Campaign Confidential

July 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The ads keep on coming, check out a few more of our faves from the season – take a look back at our previous campaign favorites post too.

Balenciaga

While we can’t imagine either Nicolas Ghesquière or Steven Meisel spending a lazy weekend at the shore, the Balenciaga campaign is set in such an idyll. Fresh faces Anniek KortleveLinn ArvidssonHirschy HirschfelderJulier BuggeJuliet Ingleby and Rosie Tapner lay out on the dunes in those eccentric looks from F/W.

Chanel

Simple, clean and led by a stellar cast, Chanel’s fresh ads feature Kati Nescher, Lindsey Wixson & Cora Emmanuel as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld is behind the camera – which depending on your perspective you either love or hate, that said the casting on this is flaw free.

Dolce & Gabbana

A taste of Italian nostalgia shot by Giampaolo Sgura and featuring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Bianca Brandolini – each image feels like a still from a Pasolini film.

Valentino

Valentino once again gives us a vision of pure class from the iconic Deborah Turbeville. Elegantly color coordinated looks on Jac JagaciakCaroline Brasch Nielsen and Frida Gustavsson - what’s not to love?

Fendi

When you have Joan Smalls and Karl Lagerfeld you don’t really need much else. With the natural setting and powerful poses, this new ads remind us a bit of Anja Rubik‘s S/S 10 ads for the luxe line.

La Famiglia

December 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The beauty of family is at the heart of both of Dolce & Gabbana‘s seasonal campaigns. Inspired by the sirens of Italian cinema Anna Magnani, Monica Vitti and especially Sofia Loren, Giampaolo Sgura shot ravishing Italian beauties Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti for the womenswear images. Mimicking the feel of lighthearted classic comedies set in Southern Italy, Sgura captured Belluci and Balti as they enjoyed “afternoons at the beach, Sundays at home, family parties, the first boyfriend, and tender moments with the children,” it all makes for a lovely set of images that represent the traditional, yet sensual side of the Dolce & Gabbana spirit.

‘s menswear images continue the theme with gorgeous sepia tinted portraits featuring actors Giuseppe Fiorello, Francesco Scianna, Filippo Nigro, Thomas Trabacchi, Primo Reggiani and Chiara Francini as an especially elegant family. The candid and atmospheric photos feel vintage, but those exquisite D&G separates are completely modern.
