SS14 fashion week zoom: The Feminist march

The Prada and Marc Jacobs shows marked this SS14 fashion week by their strong message about women in the past, today and future society… For me they were by far the most accomplished and impressive ones.

The icons: Mila Jovovich in Jeanne d’Arc meets the Belle Epoque coquette

At Marc Jacobs, we were confronted to a survivor who faces an apocalyptic world and keeps fighting no matter what, but also plays with fashion and managed to assemble unexpected pieces: sneakers and bermuda mixed with heavy wool silk embellished troubadour jackets, sequins beaded dresses worn with flat native American boots or Belle Epoque rich silk taffetas gowns, betraying a luxurious and decadent past.

The Icon: Eva Peron meets the Chula girl

 Miucca Prada took us to the perilous world of feminist fighters and women who struggle all over the world. Indeed the audience could see those impressive frescoes painted by mural artists that reflected the “barrio latino” street art and Miucca’s political statement. The awesome face drawings on most of the looks were definitely the central point of the show smartly combined with sportswear elements and powerful colors.
