Ohhh I do love a dapper suit, but I ESPECIALLY love it on the back of Gary Oldman, Garrett Hedlund, Jamie Bell, and Willem Dafoe. Especially Jamie Bell, more than a whiff of male model about him, no? I first spotted this collection ages ago and knew I recognised the mock-Victoriana, mildly Gothic vibe and today I read an article describing it as Steampunk... LIGHTBULB MOMENT!

I wanna be friends with THEM!
Totes bizarre, but all I know is that Prada took something super weird and made it super hot. Genius!
