Photo Depository: Prada Photography Collection

In Photo Depository section Bird In Flight shares with its readers interesting photo archives it digs up from the web. In this issue: fashion show footage, advertising campaigns and boutique buildings of Prada fashion house.

In December 2014, Prada fashion house launched a new website with a catalogue titled, “A Future Archive.” It contains fashion show photo shoots, photographs from commercials, look-books and podium videos starting from 1987.

The catalogue illustrates changing trends and accents in the work of the fashion house under Miuccia Prada who became head of the company in 1979. One can see fashion shows with runway stars like Kate Moss and Claudia Schiffer. Prada is also known for its cooperation with famous architects. The archive has photos of the so-called “epicentres” — buildings in New York, Los Angeles and Tokio that unite the functions of a boutique, a public space, a gallery and a lab.
