Prada Serves Up Curves, On And Off The Runway
Last night, Carsten Höller, the artist responsible for the famous slide that carries Miuccia Prada from her office to her car, made an interesting point about a criminally overlooked part of her sensational presentation: the food and drink she served her guests. Höller insisted Miuccia puts almost as much thought into these details as the clothes. Possibly an exaggeration, but there’s no doubt that the choux pastries were a subtle extrapolation of the ample curves on the catwalk. And the Scotch and water and Rusty Nail cocktails were just the sort of drink a strong-willed woman would have ordered in the golden era of the bombshell that Prada was referencing. Christina Hendricks in Mad Men? Yes, please.
