If you're feeling the heat, you're not alone. Prada's embracing summer with a psychedelically-colourful and energy-filled new collection, with the drop of their latest Tropico concept showcase at ION Orchard. If beach vibes met Warhol in a setting that brings a surrealist Dali landscape to life – this would be it. The Tropico pop-up is a bold and vibrant display of playfulness and elegance, combining comfort for the humid season, without compromising one inch on style.
Mixing urban elements with the tropical earthiness of nature, the use of the bold, playful stripes is prominent through the line, that isn't afraid to demand attention. You'll also find the brand's historic enamelled triangle logo accenting this collection; from bucket hats to colourful sandals to Prada's bag of the season – the Raffia Triangle Bag. As you explore the pop-up, you'll find intense contrasting colour pairings and geometric patterns that create graphic effects, evoking the building’s facade and cleverly mirroring a kaleidoscope of colours from blue to green to orange to pink and beyond.
The full collection features both Men's and Women's wear, with silk blouses, mini, calf-length and full skirts, distinctive terry-effect knitwear and casual men’s shirts and shorts available for purchase. The same hues are repeated on the accessories: striped hats made of raffia, in several styles and nylon. If you're looking to stay cool, but colourful and stylish this summer – you know where to go.
The Prada Tropico pop-up is now at ION Orchard Singapore, Level 1 Atrium until May 17th 2022. Go check it out this long weekend for a little summer getaway, right in the heart of Singapore.
