The Prada mannequins

Spring/Summer 09′ campaign.

One girl is missing, probably Anna Jagodzinska. I can’t quite figure out who’s who but all of them look similar, in the exact same hair style, makeup as from the runway show. They are looking at all directions except the camera. Interesting, and very Prada.

The campaign looks boring at first but I like this little chaos the girls are having, and it is very straight forward— minimalist studio shoot  with great lighting (the glowing floor, store window much?). A group shot like this is kinda expected though, because it’s a supposedly 8-girl campaign. (Balenciaga has 10 girls, but David Sims is going for solo shots, according to one of the models).

And it does look a little similar to:

Balenciaga Spring 06′

One thing for sure, it would surely sell—  in one shot they have 7 looks, complete with bags and shoes. 

 

ETA: The inspiration

“IT’S all about “new classicism with a rebel edge” for Prada’s spring/summer 2009 campaigns, shot by Steven Meisel and Hedi Slimane for womenswear and menswear respectively. Inspired by ancient stone bas-reliefs and a desire to return to basic emotional and physical dimensions in classical art and early culture, see a line-up of gorgeously glowing models, seemingly connected by dance as they don those elegantly crumpled dresses adorned in bows and bras and those towering shoes for the womenswear campaign images.”

    i like the image…yes it’s another image dominated by caucasians–but i still like it! i like the beigey tones, the lit floor, and the fifth dress to the right. 😉
