PRADA_THE POSTMAN DREAMS 2_THE_BOGEY_01

Prada presents The Postman’s Gifts

28.11.2017 | Fashion | BY:

To mark the start of the festive season, Prada has released two new films directed by the legendary Autumn de Wilde. Divided into two films, ‘The Postman’s Dreams 2’ (a sequel to de Wilde’s first collaboration with Prada in 2015), and ‘The Postman’s gifts’.

Preoccupied with themes such as desire and the pursuit of satisfaction, de Wilde’s sharp, playful hand is at her masterful best. While Elijah Wood plays an enigmatic postman, it is the Prada Galleria bag that stars as leading lady throughout. Fantastical and maverick, these are an early Christmas treat.

Prada Raw eyewear

24.06.2015 | Fashion | BY:

Prada has been instrumental in helping wooden eyewear break free of its formerly dowdy image. The fashion powerhouse’s new line, Prada Raw, features sought-after smooth curves and top quality, light weight materials, while the grain makes each product unique. The trend reached new heights when Prada stitched leather uppers to its specs for the SS15 catwalk.

Prada continues its innovation with the launch of Prada Raw Avenue this Friday, a virtual catwalk where shoppers can experience Prada’s sunglasses through the eyes of six illustrations. Users can interact with the site in real-time through the different illustrations as they walk the virtual runway.

 The artists from around the globe include Carly Kuhn, Megan Hess, Blair Breitenstein (whose illustration features above), Judith van den Hoek, Wong Ping and Vida Vega.

Prada's Wes Anderson-Designed Bar in Milan

Prada’s Wes Anderson-Designed Bar in Milan

14.05.2015 | Art , Culture | BY:

Prada has teamed up with their favourite director Wes Anderson again. This time, instead of directing shorts for their campaigns, Anderson has lent his unique vision to create a bar. Located in Milan, Bar Luce, which features a Life Aquatic-themed pinball machine, a jukebox and retro formica tables, is part of Prada’s new art and culture complex Fondazione Prada and was inspired by two Italian Neorealist films – Miracle in Milan (1951) and Rocco and His Brothers (1960).

“I think it would be an even better place to write a movie,” states Anderson. “I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in.”

Fondazione Prada and the Luce Bar is open now at Largo Isarco 2, 20139 Milano.

Prada Resort 2015 Campaign

Prada Resort 2015

03.11.2014 | Fashion | BY:

Prada introduces new faces Adrienne Juliger, Ine Neefs and Moya Mardy in their eerie Resort 2015 campaign. Shot by Steven Meisel, and with hair and make up from Guido Palau and Pat McGrath, the result is a enigmatic monochrome portrait of the modern Prada woman.

The collection itself focuses on the new shapes; silhouettes made from short jackets, boxy skirts, pleated trousers and belted dresses, all with a slight nod to the 70’s. The fine details, such as decorative stitching over the seams of each garment, shoe and bag are clear to see in the photography as well as the tension building short video.

Prada-Candy-Florale-Visual-with-Flower

Candy Florale

23.04.2014 | Beauty | BY:

Blended by perfumer Daniela Andrier, under the creative direction of Miuccia Prada, Candy Florale is the latest fragrance from the Italian Fashion House. The idea for the new scent stems from an imaginary flower, one created for Candy herself. The flower had to be wondrous and sophisticated, simply unique. Its lush blossom contains an uplifting mix of floral notes, embodying the many facets of Candy’s character, while the warmth and honey accents reflect Candy’s sensual essence.

Candy is Léa Seydoux. The beautiful French actor stars in the Prada Candy Florale’s advertising campaign, where we find her in both film and print visuals created for Prada by Steven Meisel. He captures Candy in a dreamlike state, where the frangrance is lifting her up, defying gravity.

Prada: The Iconoclasts Project 2014

04.03.2014 | Fashion | BY:

During Milan Fashion Week, Prada presented a new chapter of The Iconoclasts project. Having launched in 2009, it has already seen the likes of Katie Grand, Carine Roitfeld and Olivier Rizzo stamp their trademark on the Prada brand.

This time it is the turn of Edward Enninful, currently fashion and style director of W Magazine. Taking over stores in Milan and St Petersburg, Enninful’s vision was inspired by the energy and original thought of the 1920’s ‘Harlem Renaissance’ in America. “Miucca Prada’s work always begins with a conversation. Drawing from this notion I looked to the ‘Harlem Renaissance’… a period of original thought when creative minds inspired and embraced a new cultural identity. I felt that this was an appropriate narrative to incorporate into this season’s Prada collection,” he explained of the project. His installations were on display last week, and information about future iterations of The Iconolasts series will be released soon.

