prada fw2011-12 advertising campaign

 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.

pierre marcolini

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). Oh and a spicy carré with tabasco. 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 .
