Prada takes a twist in the road in its Fall/Winter 2019 campaign, described as ‘Anatomy of Romance’. Prada’s modern aesthetic is anchored in a love of humanity anchored in the intoxicating love and appreciation of life in nature. The enticing vibe is sorely missing in our urban environments, inviting us for a moment of reflection and taking time “to smell the roses” metaphorically in images by Willy Vanderperre.
Models Anok Yai, Freja Beha Erichsen, Rebecca Longendyke, Sora Choi and more wear Prada’s military-inspired, unisex uniforms required for the growing fights for rights in our daily lives. The campaign is romantic, yes, but fiercely realistic and quietly confrontational at the same time.
Willy Vanderperre captures what Prada calls ‘Seditious Simplicity” or complexity subverted as Miuccia’s powerful women take center stage at New York City’s Piano Factory. Gloss pink columns disrupting rough concrete, dynamic perspectives and warped lens effects all contribute to an alternative view of the familiar and the seditious simplicity of the collection. Read on at Prada.
Prada’s model cast includes Anok Yai, Gigi Hadid, Jing Wen, Kyla Ramsey, Lineisy Montero, Manu Miloqui, Maud Hoevetaken, Mona Tougaard, and Sasha Knysh.
T Magazine's August 19, 2018 Fall Fashion Issue focuses on 'The Shape of Things to Come', lensed by Willy Vanderperre. Editor Hanya Yanagihara turns her eye to four models of the moment -- Adesuwa Aighewi, Anok Yai, Alyssa Traoré and Sora Choi-- styled by Alastair McKimm in CDC, Calvin Klein, Sacai, Prada, Balenciaga and more.
To promote the Fall Winter 2018 CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC runway collection, Chief Creative Officer Raf Simons released an otherworldly session with regular collaborator Willy Vanderperre, who created futuristic images starring Lulu Tenney, Julia Nobis, Freja Beha, Liya Kebede, Erin O’Connor, Fernando Albaladejo, and Luca Lemaire. Olivier Rizzo styled the innovative shoot captured in Utah.
In talking about the Fall 2018 collection, Raf Simons, Chief Creative Officer for CALVIN KLEIN, described it as an "allegory for a meeting of old worlds and new worlds, relating to the discovery of America, the 1960s Space Race, and the twenty-first century information age. Reflecting the notion of democracy, there is no cultural hierarchy: the mixes emancipate clothing and references from their meanings, from their own narratives, and collage them to discover something different – a different dream.”
