Sneakers
From the ground up
Prada / Kenta Nakamura

Building on the first part of its Cloudbust Landing project, Prada has again tapped three emerging photographers to explore young urban culture in three distinct cities: Shanghai, Fukuoka, and London.

The project, dubbed Cloudbust Landing 2, sees each photographer given a different theme and city. They were then asked to reveal their interpretation of the identity of the Cloudbust. The themes are: The Open City (Shanghai), The Intimate City (Fukuoka), and The City After Hours (London). Check them all out below.

Shanghai

Photographer Shuwei Liu takes an underground approach in Shanghai, capturing a group of friends roaming the city. The sneakers’ vivid colors stand in stark contrast to the grey concrete jungle.

Fukuoka

Meanwhile in Fukuoka, Kenta Nakamura focuses on a crew of locals in primarily private spaces, having fun and wearing their Cloudbust.

London

The last series, set in London and captured by Clara Nebeling, shows a group of friends exploring the city at night while wearing their vibrant Cloudbust sneakers that stand out against the dark cityscape.

Check out all three series above and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
