Prada FW 2019 Womenswear (1)

Trendy runway fashion presented for current and upcoming seasons does not become actualized fashion for the everyday person until a few years later. The very expensive clothing that you see presented by leading luxury designers during fashion week (New York, Paris, and Milan primarily) need a moment to be reproduced by mass market retailers to offer a similar, more affordable option to the everyday non-celebrity consumer. This explains why I tend to blog about fashions and editorials that are from a few years ago instead of fresh off of the most recent runway shows.

The pieces from the 2019 Prada Fall/Winter Womenswear collection that stand out to me as true showstoppers are those pieces that are heavily military inspired. In today's delicate economy, it is a clever investment to add some well constructed military-inspired pieces to your wardrobe especially if you can get actual military attire at a military surplus store or a consignment shop. Military-inspired fashion never goes out of style ... especially if the pieces are from the Prada design house!

Cool, modern twist on a wardrobe classic.

Prada FW 2019

In the overall collection, there is a freakish Frankenstein theme that connects all of the styles presented giving the collection a fresh, modern flair with a few glitzy touches and whimsical details. However, the strong military-inspired details throughout stand out to me as the dominant featured style. This is apparent in the super fabulous footwear featuring removable logo patches, luxury leather exterior construction, and thick, durable soles. There are military-inpsired sneakers, loafers, and boots that will definitely serve as wardrobe staples for fashion-forward urbanites. If one must splurge on an authentic Prada piece, it must be on a pair of the brand's chunky, military-inspired footwear.
