Castello Cavalcanti, a Prada cinematic story

Latest cinematic endeavor from Italian fashion house Prada is an 8 min short-film written and directed by Wes Anderson. Castello Cavalcanti is a humorous story set in 1955 Italy, in a light-hearted homage paid to Federico Fellini. The short film was shot at Cinecitta Studios, where La Dolce Vita was made, and was inspired by a scene from Amacord (by same Fellini).

Prada Donna fall-winter 2013 campaign

The first images from Prada Donna fall-winter 2013 advertising campaign have arrived. As in previous season the campaign was shot by photographer Steven Meisel in a studio-portrait style with a tone of grit and raw sensuality added to match the runaway show's atmosphere. The setting is bare, severe with only vintage industrial chairs for the seductive protagonists to rest on. The autumnal dark shades of clothes and setting make a striking contrast with the harsh light, like a cold-season morning light.

Prada is giving "fever" this fall

Great looking ad campaign from Prada for the upcoming season of fall 2010 starring model muse Angela Lindvall who plays the jazz singer role with heart (watch her singing Fever on The Mad Men inspired images send forth a refined seductive mood picturing a flirtatious night out at this exclusive "early 1960s" jazz club. Makes me want to go and find a printed A-line dress and a little swing jacket right now.

Prada campaign: fall/winter 2009/2010

The newest womenswear advertising campaign from Prada continues with the "cloned" beauties approach of the last season but at the same time goes for a lot more somber, mysterious aura.
Savage looks (crimped hair, smoky eyes) and dark waters hit the "back to the nature" feeling of the fall 2009 collection; I would say it sends out a mythological reference but those high-heel fishing waders/rain boots are an odd wake-up call to reality.

Shot by tireless Steven Meisel and starring fresh-faced models Anna de Rijk, Ymre Stiekema, Julia Hafstrom, Katlin Aas and Kendra Spears, Prada ad campaign is, as always, a slick presentation of the high-fashion clothes and accessories; this season in elegant hues of purple, red and brown.

Prada spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Spring/Summer 2009 ad campaign for luxury fashion label Prada was inspired by ancient stone bas-reliefs - depicting everyday life scenes and in this case dancing (?!). Well, anyway, the crinkled, glossy, textured fabrics and leathers Miuccia Prada planned for this season really go together with this idea.
Same goes for the sculptured hair-styling and the rigid, statuesque postures of the 7 topmodels that look so alike.
