365 Resort 2018
For the latest facet of 365 unveiling the Prada Resort 2018 collection, photographer Willy Vanderperre captures Kris Grikaite in the Milan Osservatorio, above the 19th century Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, its soaring glass-vaulted ceiling forming a graphic backdrop outside the Osservatorio’s windows.
Titled ‘Perspectives’, this visual identity crafts a series of striking vistas of – and fresh viewpoints on - the Prada Resort 2018 collection. Perspectives are constantly shifted, horizons reinvented. The tension between the season’s inspirations of sport and the elegance of the Belle Époque era are played out here in the constant contrasts between the collection’s key looks and the unique architecture of the Galleria. The strict, artificial geometry of the iron and glass panorama is a potent contradiction to Grikaite’s natural, spontaneous demeanor.
The direction of the new season here is clear: a fusion of past recollections with perceptions of the future, to invent new visions - new perspectives – of the present.

於Synthesis 裡的「肖像」，聯繫了女性本身及其配飾的氣質。並互相強調了彼此間的承物 —— 女性及她所珍視的配飾，都是 Prada 的精髓根本。

Inspired by graphic novels, the backdrop to and influence behind the latest Prada menswear show, the first Spring/Summer 2018 chapter of 365 depicts the actor Joe Alwyn as a postmodern Prada hero. Against the imposing backdrop of the domed glass cupola and ironwork struts of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Alwyn is captured by photographer Willy Vanderperre outside Osservatorio, on the roof of the 19th century structure itself. Establishing Alwyn as a new Prada protagonist, these images elevate Alwyn both physically, and metaphorically. He is a conqueror, an adventurer, an idol. A new, definitely heroic embodiment of the Prada masculine ideal.
