"Prada Banality", Post-Painterly Art VII

or 'Fashion For Intellectuals' (FFI)



1. Chad Wys Nocturne 113, 2011

Another motif in Prada's latest offering is the idea of 'portraiture'. A classical, artistic modus operandi. By misplacing the collars (seemingly as an act of confusion or childhood-ness) our attention is directed towards the face. Distortion is used as a framing technology/trick. A special effect (similar to Photoshop) that aims to trigger one thing: facial emotion.
