Following his “dis dressed” and “dis dressed epilogue” projects, Willy Vanderperre releases a new series of exclusive images photographed behind the scenes of Prada‘s Autumn/Winter 2016 runway show titled “Dis Dressed Redux.” Miuccia Prada’s individualistic approach is portrayed in the season’s narration of the then and now; an attempt to teach the fusion of fashion and culture through the layering of pieces in color collage and prints with bits of ’50s edge, nautical elements, and military detail. Focusing on the spirit of each look, overtop black and white backgrounds, Vanderperre adds to the intensity of Prada’s complex aesthetic universe in a style that follows his own preoccupation with youth—a motif that can also be seen through the photographer’s previous collaborations with Raf Simons, Dior Homme, and Jil Sander.
