Tom Holland Fronts Prada SS ’22 Menwear Campaign – Footwear News
Spider-Man wears Prada.
‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ star Tom Holland is the new face of Prada’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection campaign. The actor, famously linked to style superstar and girlfriend Zendaya, becomes an “embodiment of the Prada man of today” in a series of three looks shot by photographer David Sims, the luxury brand says Italian.
Following the theme of the seasonal campaign “In the Mood for Prada”, Holland appears in a series of portraits playing with the camera and striking poses intended to highlight the relationship between body and clothing. He is seen adjusting his spring red leather biker jacket, playing with the elongated sleeves of a black knit cardigan and folding his arms in an ivory shirt with navy-inspired patterns.
In a short statement on the campaign, Prada said, “The power to act is to tap into a well of personal experience to convey a mood, emotion and feeling that, though fictional, borrows its reality from one’s own humanity of the performer. These images cement minute actions and reactions, close and sweet moments – the relationship between clothing and body, the gestures of dressing and undressing alive in the imagery.
Holland last dressed in Prada for the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” the biggest blockbuster of this pandemic wave. The chocolate brown ensemble featured a double-breasted blazer with pointed lapels, as well as multiple rows of dark buttons and pleated trousers. Holland’s suit was layered over a classic white shirt and black tie.
Holland has been the face of Peter Parker, Spider-Man’s alter ego, since 2016, when he starred in “Captain America: Civil War,” the 13th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe saga.
