Art / Fashion Mix: A Quick Look - STINKFISH For Prada

I'm a big fan of the world famous, international artist Stinkfish (from Mexico City, living in Colombia), and I love Prada.  I cannot afford either, (especially the collaboration Prada dress or handbag with his iconic, signature), but I can snap a quick photo when the security guard isn't looking. Stinkfish did this colab last year for the arrival of the Spring/Summer 2014 collection, along with a few other talented artists, (see below)  featuring handbags and attire.  The store on Broadway in Soho has decorated the back entrance with the mural below, but I doubt these items are still in stock. 
Also see some of my action photos of the artist while working on a his new mural in Bushwick (Waterbury St./Merserole St.), these are also part of my #instantartexposure photography project (on Instagram), and a few other Stinkfish pieces in the area.
Press Info:  "Prada's Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show , commissioning muralists Miles "El Mac" Gregor, Mesa, Gabriel Specter, and Stinkfish, and illustrators Jeanne Detallante and Pierre Mornet, to engage themes of femininity, representation, power, and multiplicity on the walls of the Via Fogazzaro show space in Milan. The muralists set to work directly in the space adorning their walls with fantastically rendered large-scale portraits that were showcased on clothing and accessories in the collection. Also designed was an exhibition booklet handed out to the audience providing information about the artists and their work, blurring the lines between fashion show and exhibition space. The spatial concept, designed by AMO, featured an inverted catwalk surfaced in industrial rubber, with walls reshaped to maximize their structural variation and provide multiple planes on which the artists could realize their visions."
