For me, Prada has always been an “intellectual” brand. I imagine their clientele (both women and men) to be bookish and worldly; the types to be sitting at cafes, drinking espresso, smoking cigarettes, and having lively conversations on art and politics.
In any case, at Prada, I’ve always found the cuts to be smart, the fabrics luxurious, and the construction built with quality. It reasons, then, that I’m always interested when Milan Fashion Week rolls around. And, scanning the photos from Prada’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection, this is definitely my favorite look.
I really like the contrast in pinstripe thickness between the pants and jacket. The accoutrements in the chest pocket are spot-on as well, adding color to an otherwise, somber palette.
