In a world first, Prada introduces Candy, a virtual muse as the face of a fragrance. Born from a glitch, Candy is ethereal, driven by a continuous quest to question, connect and evolve. Inspired by the native world of TikTok, a series of shorts directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and captured by photographer Valentin Herfray see a physical fragrance, Prada Candy, encounter a virtual muse, Candy. As her own reality glitches, she begins to perceive another, expanding her existence through the power of technology. Free of constraints, her curiosity grows, new creative perspectives are opened and with them, an invitation to Rethink Reality.


The Prada Candy campaign series is realized by award-winning film director, screenwriter and producer, Nicolas Winding Refn. The lauded Danish auteur behind Drive, The Neon Demon and the Pusher trilogy lends his bold, intensely imaginative vision to Prada Candy's alternate, re-imagined reality, creating a space where the known interacts with the new.


With an ability to challenge what we know through the art of perspective, French photographer Valentin Herfray pushes the limits of modern digital photography to extend our visual experience, defying the traditional medium of capturing imagery. Working between art, fashion and technology, Herfray's ability to play with perceptions of reality sees him deftly capture Prada Candy's digital muse between dimensions.


The Prada Candy bottle designed by Fabien Baron is a trigger of creativity, just as joyful and free-spirited as the scent contained within, as it embraces an unexpected mix of colors and finishes. A dynamic take on Prada's signature Saffiano leather hugs the top of the bottle in a band of shocking pink while the flacon bears the refined Prada logo in sleek, gold lettering. The pump, perched on its golden neck like a futuristic black half-moon, is the striking finale.


Prada Candy rethinks fragrance addiction and offers a free-spirited take on gourmand scents. Its unconventional olfactory balance combines a joyful and addictive caramel accord with noble and warm benzoin resin, which brings unprecedented sophistication and elegance, to creatively fuse with a silky and enveloping cloud of white musks.
