BlueBlood.net reports that Prada has just previewed their fall line for men. And it is steampunk!
These David Sims photographs of Willem Dafoe, Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell, and Garrett Hedlund are really beautiful. Have to love the collision of couture detail and quality with steampunk aesthetics and style. It is interesting to look at this in light of the success of the Prada Final Fantasy images. The actual Fall 2012 Prada collection for men is a gothic dream, with all the different dark textures of high end fabrics.
Fall/Winter 2012 Campaign
Four of Hollywood’s leading men in a contemporary character study, Gary Oldman, Garrett Hedlund, Jamie Bell and Willem Dafoe, also stars of the autumn/winter fashion showcase in Milan, are the distinct subjects of this extraordinary gallery – transposing cinematic codes to the world of menswear in the series of three-quarter length portraits.
The campaign – shot by David Sims –layers different codes of dress in a subtle parody of power and role-play. Exaggerated poses and conspiratorial glances hint at the game, a palm solemnly placed on the heart or into a pocket with precise formality.
