I had no idea Prada did (funded?) these kinds of creative endeavors. Nobi Post authorFebruary 10, 2008 at 8:35 am/ prada is very much into art, architecture and stuff. they have a museum called fondazione prada. i think mariko mori was one of the first artists that they exhibited several years ago. this young artist’s work is simply amazing, and i like his website, too. Octavian February 11, 2008 at 6:48 am/ I expected James Jean’s inspired animation since the day Prada anounced it. I was able to see it on youtube the day of the presentation (5) and I simply love it. It’s so inspiring in terms of smell! You can forget all Prada scents (+ their boutique) and keep only this imaginary flower. I can say only … wow, that’s a hard brief to work on as a perfumer. I hope they will translate it in a fragrance, maybe ambiental, maybe a scratch&sniff fragrance on their big wallpaper in NY store. Nobi Post authorFebruary 11, 2008 at 10:58 am/ I saw it on the the same day, but the effect was gradual for me. I ran into this video on other blogs for a few times, and started to really like it along with James Jaen’s work. On the other hand, I don’t care much about Murakami’s work in general. We were at the same school, and the post was just a salute. Yukiko February 11, 2008 at 11:34 pm/ Haha!Nobi-san,I think so too about Murakami’s Art work. I don’t care about his art work but I care about his marketing and plot(LOL). I love what Prada did & do. I really admire their taste for the art. Especially Prada Aoyama by Herzog & De Meuron. And this time, what a beautiful imagination! Cocorosie are A＋. Now I’m in a trouble. To buy Noah’s Ark by cocorosie is too fearful as much as to buy collection book of Hans Bellmer… Nobi Post authorFebruary 13, 2008 at 12:45 pm/ Prada Aoyama is an absolute masterpiece. Another masterpiece in the area is Tod’s by Toyo Ito. I’ve never thought Toyo Ito would make such a great building. They are both not big and deserve to be called 珠玉.
