Prada have just released their “Real Fantasies” Lookbook for the Fall/Winter season. The lookbook is a creative pop-up scrap book of inspiration behind the collection, featuring the models wearing the most stand out designs from the collection. Prada projects the future of fashion as a retrofitted past. Set within a dystopian society of machines and jagged geometries, genetically perfected clones roam digital colonies. Each scene depicts an antiquated landscape within a galaxy of characters engrossed in oblique and possibly deviant power dynamics.
