“Timelapse”, Prada and Willy Vanderperre’s creative collaboration for SS17, isolates the collection’s intentions to elevate and explore the complexity of modernity. In echoing, fluorescent-lit hallways, elevator doors soundlessly open to the platform where low meets high—as elements designed for function meet those exuding only elegance.
What separates the past from the present? Perhaps it is a reimagining of femininity. In “Timelapse”, the present is seen through a surveillance-like lens that points to Prada’s tech-loving start, while keeping a close watch on the future state of fashion.
