Since leaving Boardwalk Empire, Michael Pitt has been establishing his career in modeling. Particularly, high end menswear, appearing in Prada ads and, most recently, with french actress Lea Seydoux for rag & bone. Guided by a strong british tailoring influence, rag & bone's philosophy is a classic yet modern everyday look. Each piece (whether it be men's or women's) is framed by classic construction and high quality fabric for the perfect fit, with a handmade feel. They're recent launch ads for Fall/Winter 2013 went over well with fashion audiences everywhere, and Pitt/Seydoux were at the forefront of the campaign. “For us, it’s all about using individuals we view as iconic characters and Léa and Michael absolutely represent the spirit of the brand. They’re both genuine, cool people,” explains Marcus Wainwright, one half of the Rag & Bone team. “The premise was simply them in rag & bone doing whatever came naturally.”
We have undoubtedly seen a marvelous assortment of campaign videos to welcome in the Fall/Winter 2013 season. In order to keep the trend going, Prada has released their own short film which announces what expect from thier fall 2013 collection. Inspired by classic movies and art, the italian-based fashion house has created a fantastical, dream-like video that may, in terms of production, be the most unique thus far!
Employing the Rotterdam-based creative agency, AMO, Prada takes on a new artistic direction. The video is titled, "Real Fantasies" in order to create a relationship between their line and a dream state, or imaginative reality. The video shows live action models within an artistic display of flat colors and geometric shapes, giving viewers the impression that they are living in an alternate, artistically-driven world.
