Prada Brings the Harlem Renaissance to Milan

-------

prada

This Thursday, on the evening of its Fall ’14 show, Prada will fete the latest installment of its Iconoclasts series—a project, launched in 2009, that has seen the likes of Katie Grand, Alex White, Olivier Rizzo, and Carine Roitfeld reimagine Prada boutiques in the fashion capitals. This time around, the house has tapped W magazine’s Edward Enninful to share his vision, and he’s chosen to style the brand’s Via Montenapoleone men’s and women’s boutiques in the image of the Harlem Renaissance. At the women’s shop, Enninful will install a series of black and white mannequins, clad in Spring ’14 and archival Prada looks, and pose them as if they were guests at a swanky Jazz Age era club. (The ambience will be topped off with a glitzy Art Deco bar.) Meanwhile, the men’s store will feature game tables and a blues trio. “The event is meant as a celebration of Miuccia Prada’s incredible work. Hopefully people will leave the event with a smile on their face,” Enninful told Style.com. “It is a very joyful moment, and I hope that people will be inspired by the men’s and women’s collections, the installations in each store, and the culturally inclusive direction of this moment in the Iconoclasts series.” To give us a better sense of what to expect, the editor sent us an inspiration image: Palmer Hayden’s painting We Four in Paris, above.

Insta-Gratification

-------

In the age of Instagram, all it takes is a smartphone to achieve a photo finish, be it filtered or #nofilter-ed. That’s why Style.com’s social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, is rounding up our favorite snaps and bringing them into focus. See below for today’s top shots.

Friday, January 31

In celebration of its #ArtMatters window installation, Bergdorf Goodman has surrendered its account to the visual masters behind the #BGWindows.

It’s hard to pick just one. Riccardo Tisci went on a sharing spree, uploading new photos of Erykah Badu, the face of Givenchy’s Spring ’14 ads.

If our flooded e-mail inboxes weren’t an indication, this photo from the MBFW account reminds us that fashion week is just a few days away.

Cheers to the weekend. Make this one count.

And let us say, Amen. Continue Reading “Insta-Gratification” »

Carey Mulligan Forks Out Prada

-------

Carey MulliganJudging by the archival looks she wore in The Great Gatsby, not to mention her dolled-up press tour, Carey Mulligan knows how to wear a Prada gown. However, after learning about Mulligan’s less chic (albeit hilarious) encounter with the brand pre-Gatsby, we’re almost surprised that Mrs. Prada was so generous with her wares. Mulligan confessed to British Voguethat during her first time at the Oscars, she wore a strapless black Prada number embellished with tiny utensils. And after a few drinks, the actress couldn’t resist the urge to peel off the ornaments. ” I got drunk at the end of the night and started ripping them off and giving them as presents to people, so that was fun,” she said. “I’m pretty sure that was the point of it—that’s how Miuccia meant for it to go, I’m sure.” Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that Mulligan will be at the Oscars this year, given that Gatsby‘s not nominated, but the next time she is, we’d like a seat at her awards table.

Malaika Firth Heads Home to Kenya

Malaiki Firth

It was a year full of milestones for Malaika Firth, who launched her modeling career with Prada’s Fall ’13 campaign; broke through on the Spring runways; and scored spots in the latest ads for Prada, Burberry, and Valentino. She even walked her first Victoria’s Secret show. All that glamorous work deserves a vacation, and Firth—who currently lives in London—spent her holiday break in Mombasa, Kenya, where she was born and raised before moving to the U.K. at the age of 7. “I hadn’t been back to Kenya in almost three years, so I was super-excited to see how much my hometown had changed for the better, and my beautiful family, of course,” she told Style.com. Below, Firth shared some highlights from her trip.

“I helped my grandma with her restaurant, Porini, and spent time in the kitchen learning a few of her delicious ‘secret’ recipes. Here we are waiting for our food to come!”

Marc and Katie’s Double Rainbow

The only thing better than one Prada coat is two—and when they’re worn by longtime pals and Miuccia devotees Marc Jacobs and Katie Grand, the wow factor flies off the charts. Sorry, Hudson, but this rivals Cara’s post as the sweetest ‘gram we’ve seen in a while.
