Quick Vid of the Moment: Prada's Games
What better way to introduce a fall collection than with a tense (and anthropomorphous) game of chess? So much color (and twinkling ornaments, might I add) is introduced to a season marred by the usual suspects, black and neutrals. I gladly welcome the maroons, purples and chestnut shades.
The collection, to those unfamiliar, is based on the dynamics of power and authority. The tailoring is sharp and very strict, only made severe by the brooding color choices and patterns. For some reason the series Game of Thrones came to mind--assuming it was a futuristic and all-female version.
Do you think the video's concept captured the essence of the collection? What do you think of the hair and make-up? Share your thoughts in the comments!
