Unexpected choice. A bit irrelevant but it still looks surprisingly good. I like it

Toby looks stiff bored and that is quite frankly very off putting. If there was come other expression on his face I actually wouldn't have minded him as the model for the campaign.

I was really hoping Alexander Beck would get the campaign. He fits the offbeat collection so perfectly and considering he was an exclusive for Prada, it only made sense. Or any of the other models, such as Thomas Engel Hart, Robin Ahrens and Harry Goodwins. They could have breathed some youth energy into the 50's/70's vibe collection.

This campaign couldn't be anymore lackluster. What's even worse is that, it makes the collection look that much more dated. It just doesn't capture the energy from the show. And Tobey looks possessed in the second shot.

such an odd and unexpected choice for prada, but, then again, she's known for making odd and unexpected choices so this sort of falls right in line. i still think she should have one campaign for men and women especially in a season like the one she had for fall/winter 2011.

I don't really care who is he, I do like it and in my opinion he fits Prada's aesthetics.

Surprising as it may be, I like it In fact, I like it very much.

Oh, and good to see David Sims for Prada, that's another interesting choice.

I don't really understand the choice of model especially after past season's campaigns. It would have been wonderful if some of the models from the show could have featured. Otherwise, it probably works well from a commercial stand point for Prada. I'm not too keen on the shots, though.

The second image is a play with lights, the first is a play with geometric formations, so these things make the ad really intelligent. I dont like Tobey, but they found his great angle on the second shot. I have no doubt this campaing will look wonderful in print.

and here goes the 'models are better than celebs' discussion.

clearly Miuccia liked the idea of him fronting her brand, so he's more than good enough for all of us.

Well it's Miuccia, you know. She likes to surprise. And quoting her own words...

Quote:
"His mood is transfixed and pensive, full of vibrant intensity and mystery," added designer Miuccia Prada of the images, which were shot by David Sims.
...I think it's all beautifully executed. Hiring Sims for this was such a good idea.
