2016 is the year, which according to Chinese lunar New Year belongs to monkeys. In Chinese zodiac, monkeys are characterised by their curiousity of the world and creative energy – so no wonder why designers make monkeys appear on the runways regularly. Back in 2011, the obsession about monkeys in fashion sparkled after Prada‘s colourful and bold spring-summer fashion show. Monkey motifs appeared on the architectural tops and pencil skirts, whilee the dresses with embroidered monkeys were hand-made in India. Moreover, Miuccia Prada went bananas that season, presenting the potassium-rich fruits on the frivolous mini-skirts and daddy-from-Hawaii shirts. Up to date, it’s one of my favourite collections coming from Miuccia, and now as it gained even bigger significance in 2016 – I adore it!
