Prada SS19: Are the super short shorts the next summer trend?

Watching Prada Men Spring Summer 2019 show we have noted a lot of looks that we dream about for ourselves.

We’re talking super short shorts, retro tone-on-tone belts, big puffy hats and a really nice set of bags… but what about those ‘super mini’ shorts?

Inspired by 70s and designed with patterns and colours from the 90s, the new trend proposal from Prada seems to be quite sexy and unusual at the the same time for the men’s world.

Muccia Prada used the words “more elegant” when describing how she wanted her men to look and she definitely achieved it.

I am already in love with those burgundy silky short shorts! What do you think about the new trend?


Burberry Resort 2019

Last Friday 11/5, Burberry sent social media into pandemonium with a collection of images from their Resort 2019 collection on their Instagram stories and feed.

The images are a first look at the brand through the eyes of its new chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci who took up the position in March replacing Christopher Bailey after 17 years.

The collection entitled – B Classic is a series of eight images that showcases and highlights the history of the brand. On his arrival at the house Tisci “wanted to celebrate the beauty, heritage and legacy that I discovered.” In doing this Tisci curated and styled the looks that were designed by the in-house team. This translated into a collection that is outerwear heavy and touches on Burberry iconography. The trench coat, the Harrington jacket, the car coat and cape in military green, brown and Horse ferry check came styled as his-and-hers outfits each couple photographed in loving embrace.

No new ground or trends are trends are being set here this is a collection made to keep Burberry in fashion conversation until Tisci’s official debut collection for the brand on Monday 17th September at 5pm. It does round off a 17-year era that Bailey championed Burberry and put the brand on the international fashion stage. This is a collection that nails the idea of fashion fluidity, the duality of clothes and gender flexibility of the dressing. It encapsulates the same spirit and joy Bailey showcased in his last show in February where he celebrated the LGBT+ community.

This gives us no indication of what Tisci has planned come September which makes the anticipation even more worth waiting for.
