Super scarce, beautiful and majorly impressive Prada look by Albert Watson. Published in 1988, the year of the first Prada prêt-à-porter collection.
Watson's images reflected glamour, luxury and sex appeal in the early years of Italian fashion, and Miuccia Prada too.
Seduction scenes with perfect wallets and handbags and the stylish simplicity of combination of nude body, tumbled hair, satin dress, flowers fabrics, unmade bed, coffee, some metal and some leather, of course the leather with imposing black. Like, the ostrich wallet spilling money or holding a coffee are surely both the story, but not in an obvious way. Brilliant!
In addition, the book includes an interview with Albert Watson about the ideas behind his shoot.
