Stella Unzipped

July 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The dream team of Kate Moss and Stella McCartney go together like pb & j – the duo are close friends, Moss is frequently seen wearing McCartney’s sleek earth-friendly wares on her off time and they’re close friends to boot. Moss has been the face of McCartney’s seasonal campaigns six times before so it’s unsurprising to see her in the new fall ads, but the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) images keep things interesting by juxtaposing Moss in the fall collection with shots of glaciers and zippers to create an appealing collage effect.

July 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The red hot Anna Ewers is proving herself unstoppable with a full slate of high profile work that keeps on coming. Now the Bardot-esque beauty finds herself on the cover of Vogue Paris with an arresting shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) that downright sizzles. Clad in transparent wares chosen by editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt and exuding a confident sensuality beyond her years Anna looks every inch the star.

The Calvin Universe

July 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The labels may be different, but there is a spirt that unites the many lines of the Calvin Klein empire. During campaign season the mega-brand always manages to create a stir and for fall they unveil five new campaigns, distinctive yet unmistakably Calvin. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) shoot Calvin Klein Jeans & Underwear enlisting Lara Stone and Matthew Terry to provide the prerequisite sex appeal. The #mycalvins hashtag is emblazoned across Mert & Marcus’ beautiful black and white portraits of the duo and is sure to resonate with the social media obsessed.

For Calvin Klein Collection and Platinum advertising David Sims shoots serene images of CK favorites Vanessa Axente and Clark Bockelman sporting the memorable F/W collections with stylish flair. The collection ads with their striking mountainside backdrop provide an especially beautiful showcase for Sims’ minimal style.

Last but certainly not least, familiar faces Edita Vilkeviciute and Tyson Ballou make a perfect couple in the pared down ads for White Label. Sporting coordinating tweeds and knits and looking cooler than thou in Daniel Jackson‘s shots the duo are ideal Calvin representatives conveying exactly the right amount of urban chic.

Family Ties

June 17th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Riccardo Tisci‘s ads for Givenchy have long relied on a familiar theme – family, namely those fashionable characters Tisci counts amongst his band of Givenchy loyalists. As such you’ll always see familiar faces like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Julia Nobis in the mix of a Tisci campaign alongside fresh Tisci approved faces like show opener Veroniek Gielkens, new face Alessio Pozzi and the buzzed about Kendall Jenner. This season the campaign’s lineup even includes a select number of stars whose lineage makes them fashion royalty - Stephanie Seymour‘s handsome son, Peter Brant Jr. makes his campaign debut in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner)’s sleek imagery. With more images set to debut soon only time will tell how many will feature in this seasonal family reunion.

Versace, Versace

May 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Summer has barely started, but fall campaigns are already beginning to roll in. First up, the legendary house of Versace which unleashes an eyecatching set of ads for men and women helmed by none other than Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner). The in your face duo put forth a daring set of images – for womenswear it’s veteran model Stella Tennant starring in at a Versace clad Anna Ewers with a look of longing – is it the handbag she’s after or the decadently dressed Anna? One may never know, but the photos with their saturated colors and Guy Bourdin leanings pack a visual punch and Joe McKenna (Art Partner)’s styling is a wonder to behold. Menswear is all about the beefcake with Filip Hrivnak and Daan van der Deen taking us back to the 90s in bold prints, leather chaps and David Bradshaw‘s luxe mix of sexy Versace standards.
