Oscar’s Joie de Vivre

January 23rd, 2015 Posted by Janelle comments (2)

Oscar de la Renta‘s final collection for his legendary line is given a fitting tribute with the brand’s spring/summer campaign by Steve Hiett (London: D + V Management , London: D + V Management , Berlin: Shotview Photographers Management). With Daria Strokous and Sasha Luss serving as blonde bombshells on the go and Heitt capturing their every move through Miami’s toniest enclaves, the campaign crackles with energy. Natasha Royt styles the duo in coordinating pastel looks from the spring collection, bringing out their inner society girl with gingham prints and plenty of floral embroidery. The resulting ads are upbeat and energetic without ever losing the elegance that defined de la Renta’s timeless aesthetic.

Alexander Wang’s Wild Ride

January 21st, 2015 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

The latest campaign for Alexander Wang is bright, colorful and filled with covetable clothes, but it works mainly because the images ring true. Is there any designer more likely to charter a party bus and rave across New York with a bevy of models?
Steven Klein (Art Partner) vibrant ads take the sneaker-centric spring collection and reimagine it as a rollicking good time complete with neon colors and glimpses of the Manhattan skyline peeking out from the bus’ open roof. Pascal Dangin‘s skillful art direction keeps the campaign’s LED imagery and flashing lights from ever seeming chaotic, while Karl Templer‘s styling keeps the focus firmly on those killer clothes. Models Sarah BrannonAnna EwersBinx WaltonDylan XueLexi Boling and Vanessa Moody are all along for the party, making each photo seem like an expression of youthful jubilance.

Raf Reflects

January 20th, 2015 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Image juxtapositions are de rigueur in fashion campaigns lately, but no this season one pulls it off quite as well as Willy Vanderperre does in the new ads for Raf Simons. Simons’ S/S15 collection was itself an ode to image pairings and moodboards so the concept seems fitting. With Luca Lemaire serving as the collection’s poster boy and the richly detailed pieces providing visual interest from every angle, Vanderperre shows all sides of the collage influenced look. The strength of these shots lies in their simplicity and Vanderperre succeeds in making even the most complex pieces seem minimal.

McQueen’s Majesty

January 20th, 2015 Posted by Janelle comments (2)

Alexander McQueen‘s seasonal ads always push the boundary between art and commerce and for spring the brand enters new territory with a David Sims helmed campaign featuring Karolin Wolter. Sarah Burton‘s spring collection was heavily influenced by Japanese culture and that vibe is subtlety reinforced in Sims’ imagery. The red lips and pencil thin brows worn with aplomb by Wolter provide an added touch of retro-drama to the already striking photos.
