Full throttle, fast forward, this is a new untouched chapter of the Pradasphere. We haven’t been here before. Titled ‘Raised Consciousness’ the Prada gang are travelling into a galaxy far far away for Resort 2019. Photographed by Willy Vanderperre, the proportions of Miuccia’s minions is distorted, in a trance. If there was a theme song for this campaign it would be Madonna’s Impressive Instant: “Cosmic systems intertwine, Astral bodies drip like wine, All of nature ebbs and flows, Comets shoot across the sky, Can’t explain the reasons why, This is how creation goes.” Yes, this is how creation works in the Pradasphere, Mrs Prada’s collections fizz and pop out of shimmering glitter that glides around this newfound outer space. Vanderperre does a good Prada dream. And in case you’ve forgotten, this was that show in New York. The collection filled with all that low-waisted, belted slouchy pants and cute mini skirts, good prints as per usual and all grounded in those warm browns and rich oranges. Eat it up.
