When it comes to ads, we've almost seen it all: beaches, desert sand, wheat fields, sidewalks — you get the picture. But Miuccia Prada has managed to give us something we haven't yet seen for Prada's Fall campaign: models sitting in a puddle of oil. Juxtapositions are common in fashion and this is one of the slickest yet. Here we have delicate models Kendra Spears, Julia Hafstrom, Prada favorite Ymre Stiekema, and Anna de Rijk, in equally delicate gowns, dipping their feet in something not so delicate. Of course, their handy rubber Prada boots make this possible. Such moodiness wouldn't fly for Spring, but for Fall, it's perfect. What do you think — are you as captivated as I am?
>> ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL —The first photo from Prada's Fall 2009 campaign has leaked, and instead of horses involved as previously reported, the setting is four girls — Prada favorite Ymre Stiekema, Katlin Aas, Julia Hafstrom, and Kendra Spears, who is said to be the main focus — in a boat, surrounded by water; this particular image is supposedly one of the "most interesting," according to someone who claims to have seen the full set by Steven Meisel. The Miu Miu Fall 2009 campaign, which has yet to appear, will reportedly have a strong androgynous theme. [TFS, TFS]
