So this finally happened…
DesignTaxi: Prada Menswear Goes Steampunk This FallPrada has recently launched its Fall/Winter 2012 ad campaign for their menswear—which features a stunning collection of steampunk inspired clothing—modeled by Gary Oldman, Garrett Hedlund, Jamie Bell and Willem Dafoe.
According to Prada’s website, “The campaign—shot by David Sims—layers different codes of dress in a subtle parody of power and role-play.”
“Exaggerated poses and conspiratorial glances hint at the game, a palm solemnly placed on the heart or into a pocket with precise formality.”
Modeled by four of Hollywood’s leading men, one can imagine them smoking cigars, drinking brandy and playing a game of cards while discussing gentlemanly affairs.
Holy fucking shit.
Add another reason why I’d want to be a man to the list.
