Miuccia Prada never fails to surprise. She did it again with her fall 2013 collection that exuded an air of mystery.

As one of the world's most creative designers, Miuccia Prada always demands fashion attention, so we're taking a quick break from our continued look at the best of fall from the runways of New York to offer this report from the Prada [http: /www.prada.com/en/live-parade/p] runway show in Milan. Miuccia Prada told the New York Times [http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/22/fashion/22iht-fprada22.html] that the collection was about "raw elegance," but it looks to us like a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock movie, with moody shadows, spinning ceiling fans and a silhouette of a cat — with moving tail — on the wall. The clothes had a film noir attitude too, with dresses and suits cinched at the waist and a slightly askew attitude.
