Opening Up Prada’s Box

I always enjoy a good shift in silhouette direction, and have always admired how Miuccia Prada tends to be on the forefront of new shapes. Last season she introduced the 3-button suit (and jacket) and already we’re seeing a lot more 3-button styles on the runways for Fall 11. Well this time around, Prada introduces a new, boxy silhouette for men. The most exaggerated styles appear slightly comical, but the shape works from knitwear to outerwear, especially when paired against cropped or slim tailored pants.

A few of the more boxy wearable options included oversized polos, the cropped 3-button jacket, and my favorite, the 70s-inspired “V” warm-up.
