Miuccia Prada announced Raf Simons as Co-Creative Director of Prada in 2020. Since then, the partnership has been a topic of conversation in our forums. After the duo's eagerly anticipated debut in spring 2021 during Milan Fashion Week, the collection's advertising campaign was discontinued and we had questions that needed to be answered. After a flawless Holiday 2020 campaign by Steven Meisel Miuccia and Raf don't choose a well-known photographer this time. Instead, the couple rely on Ferdinando Verderi and a camera system to capture models like Isa Gustafsson and Dija Kallon from different angles.
According to our forum members, Prada’s latest version feels like a big setback. "NO! Why that after your holiday campaign?" Asked Kokobombon .
"That stinks of Raf … what a shame. After this holiday campaign, I had high hopes, ”repeated aracic .
HFBvrg definitely agreed: "I thought this was a joke or some kind of Instagram project … So disappointed after a wonderful holiday campaign …"

“I would like to believe that the holiday campaign was also a signal of change, but knowing Raf, I also had reservations. This campaign proves that you still can't trust him, ”Ken Doll Jenner intervened.
"I'm already tired of Raf's influence on Prada. As usual, very sophisticated and full of fake intellectualism …" said Lola701 .
YohjiAddict was also overwhelmed. "Very stale, some nice shots, but for Prada it's just so cold and sterile. Prada celebrates life, femininity and a certain joie de vivre. "
" That actually looks like a meme, "emphasized Nomar .
