Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s film ‘Lola’, inspired Prada’s Fall collection, with a huge focus on German avant-garde culture. The film, which deals with Lola from the best cabaret-whorehouse in a German city, comes alive through various silhouettes. The color palette was very colorful + bright, similar to the many sets + shots throughout the film.
Oversized coats paired with jersey over-the-knee dresses + sheer sack dresses suspended from metallic strips + others decorated with bits of long-hair shearling, immortalized the seductress catering to ‘Lola’s’ varied clientele, of low or high class. Other looks made up of a baggy chevron V-neck + high-necked geometric print shirtdress, gave the impression of a smart woman in control, with her sex appeal still intact, no matter how little skin was showing. Above all else though, my favorite part of the collection has to b the multicolored shearling coats, especially the gold one below – very clever way to incorporate three colors in an already noticeable coat.
