Front Row at Prada Men’s Spring 2019

FIRST PRADA: “Any time spent in Italy is well spent,” said American actor Nick Robinson at his first Prada show, although for the moment his time in the country was limited to the Italian designer’s event. His summer included “traveling a couple of weeks in the Northwest [of the U.S.], a beautiful area, with as many adventures as I can, but I have no plans yet — I just want to be spontaneous.” Prada tapped Robinson for its most recent 365 campaign, and the actor, seen in Greg Berlanti’s 2018 film “Love, Simon,” said attending the show was “a rare, unique experience,” as he rarely attends fashion shows. “It’s such a fascinating world, and whenever I get the opportunity, I usually take it.”
American actor and singer Algee Smith, also in Prada’s campaign, was equally star-struck. “This is my first show, I’m super excited.” He said that shooting the campaign — his first ever — was “nothing like I expected, we were in a warehouse and there was such an adrenaline rush…” The artist said his next album is coming out, as well as the movie “The Hate U Give,” expected to be released in October. Directed by George Tillman Jr.

Prada Resort 2019

After a fashion show, a critic typically rushes from the venue back to office, home, hotel, wherever, and writes as carefully considered a review as deadline — usually right now — permits.  
Following Miuccia Prada’s cruise show last night, I ignored that deep-rooted conditioning to actually enjoy, rather than fret through, the post-show fete (Tonne Goodman — a delightful dinner companion), and went home to bed after what I thought was quite a strong show. A night’s sleep and some morning rumination told me I was wrong. Prada’s show wasn’t merely strong. It was brilliant.
Not deep-thoughts, esoteric brilliant, but aggressively commercial, resort-long-selling-season-give-me-a-smart-coat-and-pants brilliant. “It’s like a fantasy and the reality,” Prada said, describing her motif du jour. “Of course, [a show is] always a fantasy. It’s my fantasy on what today for me is real.” 
A longtime holdout from the cruise extravaganza, Prada acknowledged that market realities ultimately forced her hand. “Everybody is doing more, and so you have to adapt, more or less,” she said.
So after years of sprinkling women’s cruise looks into her June men’s show, last year she staged a full resort show in Milan. This time she opted for another of her brand’s “homes,” its Herzog &

Prada Unveils Restored Mansion in Shanghai

SHANGHAI – The Prada Group has unveiled its latest restoration project: Rong Zhai is a restored mansion in downtown Shanghai, which will be used as a multi-purpose brand and cultural space.
As well as re-showing Prada’s resort 2018 collection and inviting a select group of influencers and celebrities – including director Baz Lurhmann, actress Zhang Ziyi, model Liu Wen and artist Cao Fei – for an intimate dinner at the mansion on Wednesday, the doors of Rong Zhai were thrown open to 1,000 guests for a cocktail party on Saturday night.
The evening included a performance by actor and musician Ansel Elgort, the face of Prada L’Homme fragrance, and among the guests were Du Juan and Alexander Wang.
The unveiling of Rong Zhai – the name translates to “Rong House” – comes following a six-year renovation. Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli, chief executive officer of the Milan-based group, are not new to such initiatives of preservation. They have supported the restoration of Milan’s 19th-century luxury shopping arcade Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Palazzo Ca’ Corner della Regina, an opulent Baroque palace on the Grand Canal in Venice that was reconfigured as an art space for Fondazione Prada.

Prada Drops Out of America’s Cup

MILAN — Luna Rossa wants out.
Prada’s sailing team said Thursday it will no longer be taking part in the 35th America’s Cup, withdrawing from the competition in disaccord with new regulations voted by organizers. Citing “serious implications” determined by the overturning of rules unanimously adopted by the teams in force since June 2014, principal Patrizio Bertelli thanked his team for the work done during the past year, underscoring that its efforts have been “frustrated by this maneuver that is unprecedented in the history of the America’s Cup.”
“However, in sports, as in life, one cannot always go for compromise, after compromise, after compromise; sometimes it is necessary to make decisions that are painful but must be clear cut, as only these can make everybody aware of the drifts of the system and therefore set the basis for the future: respect of legality and sportsmanship.”
Lamenting “a lack of credibility and uncertain technical grounds for what should instead be the most sophisticated sailing competition in the world,” the team also highlighted “a waste of important resources already invested based on the rules that were sanctioned in June last year.”
The Luna Rossa team was working in Sardinia to set up the new boat for

Prada Sails Luna Rossa Home to Milan

Prada has brought its Luna Rossa AC72 catamaran to Milan.
The 72-foot sailboat, which was among the finalists of the America’s Cup in San Francisco in 2013, has been installed in the Aero-Naval hall of Milan’s Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia (The Science and Technology Museum).
The catamaran, which was transported from Cagliari, Sardinia, and then re-assembled in the museum, will be on public display until at least the end of 2017.
“The presence of Luna Rossa in the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia represents a recognition of Luna Rossa team’s technical and design value and of its continuous ability to compete in this sector at the highest levels for more than 15 years,” said Luna Rossa team principal Patrizio Bertelli. “This boat has been one of the most extreme expressions in the history of naval design: half boat, half plane, it made sailing lovers and especially its team live exciting moments. We are more than happy to put this expression of the Italian design value at the disposal of the public, especially young people.”
Over the next few months, an interactive exhibition will be organized at the museum to explain the catamaran’s design and construction process, as well as to
