Prada cast actors for her F/W 12 Collection
Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell and Tim Roth pose as villains for Prada.
If Prada’s fall/winter collection 2012 was a movie, it’d be focused on the villain, or at least the rigid anti-hero. Her latest show entitled “a parody of male power”, Miuccia Prada did a very profound character study including a handful of Hollywood elite like Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell and Tim Roth. And if you accept that actors play archetypes, then each of them represented a particular kind of man.
Serious, but laced with eccentricity, the show took you back to the era neo dandyism of the 30’s. It wasn’t only the soundtrack of Michael Nyman’s music from The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover that introduces Tim Roth as a gangster or Adrien Brody as an exquisite dandy. Gary Oldman was particularly impressive as the capo di tutti capi, with a pair of red-lensed sunglasses in his breast pocket, which reminds you of the ones he wore in Bram Stocker’s Dracula.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” Shakespeare said it before, but Miuccia Prada presented it at her best for Fall 2012.
The artist takes architecture to a new level – literally, with his mind-bending series of flying houses.
