Last September in Milan, Miuccia Prada presented a collection inspired by street artists from the world over, think Jeanne Detallante, Gabriel Specter and El Mac. Prada has employed the talents of photographer Steven Klein for its Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, which sees models including Anna Ewers, Ashleigh Good and Amanda Murphy in a fresco-style scene. In the video, the girls are vibrant in high color, embellished pieces, with gems encrusted on the fabrics and summer furs abound.
For Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Valentino’s creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli aimed to bring the paintings of Flemish artist Vermeer to life. Inspired by the unsettling beauty of Girl with a Pearl Earring, the graceful and restrained collection is unveiled in a new clip which takes us behind the scenes on the campaign, shot by Inez & Vinoodh.
For the SS2013 Real Fantasies by AMO, Prada experiments a multi-faceted collage of hand-drawn and painted shapes, casting the shadows that they project. Simplicity, poetry and sentimentalism, processed through imaginary cinematic scenes; characters yearning in a world of sophisticated feelings, eluding nostalgia to inspect longing and legacy. Restraining versus revealing: conflicting attitudes in a series of intimate and social situations.
Equipment has just launched their spring/summer 2013 advertising campaign with Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart from The Kills. Mosshart and Hince showcase the brands cashmere and silk silhouettes from both the Equipment Femme and Equipment Homme collection. “I heard that Jamie and Alison were fans of Equipment and after listening to their music, I knew that we had to collaborate creatively. The way they wear our shirts is pure Rock n Roll, yet very much what Equipemnt is all about”, says CEO and Creative Director Serge Azria.
