Italian brand Prada has signed four top acting talents for its latest advertising campaign.

Miuccia Prada once again looked to Hollywood for her heartthrobs. The new menswear campaign stars four of today's most exciting leading men. They are movie star Ethan Hawke, Jack O’Connell, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort (who appeared in the summer blockbuster The Fault In Our Stars last year). 

Craig McDean photographed the cast between London and New York, with a series of close-up images that see the actors interacting with tactile objects from knives to prisms, and which also switch between black and white. The collection's leitmotiv, an overstitched graphic effect in contrasting colour, is also shown off in the campaign, appearing on 1970s style lapels and collars.

While the other thespians are relatively new hands, Hawke is a more established name, with the 44-year-old having first hit the big time with a breakthrough performance in 1989's Dead Poets Society. He received an Oscar nomination for 2001's Training Day, and another Academy Award nomination for his role in last year's Boyhood. – AFP Relaxnews
