  2. trumancapote says:

    so now prade looks like Dior..what s the deal…????? ridicolous

  3. Alessandro says:

    I’m so tired of Hedi Slimanes vision … Amazing designer & Dior Homme was better with him but I’m getting really tired of his photography/models etc… same old same old …

  4. josh says:

    i agree, for once, with truman.

  5. imaginarysocialite says:

    i was thinking the exact same thing about the 2 campaigns merging. gorgeous boys though.


  6. Idan says:

    quite an intresting add.. 😉

  7. Keesean says:

    spring 2009 is probably going to have some of the best campaigns in a while. If longchamp’s ads and this collaboration are any sign of whats coming, i don’t think i’ll be able to handle the fabulousness!

  8. bloggerquest says:

    You know, on the long run, images and models like these – and Slimane’s work in general, damage the fashion industry. Because what’s going on here is, all they do is make it less accessible and less attractive, and this is nothing but snobbery at it’s worst.

  9. ferguson says:

    this is just SO TIRED. dull dull dull.

  10. dandy says:

    This is just a strategic business initiative streamlining the overall image of prada in to something more early classic european. It might do well to move backwards in time these days considering the economy

  11. RJ says:

    This ad is interesting; it kind of just looks like the pictures that he took of them that are posted on his photo diary except here they’re dressed in Prada. For some reason, I think it works.

  13. fashion honey says:

    I like these pics – I just googled the simonon kids and they are 14 and 17yrs old! what IS mr rock n roll thinking pushing his kids into this? vile. Not very punk rock is it?

  14. Locatelli says:

    Who cares how old they are? I think they look great. Two lovely looking kids in great clothes. Well said RJ.

  15. Christopher Y says:

    sad sad… ;(
    good-looking boys… but i don’t think this ad works at all… don’t get me wrong, I think Hedi is a very talented designer-photographer… but honestly, what does PRADA and HEDI SLIMANE have in common?!?! aside from minimalism?!?!

    i don’t know about this… the campaign may grow on me but first impression… BAD and SAD!!!

  16. DJ says:

    It’s not fair that they are booked only beause of their name ! They dont glow out some Punk Rock. They are absolutly uninterssting and boring on a PICTURE !

  17. mike-Phild says:

    Slimane is a great photographic genius but this shows his monotonous talent which is evident in his past campaigns for Dior Homme and well his models were really young, so this just reminds me of really a GOOD picture but not just an ordinarily GOOD picture

  18. maxwell says:

    not sure ..im so tired of these 5year old boys selling me this image, that as a man will
    not buy sory prada just lost me i love the patrick p.j last season that is more like it
    please pass this along “get a clue” stop photografing boys…. what is it teen vogue????

  19. Dylan says:

    Hedi Slimane and Miuccia Prada together are an absolute dream team in fashion!

  20. Celeste says:

    i know them louis and claude hahaha

  21. Peanuts says:

    The add campaign isbrilliant, so what if it similar to Dior? It’s not as if every single brand isn’t influenced by others. The whole fashion industry is about inspiring others. The boys look great and the photos are amazing.

  22. Barbara says:

    the boys are very reminiscent of the Outsiders by S.E Hinton. 50’s youth culture/rebellion at the beginning…just hearing the tiny footsteps of little men. they have a very p.dohrety aesthetic which slimane loves, and i could have mistaken the ads for dior…but still they look absolutely beautiful

  23. PATRICIJA says:

    whats men name of the right? I remember you
    for all life!

    ooh What one is the 14 year old??
