Prada is Rethinking Beauty

Agency: BETC Etoile Rouge


Since 1913, Prada has been thinking fashion. From 2023 Prada is rethinking beauty.

BETC’s first collaboration with Prada Beauty unveils the worldwide launch of one beauty vision for the House.

Prada Beauty, the largest launch in the L’Oréal Luxe ecosystem in the last 5 years, will emerge as beauty’s progressive « Rethinker ». With this launch, the brand reimagines existing definitions of beauty to open new, avant-garde perspectives, built on the strong vision of the fashion House.

Rethinked as a beauty launch, Prada Beauty offers two ranges: Skin and Color. Prada Skin offers a full skincare-to-complexion routine featuring high-tech, high-science products based on Adaptogen Smart Technology. Prada Color presents the fruits of a unique collaboration with Global Creative Makeup Artist, Lynsey Alexander and Global Creative E-Makeup Artist, Inès Alpha. Together, they developed a care-enriched, highly pigmented range of soft and hyper matte lipsticks, a diversity of fashion-inspired eyeshadow palettes, and foundations.

BETC Etoile Rouge designed the “Rethinking Beauty” campaign, anchored in enigmatic codes that encapsulate Prada’s minimalist DNA:

HTML Coding: an embodiment of the technological prowess and scientific development behind each product, weaving omnipresent threads throughout the campaign.

Light: an ethereal symbol of performance, framing every product, inverting shadows to conjure up luminous halos.

The Prada Triangle: the iconic House shape, punctuating the campaign to explore product textures, macro science and packaging details.

Prada Green: the most proprietary Prada color. Immediately recognizable and used as a background to create vibrant energy.

Prada Beauty follows the footsteps of signature fragrance, Paradox: minimalist and maximalist, sophisticated and playful, simple and versatile, uniting heritage and technology. The representation of formulas and packaging bring harmony to luxury and responsibility.

To craft this disruptive campaign, agency and brand worked together with celebrated talents, including Photographer & Director, Tim Elkaim, Benoit Delhomme as DOP, Tomorrow Bureau for all 3D and motion assets, and Simon Escourbiac, Christophe Jager and Carl Jager for still lifes. All production was realized in-house with General Pop and Broadcast, BETC’s content factory, to deliver over 1000 assets.

The Rethinking Beauty campaign launches worldwide across print, digital, and outdoor media. With the launch, Prada extends an intriguing invitation to the world, to rethink beauty, with a sense of creative experimentation and exploration, at once unconventional and ever evolving.

This professional campaign titled 'Prada is Rethinking Beauty' was published in France in September, 2023. It was created for the brand: Prada, by ad agency: BETC Etoile Rouge. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Beauty industry and contains 5 media assets. It was submitted 8 days ago.
