ON THE DRAWING BOARD: In conjunction with the launch of two sunglasses, part of the spring Minimal-Baroque collection, Prada unveiled its “From Drawings to Pictures” project Tuesday night at Prada stores worldwide. The Italian fashion house teamed up with Vogue Talents — Vogue Italia’s annual supplement dedicated to the most interesting up-and-coming designers — to select eight photographers who were asked to shoot creative still lifes of the season’s iconic rococo styles. “Prada gave us a clean sheet. The only guideline was to create a pop-funny mood,” said fashion photographer Rosi di Stefano, who shot the sunglasses on colorful, tropical-inspired backgrounds.

Gotham-city-meets-the-jungle featured in the work of Polish documentary photographer Kuba Dobrowki, whose images combined the shades in a sort of pop-up book. “It took about three weeks to realize the background,” he revealed. “I cut the images from comics, then enlarged them and my four-year-old nephew helped me to color them. He’d just learned to color images in the proper tones, but I forced him to take a step back and use his fantasy. That’s why the elephant is green and the skyscrapers are hot pink.”
