i copy-pasted below the text from the new Prada adv campaign press release because the description is as good as the pictures
A sensuous playroom is the setting for the new Prada womenswear campaign, shot by Steven Meisel. It reveals a new laid back approach to elegance in a relaxed atmosphere laced with sophisticated fashion knowing.
This campaign exemplifies an-anything-goes attitude to fashion maximalism but is delivered with a unique sense of grace and casualness. innocence meets refinement in this timeless tableau. The delicate sensuality expressed by the fresh-faced models is at-odds with the sophisticated fashion on display: tromp l’oeil boots in grown-up velvet masquerade as girlish knee-highs, oversized coquettish lapels are paneled in fur and python bags are cradled like cute teddy bears. It’s a dressing room of contemporary desire disguised as a playroom of childhood dreams.
At its centre the models emit a youthful luminosity and nonchalant sophistication, creatively capturing the subtle duality at the heart of this new collection.
Ladies & Gents

walks and photos from Brussels and Gent, drinks in Le Fontainas one of the cutest gay bars in town and great amounts of ethiopian food at Kokob with two dolls
my main activities during my small trip to Brussels was to walk around and buy expensive chocolate and vice versa. my friends took good care of me and drove me to the best chocolaterie of Belgium and probably one of the best worldwide, a temple of haute patisserie and cocoa bins. Pierre Marcolini apart from the permenant pastry collection, presents from time to time ephemeral inspired ones, such as the current “Pastel” that you see below, a chocolates collection with fruity filling infused with lime, passion fruit, mango and yuzu (yummy)
As this was not enough, i couldn’t resist buying the framboise heart-shaped bijoux, and truffles and of course macarons, that are compiting mercilessly Ladurée .
oh and a spicy carré with tabasco.
Saturday morning in Brussels, a fairy tale flower shop, my girl in a field of peonies and nature morte at the Magritte Museum.
Monday in Stockholm, in an old factory that now’s being used for Gant presentations and events, Kostas had the chance to see all Gant collections for next spring/summer, inspired by classic films such as the Great Gatsby for “All American Prep” and Out of Africa for “An American in Morocco”or the revival of older ones, like the 60′s inspired “Rugger” collection.
full of color and as american as it gets.
Talented Mr. Fantastikoi Hxoi hits again, with a collection of new remixes and re edits – and you know he’s damn good at it.
wait no more, for here is the hot stuff, tagged under the file names of sun-drenched psychedelia, library music and assorted oddities (!).
Listen and run to download while you can, sunburned music at its best.
