Prada unveils the iconic Galleria bag in a series of short films from ‘The Postman Dreams 2’

“The Postman Dreams 2” is a sequel following Prada’s first project in 2015 with acclaimed American filmmaker, Autumn de Wilde, starring the iconic Prada Galleria bag, and “The Postman’s Gifts” accessories collection.

In pursuit of materializing this narrative, de Wilde devised her own imaginary vistas and mise en scène, inspired not just by her own obsessions but those of others. Divided into four main stories, “Mr Postman Dreams 2” highlights elements of desire, pleasure and eventual satisfaction as the underlying themes of the non-sequential, fabulist chapters.

The central protagonist — our heroine — is the Prada Galleria bag, a key plot-point in each film. It is a shared focus and object of desire, the thread connecting each of the instalments, alongside our hero, Hollywood star Elijah Wood, as the enigmatic ‘Postman’.  

Humorous and whimsical, with a touch of daydream and moments of pure surreal wit, each film presents itself as a self-contained fragment. These films mimic a fantasy; the Prada Galleria bag is a gift presented by Prada for us to covet and indulge in.
