"minimal baroque" Prada Sunnies Campaign...

Since spring seems to be in the air, I decided to do a post about something that is inherently "sunny" (pun fully intended) and something which signals that warm weather is on its way in while cold weather is (hopefully) on its way OUT! So what better to way to celebrate the sun that is shining than to put on some funky sunnies and stroll outside in the glow? That being said, I came across this creative Prada ad campaign, entitled "minimal baroque" a while ago, but just didn't feel right posting it until now, when the snow is melting away and the birds are chirping...
According to Block Magazine, Prada commissioned several fashion illustrators to translate their sunglasses into pieces of art...Ever the trend-setters, Prada's S/S 2011 campaign features various animated animals and people alike sporting the brand's signature sunnies...As stated by Block: "talented up-and-coming illustrators Ivo Bisignano, Marcela Gutierrez, and Andrea Tarella interpret the bold, elegant frames through pastel and watercolour..." I included some of the illustrations here...enjoy...
Hope you are all enjoying the fabulous weather...happy Thursday everyone...
Love K

Interesting... I like the first & second one. Not too sure about the animals head/Human bodies though... but just my opinion. I think it's a cool idea though, turning fashion into a different form of art.
