Betty Adewole, Mariana Santana & Malaika Firth for Prada’s 1920s Harlem-Inspired “The Iconoclasts”
The project was originally launched in 2009, when four leading fashion editors took over the visual identity of Prada stores in four fashion capitals around the world.
W Magazine‘s fashion and style director Edward Enninful re-envisions Prada’s Spring 2014 men’s and women’s collections with a twist of the Harlem Renaissance.
“Miuccia Prada’s work always begins with a conversation,” said Enninful. “Drawing from this notion, I looked to the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ for the SS14 installment of The Iconoclasts series. As the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ was a period of original thought – when creative minds inspired and embraced a new cultural identity – I felt that this was an appropriate narrative to incorporate into this season’s Prada collection.”
Photographed by Emma Summerton, “The Iconoclasts” images also features Nika Cole, Ophélie Guillermand, and Irene Hiemstra. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes video below.
