Fantasy made real

In a castle so tall

Where dreams come true

For all that enter

Girls in dresses become princesses

And boys dressed to the nines

Princes, the next in line

We inherit the dreams of yesterday

In castles like these

From the fantasy of those who came before

And we also inherit the dragons

Of our parents’ past

But the castles are worth fighting those evils

When our dreams, in these castles

Come to fruition

I tend to avoid too-famous references… I prefer to invent my own fantasies that are much more complicated.
—  Miuccia Prada on the ‘Real Fantasies’ lookbooks that she produces for each collection by infusing fashion photography, art inspirations, nostalgia, and short films in order to create imaginary worlds that also evoke real emotions.

PRADA REAL FANTASIES FALL/WINTER 2012

Commissioned by Prada, the Rotterdam-based AMO has created a super retro-futuristic video campaign drenched in digital, mixed media motifs. Models are depicted amongst a backdrop of an advanced society of machines and geometric landscapes, envisioning the future of fashion as a retrofitted past. Surrealism at its chicest. Check out the full film (above)!
