between flirtatiousness and strength. The piece stands out in the face of conformity.
