Campaign Candy

January 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

MULBERRY

Mulberry’s spring ads are the stuff of Tumblr dreams, Lindsey Wixson, Frida Gustavsson and a giant melting ice cream cone by Tim Walker? The sugar level is off the charts, but who can resist such a sweet treat?! Shot on location in Brighton with set design by  Andy Hillman and styling by Edward Enninful, the girlish ads are joyful and creative. Those cream colored Bayswater satchels and bright high heeled wedges are almost as tempting as the massive hard candies.

ROBERTO CAVALLI

Steven Meisel takes three legendary supers and one outstanding newbie to create a classically minded campaign. Naomi Campbell, Kristen McMenamy, Karen Elson and Daphne Groeneveld join forces for a striking ad that brings to mind Avedon’s epic Versace ads from the 80s.

PROENZA SCHOULER

Natasha Poly as a modern pin up girl is a campaign concept we can get behind. Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo create an enticing series of images that capitalize on Ms. Poly’s natural allure and the appealing mix of pattern & texture found in Proenza’s spring collection. The clothes are front and center here and they look phenomenal: sign us up for a pair of those heels!

AKRIS

Akris is known for their appealing take on minimal fashions and the spring campaign takes that idea and runs with it. Karim Sadli shoots Daga Ziober in the backseat of a vintage car wearing Albert Kriemler’s gorgeous designs.

En Vogue

July 18th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

No offense to cover girl Sarah Jessica Parker, but we like our American Vogue best when it focuses on models. Steven Meisel‘s winning feature in the August edition is a good example of why: featuring 10 of the best girls working, styled to the nines by Marie-Amélie Sauvé, the studio shoot is a gorgeous showcase for the best seasonal wares; a Celine blouse worn with a Fendi fur and a Dries skirt – pretty impressive combo.

The mix of favorite faces is also serves as a great way to illustrate issue’s Age theme. Kristen McMenamy, Karen Elson, and Audrey Marnay join newbies like Anais Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun and each shot looks great. That said, the range of ages could be even greater – wouldn’t it have been nice if Vogue had pushed the casting mix one step further and included Carmen dell’Orefice?
