Prada’s spring 2011 collection finds inspiration in early twentieth century jazz with flapper style dresses and banana motifs reminiscent of Josephine Baker’s iconic costume. Bringing a sense of modernity to the retro influences, stripes, bold color and latin motifs took to the runway in full force, bringing a sense of drama to Milan Fashion Week.
Prada’s fall 2010 collection comes alive with the label’s fantasy lookbook which takes a look at the past season through the illustrations of Alexander Reichert and Fausto Fantinuoli with photography by Phillip Meech. Featuring models such as Miranda Kerr, Barbara Palvin, Lara Stone, Monika Jagaciak, Kasia Struss, Kirsi Pyrhonen, Valerija Kelava, Maryna Linchuk, Ginta Lapina and others, the images go from the runway to the streets in retro style artwork.
Despite being a campaign of many models, the absolute standout of Prada’s fall advertisements is Angela Lindvall. Surrounded by the moody crowd of Daria Strokous, Valerija Kelava, Miranda Kerr and others, Angela sings her heart out in front of Steven Meisel’s lens as she dons the brand’s kitsch dresses and accessories.
Finally, after a week full of campaign previews we get to see a look at one of the most highly anticipated campaigns–Prada by Steven Meisel. Starring the always charming Angela Lindvall beside Mathias Bergh, the image takes us inside a swanky club where model couples featuring Daria Strokous, Valerija Keleva and others cozy up on the dance floor.
Our next installment of The Supermodel Experience takes us way back to the fall 1990 campaign season. Always creative, the Prada label chose Helena Christensen as the face of their dramatic, all black and white advertisements.
Simplicity is key for Prada‘s spring campaign photographed by Steven Meisel. In contrast to the fall, the Italian fashion house goes for a more simplistic approach this season by featuring one model, Rasa Zukauskaite, against a stark white background that calls attention to the clothes and accessories rather than star power or elaborate sets.
