Gucci’s Girls

July 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Gucci has always had a clear understanding of its ideal woman and each season it picks a cast that reflects that ethos. This time around Frida Gianinni and co. take things one step further with a campaign featuring seven top models who exemplify the modern Gucci woman. Anja Rubik, Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Nadja Bender, Suvi Koponen, Karmen Pedaru and Natasha Poly  feature in stylized shots by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. (Art Partner) In a season filled with high concept campaigns it’s refreshing to see ads where the clothes and the girls are at the forefront. The collection’s pastel tones and ultra-luxe accessories are front and center in the simple studio shots that make every item look like a must have.

GUCCI

Gucci’s boudoir ready spring collection gets a suitably sensual campaign by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner). Sultry rising stars Amanda Wellsh and Elisabeth Erm pose against a crimson backdrop in sequined pieces by Frida Gianinni, while Tommaso de Benedictis takes center stage in the equally sleek menswear ads.

CHLOE

It’s been a few seasons since Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed the Chloe campaign, but the duo doesn’t miss a beat. With Lou Doillon and Julia Stegner front and center in summery images filled with floaty minidresses and espadrilles, Inez and Vinoodh perfectly capture the laid back look & feel that defines Chloe.

Campaign Brief

January 10th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Stunning S/S campaigns keep coming in, take a look at some of the best ads to hit magazines of late.


BALENCIAGA

Nicolas Ghesquiere (Designer) | Steven Meisel (Photographer) |  Kirstin LiljegrenKremi Otashliyska & Sam Rollinson (Models)

The final Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga collection is given the royal treatment in Steven Meisel‘s elegant new campaign for the luxe brand. Kirstin LiljegrenKremi Otashliyska and Sam Rollinson star in the simple black and white images, which focus on the power of the clothing rather than elaborate set ups or outlandish imagery.


FENDI

Karl Lagerfeld ( Designer & Photographer) | Saskia de Brauw & Kati Nescher (Models)

Karl Lagerfeld shoots the dream team of Kati Nescher and Saskia de Brauw in Fendi’s colorful ads. With accessories serving as a focal point alongside the the vibrant geometric patterns of the S/S collection, Lagerfeld’s shots are a less is more take on Fendi’s opulent glamour.


CHLOE

Clare Waight-Keller (Designer) | Glen Luchford (Photographer) | Camille Bidault Waddington (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Garren (Hair Stylist) | Aaron de Mey (Makeup Artist) | Anatole Rainey (Manicurist) | Fabien Baron (Art Director) | Michelle Lee for KCD (Casting Director) | Caroline Brasch NielsenNadja BenderRosie Tapner & Tilda Lindstam (Models)

 The ultimate cool girls gathering, Caroline Brasch NielsenNadja BenderRosie Tapner and Tilda Lindstam hanging out in head to toe Chloe looking like extras from an especially chic episode of Girls.


GUCCI

Frida Gianinni (Designer) | Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographers) | Karmen Pedaru & Anja Rubik (Models)

Karmen, Anja, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott - when you have all that, nothing more is needed.


JIL SANDER
Jil Sander (Designer) | David Sims (Photographer) | Juliane Grüner and Otto Lotz (Models)

Jil is back! With Sander back at the helm of her eponymous line, it is only natural that the S/S 13 campaign would have a completely different look and feel from what we’ve seen from the brand of late. David Sims shoots futuristic ad images that are completely in line with the streamlined Sander vibe, while Juliane Grüner and Otto Lotz perfectly embody the effortless chic of Sander’s aesthetic.


DIOR

Raf Simons (Designer) | Willy Vanderperre (Photographer) | Olivier Rizzo (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Anthony Turner (Hair Stylist) | Aaron de Mey (Makeup Artist) | Piers Hanmer (Set Designer) | Anna Martynova, Daiane Conterato, Marie Piovesan, Nicole Pollard, Daria Strokous (Models)

We expect nothing less than the pinacle of elegance from fashion’s most storied house and Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) delivers with a series of campaign images that effortlessly capture Raf Simons’ minimalist vision for Dior. The new look (pun intended) of the campaign feels refreshing and completely in line with the collection.

Guccissima

August 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The Gucci look could never be called minimalist but in Love Magazine‘s latest issue, a pared down Natalia Vodianova makes the line’s ostentatious wares look downright austere. The beautiful and simple shots by Alasdair McLellan capture Natalia’s beauty and Katie Grand‘s impeccable styling brings out the best of Gucci’s archival pieces.

After Hours

August 9th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Just what are Saskia de Brauw and Marique Schimmel up to in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott‘s moody Gucci-centric story for Interview? Late nights in the park, cavorting with a mysterious man (who just so happens to be Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan) dressed to the nines in Frida Gianinni‘s 70s inspired collection: it all looks glam, but just a little seedy.

Triple Play

July 27th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Anthon Wellsjo‘s stark YSL campaign appearance, eerily powerful Numero Homme cover  and recent success for the S/S 11 shows mark his emergence as a face to watch for the upcoming season. Frida Gianinni‘s a fan; she put him in 3 looks for the show and chose him as the only young man for the F/W lookbook. Looks like 3 may be the young Swedish sensation’s lucky number; racking up such blue chip devotees in all three arenas (editorial/campaigns/shows) is a rare feat indeed. How Swede it is!
