To me, Prada is one of the most iconic fashion brands. Miuccia Prada is a true innovator and has changed the face of Italian fashion. While brands like Gucci, Versace, and Missoni exude sex appeal, Prada made minimalism chic. Always with an underlying utilitarian vibe - she did make the backpack a coveted high fashion accessory - Miuccia is always ahead of the curve.
That said, what do you all think of her Spring/Summer '07 campaign shot by Steven Meisel and featuring model Sasha Pivovarova? Prada was one of the leaders of the headgear trend and she has taken satin and made it a completely wearable fabric. The shadows create a mystique - Sasha looks like she's peering into a far off, exotic land. And the brown oversized fringed handbag plays a big part too, offsetting the sleek, fluid lines of the satin ensemble. While I don't like that Prada always features models that look like mannequins, to me, this fab ad looks like a modern bouquet of exotic flowers.
