A lifetime of upsetting dodgeball incidents may have left us with an aversion to team sports, but if gym class were more like the new Prada campaign, we'd be suiting up in no time. Lensed by Steven Meisel, the Italian fashion house's spring '14 campaign depicts an unblinking cadre of models giving us their best "to beat your team will be a cinch" stares. Seriously, if these ladies were holding soccer balls instead of Saffiano-leather purses, they'd be the most badass varsity squad, ever.

The campaign is a fitting tribute to Prada's latest ready-to-wear collection, which combined bold, athletic-striped tees and tank dresses with crystal-encrusted tube socks, heeled sneakers, and coats and skirts emblazoned with fearless female faces. With both the collection and campaign, Miuccia Prada continues to exalt her personal vision of powerful women — a vision that, we're grateful, includes a liberal dose of kook along with all the luxurious fabrication and detailing.
So, where's that sign-up sheet? We'd brave dodgeballs to play on #TeamPrada any day.
