Rave Reviews for Prada’s Pre-Fall 2016 Campaign Starring Vanessa Axente (Forum Buzz)

If there’s one major fashion brand whose advertising campaigns we love to see each season, it’s Prada. So you can imagine our delight when the campaign for Pre-Fall 2016 unexpectedly landed on our forums. Photographed by long-term Prada favorite Steven Meisel, models Vanessa Axente (below), Lorena Maraschi, Sasha Pivovarova, Vittoria Ceretti and Fei Fei Sun are captured in a fresh, light and airy space showing off Miuccia Prada’s uniform-like designs. Making for a nice departure from the dark, moody and mysterious mainline campaign for Spring 2016, the love affair between Prada and Meisel has worked its charm once again.

“Fantastic to see her back under Meisel’s lens and for Prada,” approved TREVOFASHIONISTO straight away.

Also unable to contain their excitement was thatsfierce, raving, “Vanessa is back. I was waiting for this so bad!!! She looks so good here. Fresh, clean and flawless.”

“Vanessa Axente at Prada again!!! Amazing comeback with the master Steven Meisel! I know he loves her! So happy for this! It’s a good campaign! Vanessa fits the brand so well,” exclaimed a more than elated lilgruner.
