Prada has offered up “uniforms of beauty” for its fall/winter 2020 womenswear collection.

Creative director Miuccia Prada unveiled her latest line at the Fondazione Prada complex as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, with the presentation attracting the likes of Gemma Arterton and Blackpink’s Lisa.

Regarding the inspiration for the range, a Prada spokesperson explained that the garments were designed to explore the way in which “delicacy can define strength”.

“Tools of glamour, uniforms of beauty. For #PradaFW20, a consideration of the strength of women, with an emphasis on an inherent authority found in that which is intrinsically feminine,” they commented.

To open, a model walked the runway in a grey blazer with wide lapels that was matched with a black fringed skirt and wide black leather belt.

Miuccia opted for a muted colour palette of grey, black, and beige fabrics throughout the 60-look line, which also included knitted separates, tailored suits worn with collared shirts and ties, as well as faux fur jackets.

Partway through the show, the designer once again subverted convention by pairing ladylike shirts or sheer dresses with ruffled necklines with more traditional menswear garments such as boxy jackets. Models such as Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid also carried the new handbag silhouette for the season – a square-shaped leather tote with briefcase vibe.

A little sparkle was apparent in pastel lemon and purple beaded dresses that were accessorised with grey tights and puffy headbands, while other highlights included long coats covered in layers of fringed fabric and black satin two-piece outfits printed with an abstract white floral motif.

Jonah Hill and Yara Shahidi have been tapped to star in Adidas Originals’ new team-themed campaign.

The actor/filmmaker recently confirmed he was collaborating with the German sportswear giant, and earlier this week, announced he was appearing in and had directed an advertisement titled Change Is a Team Sport.

The clip follows skater Jennifer Soto as she makes her way through a facility, where creators and Adidas brand ambassadors, all decked out in black tracksuits and Superstar sneakers, come together to work for change.

“There’s no knowledge without the older generation who did it first,” Jonah said of the concept. “And there’s no change or progression without the new generation. So, if those two generations come together, I feel like that creates the atomic charge for great art and great creativity.”

In addition to Jonah, Yara, and Jennifer, the commercial also features cameos from famed gamer Ninja, entertainer Kerwin Frost, K-pop sensation Blackpink, Pharrell Williams, skaters Mariah Duran, Blondey, Mark Gonzales, and Tyshawn Jones, basketballers Liz Cambage and Tracy McGrady, soccer star Paul Pogba, designer/DJ Nigo, rapper Jackson Wang, dancer Mette Towley, and fashion designer Anna Isoniemi.

“Change Is a Team Sport campaign celebrates the idea that when creators join together, we can drive and inspire change,” added Torben Schumacher, general manager of the Adidas Originals & Style Global Brand. “Much like the way the adidas Superstar has been the shoe for game-changing creators and teams for 50 years and counting, we’ve looked to our Adidas family to inspire the next generation and create a new legacy for one of the most iconic shoes of all time.”
