The illustrator's works and Miuccia Prada's inspiring world lend themselves to the Poster Girls collection

Ask any editor or buyer who has sat through a Prada runway show and they'll tell you that it's the crowning jewel of the Milan circuit. Dreamy, brazen, quirky. The Prada lady and the world she inhabits — more often than not translated through a realistic show set-up resembling a film set — goes hand in hand, beckoning its audience into the curious mind of the designer. 

During fall/winter 2017, we entered the Prada woman's intimate dwellings, in which vintage '60s posters illustrated by Robert E. McGinnis (also responsible for that of the James Bond films and Breakfast at Tiffany's), pre-millennium ceramic tiled walls and beds decked in kitschy, floral sheets set the stage. It was the milieu of a woman who knew her place in society; she who believes in strength, equality, freedom — and possesses her own mind when it comes to politics. 

Can such an inspiring story by Mrs Prada be condensed into fashion in its most simplistic form? Printed T-shirts and jumpers, Prada has decided, will deliver maximum impact. Just like the posters plastered on the walls of her "bedroom" during the runway show, the Poster Girl capsule collection is too, an avenue for the 21st century feminist to speak her mind with. 

Available online and at selected Prada boutiques.
