Spring Forward

January 29th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

You wouldn’t know it from the frigid cold gripping New York City at the moment, but spring is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: new campaigns. After our round­ups of the best Spring 2014 womenswear ads (here and here), we thought it was time to give the guys their fair due. Here’s our picks for some of our favorite men’s campaigns for the season, all of them featuring rich explosions of color to help us through these dreary, gray winter days.

Hugo Boss HUGO line
Last July, photographer Pierre Debusschere hit the Utah salt flats—home of the famed land­speed trials so powerfully illuminated in Rachel Kushner’s breakout 2013 novel The Flamethrowers— for Hugo Boss’ energetic, athletic younger label. Victor Nylander, Sung Jin Park, and Andrew Westermann are joined by Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Kasia Struss and the lambent, translucent hues of what look like shimmering mirages, add a soft tinge of glowing color to the blinding whiteness of the pristine sodium crust.

Jil Sander
The namesake designer may be once again dearly departed, but she has left her artistic, distinctly modernist fingerprints all over the house’s latest campaign, shot by David Sims. Ben Waters and Edie Campbell wear their sharp, graphic ensembles —distressed plaid for him and tangled florals for her against a faded background combining the strictest geometry with the soft delicacy of nature.

Kenzo
In their second collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari‘s idiosyncratic art magazine Toilet Paper, designers Humberto Leon & Carol Lim have demonstrated their revolutionary talents extend far beyond their charming runway designs. A relaxed Devon Aoki perches upon a trout carried on Paul Boche‘s shoulders, both of them dressed in a soothing, swaying ripple print inspired by the surf of Leon and Lim’s native Southern California and lit by the harsh glow of red neon.

Patrik Ervell
After making a stunning campaign début with his stark black ­and­ white images of Max Von Isser in an overgrown field last Fall, Ervell enlisted up ­and­ coming photographer Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) for an appropriately luminous series of images that find Michael Lange wearing his sailing­ inspired pieces against the digitally enhanced shine of an impossibly rich and vibrant oceanic sunset.

Salvatore Ferragamo
The Italian house’s campaigns can sometimes have an anodyne feel of anonymous luxury to them, but Spring finds Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) bringing a vivid pop of classic Modernism to their images. Stalwarts Sean O’Pry and Daria Werbowy bask in the radiant warmth of the sherbet­colored angles and columns that bring to mind the cheery, iconic designs of the Mexican Pritzker Prize–winning architect Luis Barragán.

Proenza Perfection

January 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When you release one of the best collections of spring it’s only fitting that you follow it up with an equally appealing campaign. Jack McCollough + Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler enlist David Sims for atmospheric ads that capture the essence of the label’s runway show. Working with themes from technology’s merger with handcrafts, to nature and interiors, Sims creates a contrasting series of images that pop off the page. Marie Chaix (Art Partner) styles Charlotte Lindvig and Harleth Kuusik in straight from the runway looks, including those memorable metallic pleated skirts and exquisite copper breastplates. The sophisticated pieces stand out against the rustic background and the intimate feel of the campaign is only heightened once you learn it was shot on location at Jack & Lazaro’s Massachusetts home!

January 8th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Essential Edie

Edie Campbell continues to break the mold. Fresh off the heels of a stellar season that included opening Marc Jacobs’ final show for Louis Vuitton, walking the walk for everyone from Calvin Klein to Balenciaga, Edie Campbell is making a splash in the editorial pages this month. After snagging yet another Steven Meisel shot cover of Vogue Italia, Edie finds herself on the front page of the new Vogue Germany in a striking shot by Daniel Jackson. In the image Edie’s famous jet black mullet is tousled and she sports Lanvin’s gold ‘Happy’ necklace – considering her career trajectory these past few months it’s safe to say that happiness is an emotion Edie’s very familiar with.

Ediemania

April 8th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Is there a more buzzed about girl on the block than Edie Campbell? Fresh off the heels of a very mod-British Vogue cover by David Sims, the Penelope Tree-esque beauty is front and center on Vogue Italia in a dramatic Steven Meisel shot that takes her into edgy territory. April belongs to the versatile Ms. Campbell, but which side of the Brit beauty do you prefer – punk or pretty?

Campaign Candy

January 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Appealing new ads from fashion’s young, innovative designers.

PROENZA SCHOULER

The S/S ads from Proenza are all about a dreamy mood and David Sims‘ imagery featuring the cooler than thou duo of Julia Nobis and Irina Nikolaeva creates a strong, yet ethereal vibe that goes well with the brand’s eclectic Tumblr influenced collection. The mismash of visual styles and inspirations found on the social media site are mirrored in Sims’ colorful, collage approach to the campaign.


THEYSKENS THEORY

Even before Olivier Theyskens took the helm at Theory the brand was about the kind of effortlessly beautiful clothes that girls want to wear. Now that Theyskens is heading things, the famed designer has added an appealingly cool vibe to the collections and the line’s seasonal imagery. Girl of the moment, Wylie Hays is front and center in Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)’s stark shots as is a highly covetable new Theory handbag.


3.1 PHILLIP LIM

Phillip Lim hits the streets with a stylish campaign that shows you just how much his designs stand out. Katryn Kruger and Franzi Mueller strut down crowded NYC sidewalks in head to toe Lim working those chic Spring patterns and bringing the punky 3.1 look to life in Alessio Bolzoni‘s ad images.


BALMAIN

Balmain keeps it simple with a beautiful David Sims campaign featuring Manon Leloup. When you have a beautiful girl and the intricately decadent designs of Olivier Rousteing, you don’t need much more to entice your audience.
