Not long ago the Devil wore Prada – now it’s Captain Nemo’s turn. The influence of Steampunk is overwhelming in the Prada Menswear Fall 2012 Ad Campaign, where actors Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell and Garrett Hedlund glower at the camera as they model Victorian vests and knee-length coats.
Here are stills and a 10-minute video from the runway show (in the latter, Dafoe appears at 7:59 and Oldman at 8:26).
And Prada offers its own Behind the Scenes video of the print ad photo shoot.
So this is the point where steampunk becomes uncool, right?
(Well, for men anyway– the corresponding womenswear campaign appears to be Victorian-free.)
Does anyone wear fashion?
