Prada Presents SS21 Menswear Collection Through the Eyes of Five Creatives
Including Juergen Teller and Willy Vanderperre.
Prada has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2021 menswear collection in photo and video form in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of a traditional runway show, the Italian house presented the new season in five different “chapters” created by five artists: Juergen Teller, Willy Vanderperre, Terrence Nance, Joanna Piotrowska and Martine Syms.
Teller’s chapter is presented as a series of photographs, taken in his signature irreverent style, while Piotrowska takes a more somber approach in black-and-white clips showcasing the movement of the collection. The video chapters are accompanied by a traditional lookbook allowing viewers to take a closer look at the new collection.
Menswear options include slim-fitted suiting in Prada’s nylon Pocone fabric, as well as casual athletics-inspired separates in mesh and semi-sheer nylon. On the womenswear front, Pocone nylon is fashioned into pleated A-line dresses and skirts affixed with Prada’s triangular logo hardware. Lace-trimmed slip dresses and casual jersey loungewear also make an appearance.
