To celebrate the premiere of Wes Anderson’s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel at the Berlin International Film Festival, Prada has created a special window display at its Berlin address, and showcases collaborative pieces from the film.
Two windows and a dedicated inside set-up feature a selection of exclusive custom-made suitcases and trunks, designed by the luxury Italian fashion brand for two of the film’s leading characters, played by Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton.
Taking inspiration from the brand’s own vintage models from the 1920s and 30s, Prada has designed two exclusive trunks, as well as a black nappa coat for Willem Dafoe’s character.
Visitors to the store can admire the intricate details of the models’ wooden frames, wrapped in soft vachetta leather in oak and natural tones. The cases are lined in peach-pink sateen cotton for an authentic vintage effect, and were given additional custom touches by artist Mieke Casal, who painted the initials of the characters on the leather in typical 20s style.
This is the latest in a series of collaborations between Prada’s creative director and Wes Anderson, the latest being a short film called Castello Cavalcanti.
