Cruise Control

November 1st, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (11)

Resort ads from fashion’s haute houses provide a dose of glamour and some fresh photography, take a look at two of our favorites.

CHANEL

Chanel goes for baroque with a romantic resort campaign starring Cara Delevingne and Saskia de Brauw. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld (naturally) and featuring a sumptuous take on the house’s trademark luxury, the ads merge past and present into one chic package – note the Chanel Boy bag dandling from Saskia’s heel.

LOUIS VUITTON

Vuitton looks to its travel heritage with an atmospheric new campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and starring Arizona Muse. Shot in famous Parisian locales like the Louvre (the Mona Lisa even makes a cameo) and Palais Royale, the ads focus on the “the art of travel” and will appear not just in print, but also in a special film version.

    I love that second Vuitton pic. So cool with the model facing away from the camera. So serene.

  2. Marty says:

    i was all for Chanel but once I LV it replaces Chanel’s typical use of imagery and use of models it’s nice to see Cara but she doesn’t suite Chanel too me. Arizona does even though i’m not to fund of her this LV ad is timeless. 2nd picture isamazing

  3. jake says:

    you can tell arizona has an awful walk even in a still campaign shot. i do really like the second lv shot, mainly because id rather not see arizona’s face than see it. saskia makes the chanel campaign – cara doesn’t suit the make up and the pose is too forced.

  4. Michelle says:

    I absolutely love the new designs for the chanel outfits! they’re to die for. Arizona is definitely working the shoot right; you go girl :)

  5. Joe says:

    LV shots are so sophisticated . LV have done some seriously beautiful films in the past so can’t wait for the new one

  6. Denize says:

    I miss Freja Beha in the campaigns of Chanel.

  7. chingmam says:

    Saskia suite on Chanel but Cara doesn’t, i wish Chanel can use Freja in campaign again even is one time because she is so awesome with Chanel.

    BTW nice to see ARIZONA in LV campaign :)

    Second pic is hot ! Nice campaign

  9. Bruce Edwin says:

    Chanel images are great

  10. Christopher Y says:

    I’m so sorry but I”m getting so bored with Chanel’s ads – simply because the stories are so literal and seriously, the products are tooooo in-your-face.

    However, Louis Vuitton tells a more convincing story with the usage of the products in a more subtle way. The juxtaposition of the model (arizona muse), location and products is just so smart.

    British folklore hyperlinks April Idiot’s Day to the town of Gotham in Nottinghamshire.
