Signs of a Changing World

Read a part from Prada Journal’s winners

The Italian brand continues to foster artistic talents with its annual Prada Journal. A high brow reading, the journal is the perfect match between fashion and literature. Each entry accredited was inspired by Prada’s eyewear line with the following question as the source of inspiration: “What are the signs of a changing world? And what situations can we envision? Taking a good look at the details might give us the answer.” Start taking a sneak peek at the winner essays in our post, and if you feel like this is just not enough be sure to lead yourself here to read the whole thing. 

 

Theory and Practice of Pears by Viola Bellini

“First of all, how to pick a pear. In the last few days I have walked around with a big yellow Abate pear in my bag, and asked a few people to pretend to pick it. I am the tree, I would say, and extended my arm like a branch holding the pear between my fingers by the stalk. They all looked at me as if I were crazy, but the inaccurate way in which the poor pear was picked from my arm/branch made me see that the matter was not at all a trivial one.

So then: the thumb and all the fingers except the index should be held on the neck if the pear is of the Conference or Abate varieties, too big for the palm to contain their entire volume; whereas the same fingers can be placed on the bottom in the case of William, Red William, Kaiser or the sweet Coscia pears. The index finger should be held away from the pear, like a pinkie raised away from a Prosecco wine glass at a country wedding, and placed on the point where the stalk – the pear’s umbilical cord – is attached to the bark of the branch: a firm snap of the wrist, as if to uncap one of the many bottles of warm, flat beer that we passed to each other among the tree rows, and the index will have applied the right amount of pressure to the stalk, so that it can be detached from the branch, absolutely intact.”
