Of all the most talked about moments from the spring/summer 2022 collections, Prada’s white tank top look on Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer ranks high on the list. Aside from the fact that the actress is a bonafide Gen Z style star, the inclusion of this simple staple felt like a strong reminder of its versatility (and relevance!) on and off the runway. If it's good enough for Hunter and Prada, it's more than fine with us.
