Raf Simons' latest menswear collection for Prada took a new direction for AW22 leading with the shoulders. The austere and strong shouldered leather coats are graphic and cartoony in their geometry. Raf Simons always does a good coat. Looking very villain-in-a-Gotham City/Art Deco-way, it brought to mind the art deco portrait of artist Tamara de Lempicka's husband.
Surrounded by 1930s skyscrapers, this brooding and moody portrait features Tadeusz de Lempicki in a strong shouldered double-breasted coat. The long Prada AW22 version looks protective, and much like armour, with the reflective leather giving it an even more intimidating feel. Start saving, this will be big £££.
