The fashion industry was turned upside down yesterday when Prada announced Raf Simons as co-creative director to work alongside Miuccia Prada. Two of the most influential designers in fashion… are collaborating. Tim Blanks immediately wrote on Instagram “I can’t think of anything like this in the history of Fashion”.
The partnership will officially come into effect on the 2nd of April, with the first Prada-Simons collection to be shown in Milan in September 2020.
In a statement, Prada said the collaboration is “a strong challenge to the idea of singularity of creative authorship. As times change, so should creativity.” We’re sure whatever they’ll create together will be truly innovative, if not revolutionary.
This announcement did lead to speculation that Simons joining Prada will lead to Miuccia’s retirement. Miuccia’s response to this, however, was “absolutely not. I like working, and I’m very excited and this will bring new wind. Please don’t make me older than I am.”
When asked about the length of the collaborative contract, the fashion house said that “in theory, it’s forever”.
Isn’t this what fashion dreams are made of?!
