Prada’s 3-Button Suit

I must admit that I’m a big fan of Miuccia Prada. I’ve found that whatever she does for menswear or womenswear tends to make a lasting impression. Her concepts and ideas are typically a few seasons ahead and trickle their way down to mass consumption or influence at some stage. Behold the new statement for Spring 11 menswear: The 3-Button Suit.

Set to a youthful tailored collection, these jackets are obviously slim-fit, almost to the point of looking nipped. But 3-buttons? We haven’t seen this in menswear in a very long time, making Prada’s comeback of the style looking fresh though perhaps a bit surprising. However, Z by Zegna also featured 3-button jackets, although much more relaxed. While the notion of a 3-button jacket or suit may seem radical now, I’m sure some interpretations will work their way into mainstream menswear give or take a few seasons.
