Prada’s men line has been featuring actors in the ad campaigns, but they have been young men, posing alone in the shots: Tobey Maguire and, recently, Michael Pitt. The newest for Autumn/Winter 2012/2013 stars Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Willem Dafoe, all together! A group shot such as this could only be made possible after Prada’s IPO in Hong Kong in June last year since we can guess that the men assembled like this won’t come cheap.
There’s something of another era about the above picture. I sense a Jack-the-Ripper vibe. Or Maybe it’s just Gary Oldman looking Holmes-like but murderous. Oh, the blood-red background too!
