A Milan State of Mind
Maxime Ballesteros Shoots the Prada Fall/Winter 2017 Womenswear Collection
Miuccia Prada designs with two hands — one summons simplicity, while the other corrupts its counterpart with subversion. Her designs are stalwart, yet never stale; light in the ability to innovate, but weighted by a characteristic timelessness. Past and future meld in each garment, with irreconcilable references somehow settling comfortably beside each other. With Prada, what is classic becomes new, again and again. To celebrate the launch of Prada at SSENSE, we commissioned photographer Maxime Ballesteros to shoot a photo story in Milan, birthplace of the brand’s beloved head designer.
