Prada Ad Campaign Commentary

20 December 2012, 22.23 | Posted in Models, advertisement, bags, photography | No comments »

PradaSpring2013 (3)

As usual Prada comes up with a stellar campaign for Spring 2013. Beautiful product  galvanized by simple, color crisp  images and of course showcased by many of the industry’s top girls–Vanessa Axente, Saskia de Brauw, Irina Kravchenko, Eva Herzigova, Sung Hee, Irene Hiemstra, Kirsten Owen, Sasha Pivovarova, Amber Valletta, Maartje Verhoef, and Raquel Zimmermann. (And as good as all the product looks in images, it’s more delicious in real life–words cannot describe how this writer longs for a Prada bag!)

Except for Sung Hee, the girls are all white, a tendency for which Prada has repeatedly been criticized for, especially as it applies to its runways. In a way though, pointing out the color of models on runways is a shallow shot at brands. Modeling is an ephemeral job at best (career–implying as it does something with longevity/import–should never be used to describe the work of posing in clothing), with those landing jobs that set them for life about as rare as a Powerball lottery winner.

In reality you have to guess the bigger issue lies at the top of major fashion brands, which one has to bet are even less diverse than their runways. And if there is little to no diversity among decision makers, it would make sense that they are reluctant to represent the same in their ads and on their runways. After all, when one lacks everyday relationships with ethnically/religiously/racially different people, it’s easier to view them as exotics to be pulled out for special statement-making moments (or as tokens to appease the complaints) rather than as stellar beauties upon whom a brand can be built. I’ve said it before, fashion can do better and actually I believe it will in 2013….xox0

On another note, lol, more of those Prada ads on the next page.

The Olsen Twins Drop A Pill-Covered, $55K Backpack

The Row Olsens backpack The Olsen Twins Drop A Pill Covered, $55K Backpack
In collaboration with Just One Eye and fashion designer Damien Hirst, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen created this limited $55K backpack for their lable’s ‘The Row’ 2012 collection. The price for this incredible piece seems rediculously high but regarding the The Row’s crocodile backpack from the last years collection, priced $35K, which sold out within a just few days, I doubt that this one-of-a-kind wearable artwork will not sell out. The backpack features numerous multicolored prescription pill appliqués that were designed by Hirst. Next to the pills-backpack there are a few other other polka-dotted versions disolayed in the video below.

Just in case, the backback will release on December 12 at Just One Eye.

Would you buy it, if you could?

Reed Karkoff clutch 1 Reed Krakoff Anarchy Bag Spring 2013
Gotta love accessories that blend a little roughness with lux appeal. The “Anarchy” clutch form the Pre-Spring 2013 collection by Reed Krakoff just lauched in stores and online and made me pause in admiration. The form, the chain and the gilt frame…It is obvious that Reed is a master of his trade.

Find the white version on the flip.
