Watch as Prada’s A/W 2019 show at the Fondazione Prada’s Deposito flickers into life
There was something spooky going on at Prada’s A/W 2019 catwalk show, one inspired by ghoulish figures like Frankenstein’s monster, The Addams Family’s Lurch and characters from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The uncanny event, held inside the grand hall of performance art-dedicated Deposito space at the Fondazione Prada, featured a stark, theatrical field of lighting. Models strode down a catwalk lined with eerily glowing oversized light bulbs – an illuminated nod to scientific experiments – while guests sat on stools which appeared solid and spiked, but were in fact crafted from points of foam. Miuccia Prada worked with regular collaborators AMO on the set design of the space, one suspended between a science fiction fantasy and reality, the glow of a gothic past and a pop-horror present. Boo!
