TOBEY MAGUIRE FOR PRADA MENSWEAR FALL WINTER 2011


prada unveiled their new fall winter 2011 menswear campaign today. ex-spiderman star tobey maguire was featured in the campaign. casting wise, i really like it but also thought it was a little strange. mr. maguire is much more in line with prada's image than say, the skinny pale models that graced their campaigns for several seasons. strange, because i am not feeling anything to be honest. it's like a non-event really. there were quite a few interesting pieces from this collection, but not sure why the rather simple styling above.

i do love the photography though. the soft focus and subtle light leaks which i've been trying to master for, like forever. no surprise that these were lensed by one of my favourite photographers, mr david sims.

so tell me, what do you think of this campaign?

  1. I think his jacket is a little ill fitted no?

  2. I found him to be a rather odd pick. Random, actually.

    But he looks kinda edible to me, so I'm not complaining.

  3. Very tame for such a brilliantly Prada collection. I mean lurex, argyle, box bags, oversized shapes the list goes on. To style it in such a way seems overly casual for such a distinctive brand.
    That said the collection was brilliant and I'm sure those who thought the same won't think otherwise because of this shoot.

  5. Its such an odd casting,I dnt think it will add anything to his career,from a afar he is just a Prada model,hence they should have cast a model.

  6. Well the collection was odd (and horrible from my point of view) so the casting fits.
    We don't want Clement anywhere near this clothing!
