Ad Network

January 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

More fabulous fashion ads keep coming in, take a look at the latest.

TOM FORD

Tom Ford – Designer & Photographer | Orlando Pita – Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury – Makeup Artist |Karlina Caune & Simon Van Meervenne – Models

We can always count on Tom Ford for an epitomized version of modern glamour and his latest campaign delivers with sleek shots by Ford himself of Karlina Caune and Simon Van Meervenne. Playing to his strengths the designer / photographer / director / provocateur creates simple images that focus on those decadent designs. Who needs exotic locations and complicated set ups when you have the beauty of those golden to the knee sandals and fringed shoes! Karlina and Simon look pretty damn good too, both models capture the slightly dangerous and oh so sexy vibe of Ford’s ethos.

 


ALEXANDER WANG


Alexander Wang
 – Designer | Steven Klein – Photographer | Pascal Dangin – Art Director | Malgosia Bela – Model

Given the memorable way Wang presented his S/S collection’s glow in the dark dresses, we were expecting a campaign with flashing lights, or blinding neons from Alexander Wang. Never one to go for the obvious thrill, Wang enlists Steven Klein and Pascal Dangin for an evocative campaign featuring the Malgosia Bela. The beauty of these images lies in the artistic way in which the clothing is presented: with her body painted in white and the stark backdrop, Malgosia looks more like a performance artist than a model. As the Wang label enters into its next stage of development this campaign provides a dynamic and eye-catching brand message.


KENZO

Jean Paul Goude – Photographer | Anthony Turner – Hair Stylist | Aaron de Mey – Makeup Artist | Humberto Leon & Carol Lim – Creative Directors | Jester White & Ming Xi – Models

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Kenzo’s F/W ads by Jean Paul Goude were arresting and upbeat – they even made our best of 2012 list and for S/S the saga continues with Ming Xi and Jester White picking up where things left off. We didn’t think it would be possible, but these ads are even more colorful and kooky than the first set.


AKRIS

Karim Sadli – Photographer | Anthony Turner – Hair Stylist | Hannah Murray – Makeup Artist | Alana Zimmer – Model

Karim Sadli shoots Akris’ understated S/S ads featuring Alana Zimmer. Akris has always been about luxury that whispers instead of shouts and Saldi does an excellent job of communicating that message visually. Albert Kriemler’s elegantly minimal designs look especially beautiful set against the lush green backdrop and Alana is as lovely as ever.


ROBERTO CAVALLI

Roberto Cavalli – Designer | Mario Testino  – Photographer | Marie Chaix – Fashion Editor/Stylist | Sam McKnight – Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury – Makeup Artist | Jack Flanagan – Set Designer | Lorraine Griffin – Manicurist

Roberto Cavalli’s clothes are not for wallflowers, so it makes sense that the S/S campaign features three of the boldest and mostt compelling models around. Isabeli Fontana, Malgosia Bela and Sui He star in Mario Testino‘s kinetic images filled with bold prints, saturated colors and the brand’s signature in your face opulence.

Ear to Ear

January 11th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

There is no smiling in high fashion. Seriously.

There was a point in the pre-recession days (if you can remember those) when spotting a smile on a cover or in a campaign was was something akin to seeing Anna Dello Russo in khakis and Keds – it simply wasn’t done. Don’t believe us? Take a look at Fashion Iconography for a year by year cover rundown of blank stares and suggestive pouting.

We’re not sure if it is the lighter than air feeling of spring’s floucy separates, the inescapable influence of smize-queen Tyra Banks, or a tie in deal with Crest, but this season is all about laughing, grinning and being incessantly cheerful.

Mirte Maas and Mathias Bergh‘s Tom Ford ads are beyond upbeat and bordering on manic – who would guess that Mr. Ford himself was behind the camera? Beneath all that carefully crafted sexiness, we knew he had a sense of humor.

Julia Stegner, Miranda Kerr and a couple of baby goats for Bally. Cavity. Inducing. sweetness.

Only a hint of a grin for Bottega Veneta, but seeing Liya Kebede always makes us smile. Plus, lets be real who wouldn’t be grinning if they found themselves in the possession of that tote.

Arizona Muse for Isabel Marant, stuck in the backseat of a convertible (cars are another of the season’s big fashion ad motifs, see Prada’s gas station-fest) shielding her face from the sun and STILL smiling.

Hearing the words Milla Jovovich by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, automatically makes you think of a really arty black and white shoot, possibly with some cool face painting or an M/M Paris design scrawled along the side. Luckily I&V are saving that kind of stuff for Justin Bieber this month and instead have graced us with this shot of an ecstatic Milla.

Cut & Paste

January 26th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Jac Jagaciak joins the one and only Tom Ford for a special feature in Interview by Craig McDean. Shot at Los Angeles’ trendy Cicada Restaurant and featuring Ford’s acclaimed S/S collection, the images round out Interview’s beautiful Ford cover story. The cut out effect makes for an interesting collage of pictures, but even with the unique layout the clothes remain the focus.

Makeover Monster

November 29th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Another day, another tantalizing glimpse at Tom Ford‘s issue of Vogue Paris. This time around the editorial is shot by Mr. Ford himself and styled by none other than Carine Roitfeld. Considering the duo’s lengthy history of creating controversy inducing imagery together at Gucci, it is only natural that this story pushes a few buttons. Ford’s surgery-centric tale of a woman’s body modifications, looks eeriely similar to the classic Makeover Madness special from Vogue Italia, but with Crystal Renn in the starring role and an extra layer of sex added into the mix, it is just different enough to keep us interested.
