Jeff Goldblum takes to the Runway for Prada

Prada called on Jeff Goldblum, Kyle MacLachlan, Asa Butterfield and a handful of other Hollywood stars as part of its Fall/Winter 2022 men’s show in Milan.

Taking “theatre and cinema as mirrors of reality”, Prada cast 10 globally renowned actors as part of its highly-anticipated menswear fashion show on Sunday. Ashton Sanders, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Damson Idris were among the actors enlisted for the runway.

The cameos marked an upbeat note to a fashion week that has seen several labels – including Milan regular, Armani – cancel shows or revert to digital-only presentations amid a surge in Covid-19 cases across Europe. Last week, Italy recorded its highest daily figure for infections since the start of the pandemic, with over 220,000 new cases reported on Tuesday.

“The collection celebrates the idea of working – in all different spheres and meanings,” said Prada, emphasising the idea of the importance of formal work and the wardrobe she imagines represents it. “Through these clothes, we emphasise that everything a human being does is important. Every aspect of reality can be elegant and dignified … elevated, and celebrated,” Prada said.

Drawing inspiration from the concept of uniforms, the collection featured traditional tailoring, faux fur and double-breasted coats. In a press release, Prada said that in the collection, “the everyday reality is valorized and uniforms of employ achieve new importance.”

 Outerwear loomed large in trench coats and utilitarian parkas with shearling panels. Elsewhere, the accessories that will get the social media universe buzzing arrived in compartmentalised backpacks, fluorescent gloves and miniature pocket belts in the signature Prada triangle.

The collection from Miuccia Prada and co-creative director Raf Simons rounded off a quieter menswear fashion week this year, with reduced in-person attendance and cancelled shows as a result of increased COVID cases.
