This is one of my most favorite Prada Menswear campaigns ever.
These male models have to be some of the most interesting casting choices for Prada that I can remember. In some ways, I am reminded of Dior Homme S/S 06's ad campaign where an unconventionally handsome male model was casted as well. That ad campaign introduced the unique beauty of Federico Mosquera. Whereas this ad campaign does the same, a cast of models introducing unconventionally handsome males; some bearing prominent noses and thin lips, and in our society don't we favor the opposite? Not for a second do I think they need to compensate because the models are handsome in their own right, thin lips and all. While not required, I think it's important fashion does this.
With that said, I love the photography of these ads. The group shots, profile shots, floor shots, and 3/4 showcase the clothing handsomely. I applaud Hedi Slimane's effort.
