Back in 1986, Prince (now King) Charles was derided when he freely said that he talked to plants. "I just come and talk to the plants, really. Very important to talk to them, they respond," the outspoken enviromentalist said. The current monarch's approach to the relationship between humans and the rest of the natural worldhas stood the test of time, and is no longer met with mockery. Au contraire. In this ad for the luxury fashion house Prada's autumn (fajl) and winter 2023 collections, the conversations are unspoken, but a connection brought about by the unheard words among their floral, fabric and human interpreters does make itself felt as the visual ad unfolds. Agree or disagree? The Italian fashion house, founded 100 years ago in 1913, explains that: "The #PradaFW23 campaign unfolds as a series of imaginary conversations between flowers and stars.... interpreting words by Pulitzer-winning writer Michael Cunningham". The stars featured are actor Benedict Cumberbatch, Prada Ambassador and model Hunter Schafer, actor Kodi Smit-McPhee, Prada Ambassador and actress Letitia Wright, and Prada Ambassador and actor Li Xian.
