The Prada Fall 2014 Collection issues some playful vibes that have yet to be seen on the cool season's runway. The move they've made is moodier, darker and manages to be both kooky and calculated. Anything's possible at the hands of Miuccia Prada; a clash of prints, oversized silhouettes and layered fabrics bring to mind erratic aesthetics of a child playing through her parents' closet.

Of course, there's nothing childlike about the collection with slinky, bright dresses peeking beneath large printed coats. Deep V-necks also make an appearance, but are coordinated for wear-ability.

Dresses cut off just below the knee for a stunning French-style calf, while the menswear-inspired coats add dimension and contrast to the feminine frocks. The mix and match of feminine-masculine motifs are quite charming.
