Prada has tapped legendary Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar to lead the brand’s latest Fall/Winter 2017 campaign alongside a 30-second short film titled Auteur. The images are photographed by none other than Willy Vanderperre.
According to Prada, here is what they said about their collaboration with Almodóvar:
“One of the few remaining auteurs in contemporary filmmaking, the cult Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar is universally celebrated for his unmistakable creative imprint, distinct aesthetic and unique, “Almodóvariano” point of view. He is the ideal protagonist to star in the new chapter of 365, showcasing the Fall/Winter 2017 Prada menswear collection. He is an embodiment of iconoclasm, across all disciplines”.
Almodóvar is, of course, best known for winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2002’s Talk To Her. His recent film was the 2016 Palme d’Or-nominated drama titled Julieta.
