With Spring 2015 campaigns coming at us at full force, it looks like fashion giant Prada has carefully curated an exceptional menswear spring 2015 campaign with the finest of gentlemen and household objects.
Prada brings together four of Hollywood’s leading men to lend their onscreen presence in aid of a series of photographic images conjuring up their own secrets.
The Spring/Summer 2015 campaign features Ansel Elgort peeling a tangerine, whilst Miles Teller scribbles on his hand with a pen, Ethan Hawke cuts a postcard all while Jack O’Connell sips on a glass of water… alluring and mischievous.
The campaign which was shot between London and New York by Craig McDean, appropriately created a balance between object and holder with focus shifting to close-ups of hands, faces and placing emphasis on something unknown. According to the release; “As if the magical forces that make the world seem normal have, for an indeterminately short time, revealed their strangeness.”
The leitmotiv of the collection lies in the stitching, which produces a graphic effect (within large, small, in contrasting colours) all transforming and mixing the classic codes to create new ones. With the addition of modern proportions and silhouettes that invoke the 1970s, it brings forth a sense of peculiarity.
The images of muted colour changes to bold black and white, and then back again to emulate the four actors’ fragmented mental focus. The campaign portrays a silence, a space for secrets.
Well it is without a doubt there’s no fault in Ansel Elgort’s stars, Miles Teller leaves us Whiplashed, Ethan Hawke has grown out of Boyhood and Jack O’Connell has broken us…
