After Prada Fall Winter 2008/2009 catwalk presentation, everyone was asking if the lace thing is really going to catch.
Wondering and waiting I haven’t thought that it would and not only in clothing but also in interior decoration! So here’s the first furniture proof that Prada hooks. I wouldn’t take it into my living room anyway, looks like a puffy black widow ready to wrap itself around you. It should have been called Lace Black Widow instead of Lily Lace Chair. However, for almost $4,000 you can absolutely feel in-prada-trend!
Remember we were celebrating the return of the wonderful Christy Turlington a while back, when we talked about her modeling again for Calvin Klein? Well, it’s not just for CK! This week we discovered a radiant Christy Turlington Burns in campaigns for Jason Wu, Chanel and Prada.
While I’m still disturbed by the body-double thing in Kate Moss’ Stuart Weitzman ad campaign, I’m looking at the always gorgeous Christy and ask myself if it’s really her in all the shots! Who’s to say, now that there were no paps outside the location where the ad campaigns were photographed, nobody really knows if they haven’t used the same double-trick in these ads as well!
Now since I unleashed the advertorial talk, I should get to it fully, embracing the newly released images from yet another fashion campaign: Prada Pre-Fall 2013. Makes sense, right? Talking about Fall when it’s Spring outside! Nature is soooo last season!
Steven Meisel photographed Irene Hiemstra, Amanda Murphy and Vanessa Axente clutching onto beautiful, simple Prada bags and looking worse for wear, with their hair undone and their clothes unbuttoned. Amid all that strictness following the arrival of Fall fashion, the straight lines and exact patterns of the gingham print, disheveled looks just right.
It breaks the sane pattern. Let’s all lose it in the name of fashion! Yeah, baby!
My dahlings?! The weekend is here! Are your ready to play? Especially with the Olympics and all, Prada’s fall winter 2012 2013 ad campaign video is so spot on!
Not that we wouldn’t know how to appreciate beautiful models playing chess outside the Olympic season… But I would’ve been highly tempted to evaluate this Prada game as a fancy attempt to fashion up the Wizards’ Chess from Harry Potter. What? Replace Emma Watson with Anne Vyalitsyna and we’re on! (oh, and bleach everyone’s eyebrows while we’re at it!)
(one little thing I forgot to Met – mention:) We knew Marc Jacobs was an admirer of Miuccia Prada’s work, but from there to his Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala 2012 outfit is a loooong way! Marc showed up on the Met Ball 2012 Red Carpet with his ex – boyfriend, now reportedly his “best friend” Lorenzo Martone in an eyebrows raising ensemble.
See through black lace Comme Des Garcons dress and white boxer shorts! Which is actually a completely legitimate design from Rei Kawakubo’s Spring Summer 2012Men Collection. Only sifted through Marc Jacobs’ style equals a lot of skin. A lot! Look at the bright side, though – he kept his undies on!
This is the collection of the season! Not only does it faithfully approach the trends, but it also ads a spin and a twist like no other! You know that Prada Spring Summer 2012 is the shape of all fashion summer 2012 things to come!
I loved the clothes. I loved the prints. I loved the combinations. I would not wear them all, but at least they’re far from being dull and catwalking trends. Miuccia Prada is a Designer with a capital D. And you’ll see here designs allover the place. From the sweet joyful flowers to the knee long pleated (sheer) skirts, it all falls back to the elegant and oh-so-sexy fifties. The way I see it is that if Marilyn had to star in a Bseries movie with loads of cars and speeding engines, she might have worn Miuccia Prada’s Spring Summer 2012 designs. Are you happy with the 50s revival? (click through to see my selection; the entire collection here)
I always thought the high fashion consumer has to be someone stylish and truly refined. Also experimenting with fashion imagery rarely got me in such a tasteless place like this new Prada Spring Summer 2010 ad campaign does.
The violence of the ad message makes my head spin. Though it should focus on clothes and accessories, the image is highly disturbing due to the incredibly visible lipstick. Prada’s Summer 2010 looks like a plain and boring one (despite of Rasa Zukauskaite’s loveliness – without the red/orange lipstick). I miss the enchanted bugs delirium! Would you buy Prada just by looking at these images signed by Steven Meisel? (photos via)
My visions on architecture and fashion go as far as the new Prada Transformer. Being a highly praised mix of fashion, architecture and art, the new Prada Transformer actually makes me think about Chanel and Zaha Hadid’s Bag-Art Pavilion with undissimulated nostalgia and appreciation.
The Prada Transformer was conceived by Rem Koolhaas as a four-in-one tent-exhibition: Art Exhibition, Cinema, Fashion Waist Down Exhibition, Special Event (Fashion Show) all physically rolled to fit into the same architectural structure (the story continues right after the jump with more images and inside videos)
