Look backward to Prada’s past 20 years of fashion shows and you’ll see that among her favorite colors—a long list, from margarine yellow to electric chartreuse to the brand’s custom dusty egg blue—are always black and a wide range of browns. Today’s Spring 2019 womenswear show opened with a black satin turtleneck and milk chocolate–colored Bermuda shorts. The Resort 2019 show began similarly, with Julia Nobis in a short-sleeved turtleneck and a long, sheer chestnut skirt.
But long before 2018, the designer was proposing russet and black cocktail frocks with a ’40s spin for Fall 2016, wrinkled Mediterranean bralettes and pencil skirts in umber and black for Spring 2009, and textured skirtsuits in a golden caramel and black for Fall 2007. It’s so pervasive a combo that Prada’s earliest shows in the ’90s featured whole passes in brown and black, sometimes together, sometimes not.
