Elle Fanning, Uma Thurman and Diane Kruger Hit Prada's Star-Studded Resort 2020 Show
Sofia Coppola, Naomi Watts, Hailee Steinfeld and Shailene Woodley were also in the front row for the return of the iconic bowling bag.
Miuccia Prada brought back the bowling bag — and brought out a to-die-for front row — for her latest resort collection.
Decamping from Milan to her Herzog & de Meuron-designed New York headquarters, a who's who of Hollywood including Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts, Uma Thurman, Hailee Steinfeld, Diane Kruger, Sofia Coppola, Zoe Kazan, Shailene Woodley, Lucy Boynton, Natalia Dyer and Bonnie Wright turned out to watch Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber on the runway.
The men were represented, too, with Paul Dano, Baz Luhrmann, Lee Daniels, Joel Edgerton and even Marc Jacobs and new hubby Charly Defrancesco holding court.
The iconic bag wasn't the only what's-old-is-new design to hit the runway, Prada also revisited some of her classics with modern twists and drenched the space in Prada pink.
It was her signature mix of contrasts and confrontation — chunky hand-knit sweater vests over bright satin peasant skirts, sporty striped shirts or tunics belted over plaid bias-cut skirts that recalled some of her earlier, grungier collections.
Known to be the most intellectual of designers (she did study political science after all), Prada designs for comfort and the looks were both luxe and livable in her signature eclectic mix of patterns.
While skirts and dresses were loose, coats and blazers were tightly tailored, which added just the right amount of edge to a floral, feminine collection. Orange and brown suede jackets added a hint of seventies vibe.
It all seemed to be a rallying cry against fast fashion and the Instagram frames we all find ourselves in — she called the collection “a contrast with the increased complexity of the world, pulling back to the sincere, pure and true.”
The collection was admittedly “modest,” too, featuring this season's ubiquitous prairie dress, and “honest,” made out of cotton and wool instead of sleek synthetics — all the things that make up “real glamour,” she added in the show notes.
But for all her protests, the bag — available on presale for three days only — is sure to be the next "It" item blowing up Instagram.
