Missoni/Prada S/S11 Campaigns

It's that awesome time of the year again... Despite the freezing cold and the utter weirdness of our globally-warmed planet's weather we are being bombarded with bright-colored, piña colada-remeniscent, super summery campaigns.

Is it me, or are the (early-80s-influenced) mid-90s making a steroid-powered comeback this season? I mean, ultra bright colors, coexisting with thick black outlines and stripes, infused with a densely african feel. Call me crazy, but Missoni wakes all my Benetton glory memories from the 90s! Call me crazy II, but I like where Prada is going this season.

Missoni SS11

Prada SS11

Directed by Steven Meisel, featuring Arizona Muse, Kinga Rajzak, Zuzanna Bijoch, Mariacarla Boscono and Tati Cotliar. I really like the soundtrack Mirando by Ratatat.
