For Prada Fall Winter 2019 womenswear collection, designer Miuccia Prada revisited the inspiration behind her last Frankenstein inspired menswear collection with a slightly different perspective.

FW19 Menswear was a collection crafted with a focus on the grunge-like otherness of society’s outcasts. It was a fascination with the monster-like Frankensteins of society. However this season, Prada opted to take a more relatable concept tied into the same storyline with a title called Anatomy of Romance. The collection explored the themes of love and romanticism and their toxicity thereof. It was a play on both the dark and light sides of a love story, an interplay between different dichotomies.

As an instrumental of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance played in the background, a Wednesday Addams look-a-like strut down the runway wearing a full grey look with a yellow rose accessory around her neck and red shoes as the only items of color, this was a focus on the greyer scale of love. Other looks feature similar and contrasting concepts of strewn flower embroidery and prints, lace skirts and veiling and mohair fur backpacks, and hats, leather purses. Military colors and forms were also brought back from the menswear show along with the concept of the Frankenstein inspired lightning bolts along with a dress printed with the faces of the horror character and his bride.

The entire collection was a display of on one of Miuccia most useful sayings: the importance of duality; within the human experience, man-made and natural, love and pain. It was an emphasis on the relevance that balance holds not only in love but in everyday life.
