Prada and Miu Miu design director, Fabio Zambernardi, has createdÂ David Hallbergâ€™s costume, the principal dancer for the Bolshoi Ballet and American Ballet Theatre, in occasion of the performance Fortuna Desperata by Italian artist and filmmaker Francesco Vezzoli .
Francesco Vezzoli saysÂ â€śThe costume which Prada has made for David Hallberg is the perfect metaphor for hisÂ Fortuna DesperataÂ performance. Its pseudo-renaissance style is philological, yet the materials are ultra-modernist. Like the dance steps that Hallberg will perform, his costume will seem like a futuristic version of a painting by Beato Angelicoâ€ť.
To create the stunning costume Prada used meticulous fine-tailoringÂ techniques and a combination of classic and contemporary materials. The costume was created entirely by hand.
