Ad of the Day: Prada

French love triangles never felt so good as in Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola's delightful short film

Announcing! Brandweek is headed to Phoenix, Arizona this September 23–26. Join us there to explore the future of marketing, discover cutting-edge strategies and network with the best in the business.

High-fashion ads shot by celebrity directors usually amount to little more than pretentious, narrative-starved ad-sturbation. Prada, though, often delivers something more, something refreshing for the category—a cool sense of style mixed with (gasp) an actual sense of humor.

We saw this last year in Roman Polanski's wonderfully witty short Prada film with Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter—a piece that was captivating, with a wink, while still embodying the brand's elegance.

Now, we have a new Prada short film, for a fragrance this time, Candy L'Eau, directed by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola.
