Miuccia Prada’s boys were youthful, spirited and bright – thrown in the play-pen with the women’s Resort collection and the runway was awoken by sartorial playfulness. A blur of kitten heels, rabbits and rocket ships – Prada set the tone for SS16.

The blurring of genders captured lost childhoods, from the bunny adorned jackets to rocket ship sweaters and the retro sock-kitten-heel combination. As the all-seeing-eye watched over the catwalk, mini dresses and pencil skirts added femininity to the gender-nonconforming prints and boys adorned casualwear and relaxed tailoring. It was a refreshing change to the androgynous presence of women on the runway – we all want to be in Prada’s gang.
