A Sensual Touch

December 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When we think about the way in which lingerie is marketed, it’s easy to envision the typical tropes of sexed up imagery and in your face displays of skin, but La Perla‘s latest campaign proves you can market the very best in nightwear while maintaining subtlety. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) create a sensual spring /summer campaign for the venerable lingerie house capturing their new made to measure collection on Sigrid Agren, Ming Xi and Izabel Goulart. Richard Biedul joins the fun as the campaign’s menswear face, looking dapper in layers of textured black. Fabien Baron creative direction serves to anchor the campaign, allowing Mert & Marcus’ elegant images to take center stage.

Balmaniacs

December 12th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Olivier Rousteing‘s vision for Balmain has always been about powerful, provocative women so it seems natural to see his Spring/Summer campaign filled with supermodels. Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and newcomer Crista Cober join forces to play video games and eat cheeseburgers in Mario Sorrenti‘s (Art Partner) action packed ads for Balmain. Sorrenti never fails to bring energy to his images and this time around he makes the usually elegant cast engage in a little combat. If kicking and screaming supers isn’t your idea of a good time fear not, the subtler images have the beauties duking it out via Nintendo rather than clawing each others eyes out. The art direction by Pascal Dangin adds another layer of enjoyment, with patterns and colors perfectly coordinating even as the punches are thrown.

The Ideal

November 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

At the end of every year Vogue Paris selects an star to guest edit and serve as the inspiration behind a special issue. In the past everyone from Tom Ford to Carla Bruni and John Galliano has taken on the role but for 2015 the magazine snags an icon of French culture to serve as the guiding force for the December/January edition. As a model, muse and enduringly stylish presence on the fashion scene Ines de la Fressange represents for many the ideal of the chic Parisienne woman. We can’t think of a better person to see on the frontpage of Vogue Paris and in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) striking stylized shots de la Fressange shows she’s still a force in front of the camera.

Campaign Season!

November 14th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Miu Miu
Ph. Jamie Hawkesworth

Jamie Hawkesworth breathes new life into Miu Miu‘s seasonal campaign with his colorful shots of Natalie Westling juxtaposed against natural shots of abstract landscapes and faded barns. Hawkesworth’s use of color creates parallels between studio shots of Miuccia Prada’s sixties influenced collection of paisleys and mod shapes with the rustic imagery of his outdoor work – together it makes for one of the season’s most striking ads.

Prada

In an enigmatic garden, Prada presents its Fall/ Winter 2015 resort advertising campaign. New faces Adrienne Jüliger, Ine Neefs and Moya Palk pose for photographer Steven Meisel in this interesting composition. The 70s influenced resort wares with their top stitching, boxy skirts and belted dresses show of the casual & feminine side of the Prada look. Meisel’s series of monochrome portraits gives the collection a majestic feeling, even in the shots that call to mind Village of the Damned.

LV Overload!

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one collection that is getting editorial love this September it is Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut for Louis Vuitton. While LVMH is generally no slouch in the editorial department, Ghesquire’s work has gone that extra mile – appearing on the cover of or within the pages of almost every single September issue thus far. For fans of the designer’s work the constant sight of logo printed belts and playful dresses has been an appealing constant thread amidst the past few months of editorials and covers, but how much is too much? Take a look at the line’s recent front page appearances and decide. Stylists show no signs of slowing down with their Vuitton obsession so you can expect to see the iconic luxury label rack up even more covers as the month winds down.
