Best in show: Following Prada's show invitation, which was cut from a crisp sheet of black taffeta fabric, it wasn't surprising that much of the best looks in this collection came from the same inky hued fabric. The haute silk material brought a touch of feminine glam to highly masculine tailored pieces, including cropped peacoats, short-sleeved shirts and uber-pressed jackets.

Finishing touches: Clunky, orthopedic footwear has, by now, become a Prada signature. Mrs Prada took the fascination to new heights with lace-up boots and shoes that were clamped into plastic vices with jaw-like soles.

Scene setting: The company's Milan HQ was once again transformed by AMO into a series of caged cells wrapped in black marble paper and silver metal grating. Entitled 'Infinite Palace', the maze of metal rooms created a menacing, yet totally intriguing vibe.
