Campaign Candy

January 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle


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.


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.


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 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.

The Early Show

November 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Forget about seasonal dressing, pieces from the spring / summer collections are already showing up in editorials. Prada‘s menswear line is given the full treatment in i-D Magazine, with a lengthy editorial starring boy of the moment Benjamin Eidem. The dream team of Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo creates a mix of cinematic black and white images and crisp studio shots. Given the overt golf references throughout Miuccia’s S/S show a full on course themed story complete with nine irons is not far behind, but Willy would never be so literal. Vanderperre instead shoots Eidem looking elegant and sexy – floppy hats and pale blue pants be damned, the boy can bring it!

Minimalist Mood

January 27th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Some of Spring’s most compelling campaigns take a less is more approach, with a focus on the combination of great models and impeccably constructed clothes. When you’ve got Jana Kaye, Melissa Tammerijn, Julia Nobis or Erin Wasson striking regal poses in deceptively simple dresses, you really don’t need much more. The Jil Sander ads takes the trend one step further, all but erasing Daria Strokous‘ beautiful face in some of the spring shots. Willy Vanderperre is certainly on a roll this season!

Plain & Simple

Proenza Schouler mixed with Reeboks, Calvin Klein silk paired with pink Nikes? The eclectic mix of high, low, chic and sporty must mean that Olivier Rizzo is styling! Rizzo brings his one of a kind perspective to the pages of W in an editorial by frequent collaborator Willy Vanderperre. Showing of spring’s relaxed looks and a set of fashion’s most distinctive beauties, the pair crafts a subtle and subdued story with an easy going style. Tali Lennox, Lindsey Wixson, Kinga Rajzak, Iris Egbers and Victoire Maçon-Dauxerre, all look phenomenal.

Women On Top

June 28th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The new issue of V lands on newsstands July 8th and the sexy body theme couldn’t be more evident once you look at Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo‘s ‘A Woman In Full’ editorial. Using shapely retro styling and some of the industry’s loveliest girls, Willy and Olivier turn the clock back, to the days of the hourglass figure; Karolina Kurkova, Jacquelyn Jablonski and Miranda Kerr have never looked better and the story is completely in line with fashion’s current curve obsession.
