Prada FW 2016 Collaborates with Christophe Chemin

Prada FW 2016 Collaborates with Christophe Chemin

18 October 2016

Prada is known for taking everyone's breath away during their runway shows and they tend to use the most magical prints for their creations. For the Prada Men's and Women's Fall/Winter 2016 show, the brand collaborated with artist Christophe Chemin who drew the collection's prints.

Christophe Chemin is a French self-taught artist whose versatile and multitudinous creative out-put defies categorization. For Prada's Fall/Winter 2016 collection, Chemin had different ideas for the menswear and womenswear: 

"For the men’s show, I delved into the classical concerns of European mythology and art history, entwining the symbolism of Greek gods and goddesses with Giotto-style still life works, a Fassbinder-inspired fake movie poster ‘Impossible True Love’ and a dystopian fantasy of Noah’s Ark. "

For the women, Chemin’s designs took a more focused approach: he chose six months from the French Revolutionary calendar and brought them to life in vivid colour.

"If you examine the designs up close, you will discover hand-scrawled titles like ‘Fructidor’, ‘Floréal’ and ‘Pluviôse’ — each linked to the harvest, the weather and the seasons. One design even replicates the eye-shaped tattoos on my fingers." Chemin

When talking about creating the prints for Prada, Chemin says: “The artwork was done from the beginning with the knowledge that it would end up being used on clothes,”

“I don’t like the word “prints,” because they are not “prints”,  they are artworks that I related to Miuccia’s visual universe and vocabulary, mixing very personal obsessions of mine with ideas that were directly inspired by her.

The designs are extraordinary and we just love seeing fashion as as a piece of art!
