Was that heavy metal music we heard in the hallowed halls of Prada? 'I struggled with the music all week,' said Miuccia Prada backstage post-show, wearing a skyscraper pair of Miu Miu sandals and a lurex top. 'Nothing worked. So then I thought, "well there's metal in the clothes - hmmm, how about Metallica?"' The hardcore trash music provided just the right unexpected yet desperately needed contrast to highly clinical clothes that had been scrubbed of all crassness. The metal Ms Prada mentioned was disco-ready metallic lurex, used as second skin sweaters, and pared with ‘office clerk’ nerd pants and minimal, oversized boxy coats. Throughout the show, a discourse emerged on retirement-style leisurewear - sweatsuits were re-conceived as shiny compact jersey two pieces with chevron motifs, while slip-on boots and lace ups had geriatric comfort soles in the same color built in to the design. Best of all were nylon baggy pedal pushers worn with striped knee socks - and shoes grandpa could attempt to do a few laps in.
