Celebrating a new Prada Cahier handbag, derived from the French word for ‘notebook’ and itself a repository for ideas and collection of stories, the fashion house introduces The Delivery Man – three distinct but interconnected short movies, titled Midnight Request, Woman’s Best Friend and Priorities of Love.
The stories unfolding via three chapters tell a story of suburban unreality and urbane sophistication, each charting a different valiant attempt by the delivery man to ensure his precious cargoes reach their final destination. One takes place in a nightclub; another in a Hollywood Hills mansion; the third in the Delivery Man’s own home, with an unexpected twist. An Academy-winning actor J.K Simmons plays our enigmatic hero, the eponymous delivery man, alongside Porn Klementieff, Sasha Lane and Bahia Gold – a cross-generation selection of talent, embodying the distinct personalities of Prada women.
These films explore both variety and universality, the appeal and contradiction and a singularity of desire. The delivery itself – the Prada Cahier handbag becomes a gift gratefully received in any circumstance.
The Delivery Man first episode is now available online at prada.com and through Prada social media. The second and third episodes are to be unveiled on October 13th and 15th, respectively.
