Prada’s first Sotheby’s auction was hailed as a success, surpassing both companies’ expectations, bringing in 439,362 euros. This compares with an estimated total of between 248,600 and 337,200 euros.
Six photographic prints shot by Gigi Hadid, Daniel Arnold and Philip Meech were among the auction’s hot tickets. All proceeds are being donated to UNESCO’S COVID-19 Global Education Coalition initiatives.

Belgian designer Tom Van Der Borght won the Première Vision Grand Prize at the 35th edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography, which wrapped on Sunday.
The 42-year-old impressed with his cocoon-like, intensely decorated men’s wear creations combining bright colors, psychedelic graphics and textures for what he terms “a true bombardment of the senses.”
Titled “Seven Ways to Be TVDB,” the collection featured digital knits incorporating dead stock merino wool, transparent acrylic and Lurex.
Faces were obscured by masks covered in transparent sequins or spiky protrusions, and one model — wearing a dress embroidered with slogans including “I’m not a monster” — was carried down the catwalk by two attendants wearing colored masks in Van Der Borght’s likeness.
