Miuccia Prada Starts Her Day With This Simple Wellness Hack

In lieu of a runway show, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, Prada’s newly appointed co-creative director, streamed a digital presentation of their first joint spring 2021 collection and then sat down for a conversation during which they fielded questions that had been crowd-sourced on Instagram. In addition to speaking about their unprecedented partnership and the new Prada uniform, Mrs. Prada also shared her time-tested wellness secret.

When asked “What do you drink in the morning to start your day?” the Milanese powerhouse, dressed demurely in a navy V-neck sweater and pleated white cotton skirt, responded with a smile: “Hot water,” she answered simply. “My mother told me, First hot water, and after, breakfast. It’s very healthy.” (Simons, on the other hand, confessed that he takes a different approach: “Me, I’m bad,” he said. “Coffee and the rest of the day Coca Zero.”)

The age-old hydration hack has also found fans in everyone from Gisele Bundchen and Naomi Campbell (who takes hers with a splash of lemon) to a number of wellness pros: “Starting the day with a tall glass of water is a wonderful way to aid digestion, activate circulation, and release toxins,” says the Brooklyn-based holistic nutritionist Daphne Javitch, who likens it to “an internal shower after the powerful cleansing window of sleep.” Simply put, she adds, “Water is a game-changing and underrated healing tool.” Consider it the ultimate foundation for the day ahead.
