Prada Seasonal Campaign
I love the Prada seasonal campaigns. Fashion is shown as art through great photography. The Autumn-Winter collection for 2012 is no exception.
A virtual labyrinth of fantasy and reality is the set for Prada’s autumn/winter campaign, photographed by Steven Meisel.
Shifting camera angles and an endless depth of field create a playful illusion of perspective and proportion, recalling the setting for a videogame.
Occupying the space on multiple levels characters in the foreground appear magnified, while others recede into the distance like virtual princesses poised for combat. The models’ unified gaze creates a seductive focus. Blocks of coordinated colour created by clothing, dip-dyed hair and furniture produce a chromatic architecture for Prada’s fashion avatars.
The effect of the campaign is a new take on beauty and a futuristic vision of fantasy and desire.
