WINNER STAYS ON TREND?
Evening Moda Hustlers. Been scrivere about patterned shirts all week. Love this image of Prada SS14 styled by Edward Enninful shot by Emma Summerton for the next in the series of Pradas 'Iconoclasts' editor shop take overs. Edwards was inspired by The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s.
Blue faces: Whos got the chalk?
This is release as too knackered to write it up at mo'.
An electric time of artistic explosion and cultural exchange for the African American community in the United States in the 1920s, the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ represented a new creative spirit. Stars such as Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Josephine Baker and Ella Fitzgerald were born, and the air buzzed and fizzed with jazz and ideas.
Taking this spirit of creativity as his cue, Enninful’s Prada women’s store will be filled with a cast of black and white mannequins dressed in Prada SS14 and archive looks – guests at an imagined 1920s club – complete with glittering art- deco bar, evoking the atmosphere of Harlem. The men’s store will host a cast of black and white mannequins dressed in Prada SS14 and archive pieces, set amongst game tables, 1920s food and cocktails, and the strains of a jazz blues trio. New fashion images shot by Emma Summerton and Enninful will be presented in both stores.
