Miuccia Prada is beyond minimalism, she did that already. She also did wet hair and grunge, all themes we saw for Spring 2014. Yes, the designer who’s always paved her own path is once again ahead of her time with her new collection presented on this second day of Milan Fashion Week.

Her 41-piece collection featured printed mosaics from muralists of feminist heroines from around the globe, tuxedos dresses, detailed coats, leg warmers and the most quaint handbags we’ve seen this season. A clear mix of a fearless yet tempestuous woman, the collection is said to be influenced by Prada’s days as the secretary of Milan’s Communist party.

She unapologetically incorporates images of women with bead overlay work  and any type of cut she see’s fit (notice the pleated skirt with exposed under skirt, below).

Milan, more than other cities that host a Fashion Week, is known for the obscure footwear and bold color palette exhibited here. Reminiscent of Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2013 collection, she replaced questionable black faces with artistic depictions of leaders.

“I want to inspire women to struggle,” she told Style.com. From the sporadic beading to the look of the models, the whole presentation looked very methodical with a direct message. What is this message? Be anything you want to be.
