what goes better with a Prada african-oriented printed dancer? well a pair of neon-orange Giambattista Valli sandals, one of the most beautiful flats of summer 2011



this is what i’m all about the last month, sleeping and waking up with south pacific islands on my mind. you could say it’s work and pleasure at the same time.

Prada woven leather shoes and the butterfly sunglasses, Katerina Psoma exotic jewelry, tropical flowers and the “Hula” book by Taschen, all spread on my new (old) vintage formica dinning table.

Luxurious neon-stoles, giant sombreros wrapped in electric stripes and bold banana prints come to life on some of the world’s best models: Mariacarla Boscono, Tati Cotliar and Kinga Rajzak alongside with Prada’s new discovery Arizona Muse. Vibrant and playful fashion images shot by long-term Prada collaborator Steven Meisel.

Meisel captures the models in exaggerated dance poses and freeze-frames, inspired by the legendary jazz age entertainer Josephine Baker. These gestures become animated in the campaign film, also by Meisel, where a funky-jazz soundtrack and rapid movements create a pop atmosphere.