Twin Picks: Mascara

25.02.2014 | Beauty | BY:

It’s one of those can’t-leave-the-house-without-it-on products, one that has the power to make you look more awake at 8am on a miserable Monday morning. That’s a great power indeed. Mascara just so happened to be big news at the Prada AW14 show in Milan. Pat McGrath created a clumpy lash look for Miuccia Prada’s vision which saw models walk the catwalk with large defined eyes that complimented their fresh nude faces. This look is also a SS14 favourite, so here Twin picks some of the best mascaras on the market today.

EYEKO Fat Brush Mascara, £15, spacenk.com & Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long Wear Mascara, £19, houseoffraser.com

One can now find Prada’s new jewellery collection in stores, and aren’t we excited! It is a colour explosion with a wide range of cuffs, bangles, bracelets and earrings, made with unexpected materials such as saffiano leather, crystals and exotic crocodile skin.

The collection is inspired by the innovation and seductive glamour of 1940s haute jewellery. Each piece is finely crafted using artisanal haute jewellery techniques and exquisite detailing.

The collection brings together Prada’s signature Saffiano textured leather in rich shades of orange, emerald green and turquoise with bold formations of geometric crystals, inspired by the art deco era and the natural world.

The Life Of Candy

03.04.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Fashion film has emerged as an innovative new approach to the genre, but leave it to Prada to pull out the big guns. For their new fragrance Candy L’Eau – a citrus, sweet pea and benzoin-scented flanker to the hit original created by Daniela Andrier – the house decided to let Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola create their own interpretation of the scent.

French actress Léa Seydoux stars in the playful short as the coquettish and love-torn protagonist, Candy. Just like this scent is a more lightweight interpretation of the 2011 original, Candy L’Eau is a playful take on joie de vivre. And too good to miss.

Watch the film and behind the scenes footage below.

Prada Womenswear FW12 Adv Camp_02 (3)

Prada World

19.06.2012 | Blog | BY:

Prada’s new A/W 12 campaign dropped into Twin’s inbox this week. Specifically, two images shot by Steven Meisel who unfailingly serves up polished images to match Prada’s peerless vision.

Not afraid to carve out her own niche, this time Miuccia’s models inhabit a futuristic vision that glitches forward by way of Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange. Those geometric print belted trouser suits that were introduced to us a few months ago are worn with dark-eyed stares, in what Prada calls a “futuristic enclosure” of Tetris like orange and white carpeted steps.

By creating her own video game “level” complete with model avatars, Prada has engendered her own world. A virtual reality,  in which we can play along with her glorious, unabashed fashion intellectualism. We’re sure her  printed suits with flared cropped pants, dip dyed tresses and rubber galoshes are set to be in our fashion future.

Miu Miu Tokyo Ginza_2

Treasure Trove

22.11.2011 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Miu Miu’s new flagship store in the heart of Toyko is a three tiered carousel packed with the kind of playful luxury that we’ve come to expect of Prada’s little sister. Sugary handbags and shoes jostle like bright jewels on gilt shelves in the newly opened Ginza Echogoya district shop.

Between the damask sofas, gold framed mirrors and crystal counters there’s no mistaking the opulence. But the Miu Miu girl has always worn luxury with an independent spirit and the store is more than a shopping experience, it’s an immaculate interpretation of the brand’s aesthetic vision. Prepare to lose yourself.

Baby it’s cold outside

29.09.2010 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Though fashion’s fanfare is currently en route to Paris for the SS/11 collections, the nip in the air means we’re focused on what to wear for warmth right now. And judging by their winter campaign – shot by Josh Olins and styled by Kate Phelan – Topshop could have the answer.

This series of soft and autumnal images stars Ajak Deng (she of Prada catwalk fame) and Gwen Loos in an abundance of cable knits, shearling capes, camel hues and leather (or pleather). We’re coveting the hooded scarves and heavy-duty satchels – but love that the campaign is full of ideas that don’t cost a thing. Just add a turn-up here and a belted skirt there, layer like crazy and you’ll be bang on trend.

Is it us or do these rather magnificent mannequins spotted in the Prada window look uncannily like Twin’s favourite model, Freja Beha Erichsen? Clever Miuccia. Ok so it’s not Freja’s typical tomboyish look – but we covet the hell out these summery, graphic print day dresses. Next stop Portofino.
