DUBAI: Lebanese blogger and entrepreneur Karen Wazen has landed herself a new fashion campaign, this time with Italian luxury label Prada.
The fashion house is unveiling its fall-winter 2021 womenswear collection on Thursday at 4 p.m. (Saudi time).
Wazen, who is an eyewear designer and has a brand bearing her name, shared images with her 5.5 million Instagram followers featuring statement pieces from Prada’s upcoming collection.
The Dubai-based fashion influencer wore a satin top and pants in purple, pairing the outfit with an off-white purse and black pointy-toed heels. Dangly black Prada earrings completed the look.
Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons will have a conversation to discuss the new launch following the new collection’s release.
Marc Jacobs, US model Hunter Schafer, film director Lee Daniels, DJ Richie Hawtin, and Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas will join the conversation virtually. The talk will be moderated by YouTube’s Derek Blasberg, who is a US journalist and author.
The collaboration between Prada and Simons was first announced last year.
The Italian has been the creative force behind one of the most successful luxury brands for 30 years, while Simons is considered to be one of the fashion world’s biggest talents.
His future has been the subject of intense speculation since he left Calvin Klein in 2018. He was previously creative director at Jil Sander and Dior. He also has his own label.
