Asymmetries and Ambiguities

April 29th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Steven Meisel delivered his visual quintessence for Prada’s pre-fall 2015 campaign. Appearing determined with penetrating glares, the duos Maartje Verhoef, Niels Trispel, Willow Hand, Artur Chruszcz, Aya Jones, Johannes Spaas, Natalie Westling, Finnlay Davis, Julia Nobis, & Tim Schuhmacher are a mixture of the freshest new faces and some Prada favorites. If Julia feels familiar it’s because she can add this to her Meisel-résumé, marking her second one for the brand along with her four covers of Vogue Italia. The pre-fall looks work tartan prints and mild pomp against the understated, and the introspective group executes that identity well, preparing us for the colder days to come. In Prada’s own words, the images play with “asymmetries and ambiguities” and elicit “elegance, poise and dare”. The campaign has the definitive feel of Meisel’s classic, cast-centric work and Miuccia’s visionary originality.

Valentino’s Youth Quake

January 15th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Looking at the names behind many of the seasons campaigns can often give you a sense of déjà vu. For whatever reason, brands almost always go with a certain set of established photographers; Meisel, Klein, Teller, Testino – all incredible, but at this point they are also the usual suspects. It is rare for a new name to make its way onto the campaign list, but this season Valentino‘s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli went with relatively unknown photographer, Michal Pudelkal-pudelka-to-shoot-spring-ads-8108958″>Telling WWD they went with a new photographer specifically for the fresh perspective, “Talent must be supported.” says Chiuri “He is not well known, but we were impressed by his images; you can see strength and fragility at the same time. His aesthetic taste is poetic, and he has a cinematographic vision. He is not informed on fashion, he has more of an artistic path and it’s interesting to see how he works, with preparatory sketches, as he draws the sets for the photos.” The choice makes for a refreshing campaign, models Vanessa Moody, Grace Simmons, Hedvig Palm, Maartje Verhoef and Clémentine Deraedt feature in a series of ethereal shots created on the beaches of Punta Ala.
