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.
