Prada reanimates the sensual yet sporty mood of Prada Linea Rossa
Prada has relaunched the classic Prada Linea Rossa as an evolved, reactive technical collection. In 2018, Prada Linea Rossa underscores its foundations and origins in 1990s sportswear, drawing on the precision of the lines and refinement of aesthetic that defined the look of the era. “Today, this ideology still has resonance,” says Prada Group.
Prada Linea Rossa first launched in 1997. Its new incarnation debuted at the men’s and women’s Fall/Winter 2018 shows.
To reveal the new Linea Rossa, Prada create a new campaign with a digital video serie developed under the creative direction of Michael Rock/2×4 New York, directed by Arisu Kashiwagi, and styled by Lotta Volkova, where svelte Prada Linea Rossa logo springs to life and assumes the role of protagonist, leading characters Daan Duez, Kris Grikaite, Taemin Park and Anok Yai into the heart of extreme settings filled with stylized red stripe sun rays, rain drops, wind streaks, and snow flakes.
