Versace, Versace

May 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Summer has barely started, but fall campaigns are already beginning to roll in. First up, the legendary house of Versace which unleashes an eyecatching set of ads for men and women helmed by none other than Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner). The in your face duo put forth a daring set of images – for womenswear it’s veteran model Stella Tennant starring in at a Versace clad Anna Ewers with a look of longing – is it the handbag she’s after or the decadently dressed Anna? One may never know, but the photos with their saturated colors and Guy Bourdin leanings pack a visual punch and Joe McKenna (Art Partner)’s styling is a wonder to behold. Menswear is all about the beefcake with Filip Hrivnak and Daan van der Deen taking us back to the 90s in bold prints, leather chaps and David Bradshaw‘s luxe mix of sexy Versace standards.

March 5th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For the covers of its annual Music Issue, V Magazine spotlights rising pop stars Lorde and the Haim sisters, but inside, we’ve got our eyes on talent of another kind. Embracing the original Supreme, Diana Ross, for 2014, photographer Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) nominates fresh face Ysaunny Brito to revamp the days of disco. Styled by Patti Wilson, Ysaunny takes a turn as the soulful legend in show-stopping looks from CarvenVersace, and Saint Laurent. With this fabulous series bursting glamour and color, Ysaunny certainly won’t be singing the blues this spring.

Donatella’s Stars

November 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Lady Gaga‘s surprisingly understated ad for Versace accessories is one of the most talked about campaigns of the moment, but the Versace love affair with fame goes way back. Every few seasons Donatella enlists a star from the world of film, tv or music to pout and preen in the brand’s memorable campaigns and over the years they’ve racked up an impressive array of luminaries. Versace will always be synonymous with the supermodel era but they’re equally known for their connection to the world of celebrity. Star power has always been one of the driving forces behind Versace’s appeal on and off the red carpet – take a look back at some of the famous faces to front ads for the legendary label.

Campaign Confidential

January 3rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Luxury powerhouses have unleashed their S/S campaigns with great fanfare, but which brand’s spring outlook are you liking best? Take a look at some of the best brand new campaigns on the scene and let us know your faves in the comments.


MULBERRY

Emma Hill (Designer) | Tim Walker (Photographer) | Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme at House and Holme (Art Direction) | Shona Heath (Set Design) | Jane How (Stylist) | Sam McKnight (Hair) | Val Garland (Makeup) | Meghan Collison (Model)

Tim Walker‘s dreamy imagery has come to define the Mulberry campaign look for a few seasons now and the brand’s latest starring Meghan Collison, takes the party underwater setting Meghan against a undersea backdrop of soft pastels and coral that perfectly coordinates with the line’s feminine S/S collection.


VERSACE


Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
 (Photographer) | David Bradshaw (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Melanie Ward (Fashion Editor/Stylist) |Giovanni Bianco (Art Director) |

Giovanni Bianco (Art Director) | Daria WerbowyEdward WildingJoan SmallsKacey CarrigKate Moss &Veit Couturier  (Models)

More is always more in the world of Versace and for S/S they pull out all the stops with a stylized campaign filled with supermodels, bold color and enough drama to fill an entire operetta. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott create a blue tinted world of beauty, sensuality and references to mythology.


GIORGIO ARMANI

Giorgio Armani (Designer)| Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographers) Models: Saskia de Brauw & Roch Barbot

Sophistication is key in the world of Armani and Saskia de Brauw serves as the perfect incarnation of the Armani woman in the brand new S/S ads. Poised, refined and of course clad in crisp suiting straight of the runway, de Brauw shines in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott‘s seamless images.


GIVENCHY

Riccardo Tisci (Designer) | Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographer) |Carine Roitfeld (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Mathias Augustyniak & Michael Amzalag (Art Director) Models: Francisco PeraltaKate MossMariacarla Boscono

Givenchy usually goes for high concept campaign shots, but this season the line tones it down with striking black and white portraits. The new campaign even features the ultimate scene stealer, Mariacarla Boscono‘s daughter, Marialucas.


PRADA


Miuccia Prada
 (Designer) | Steven Meisel (Photographer) | Olivier Rizzo (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Guido Palau (Hair Stylist) | Pat McGrath (Makeup Artist) | Ashley Brokaw (Casting Director) Models: Eva HerzigovaIrene HiemstraIrina KravchenkoKirsten OwenMaartje VerhoefSasha PivovarovaSaskia de BrauwSung Hee KimVanessa Axente

Miuccia’s eclectic collection finds its way onto the backs of a multi-generational cast featuring a series of notable models from the past 20 years. The striking Steven Meisel helmed campaign celebrates the uniqueness of the Spring collection and its undeniable visual impact; when you have great clothes and great models what more do you need.

Man, Oh Man!

January 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Two menswear looks we loved and a couple we didn’t. Sound off in the comments and tell us what you’ve been into so far this season. Be sure to click on the photos to see the collections in full on NowFashion!

LOVE ITPRADA
With all the hoopla over actors filling out the finale of Prada‘s F/W collection, you may have overlooked the beautifully conceived collection. Miuccia’s masterful meditation on male power featured an array of memorable looks that treated the subject matter with humor. Football helmet prints on oh so serious top coats, denim sneaking into formal wear and a whole lot of  thoughtful nods to diplomats, dictators and military men of influence. Adrien Brody especially looked dapper in his red shades and fur – potential Oscar outfit? Time will tell.

HMMMM…VERSACE 
Versace refers to this particular pattern as floro-flague and we’re not sure if we love the audacity of it, or hate the very idea of such a thing. It is somewhat memorable though – even with that horrific lime green fur collar. We do admire River Viiperi‘s ability to look good in even the most outlandish pieces –  that has to count for something.

KIND OF WANT… – CALVIN KLEIN

Italo Zucchelli’s Calvin Klein collection was intended as a tribute to New York’s unique blend of modernism and tradition. Definitely a fitting idea and a sweatshirt with croc accents certainly encapsulates the concept accurately, but we’re still having a hard time imagining where exactly this sort of piece fits outside of the editorial pages. Where will you be wearing your exorbitantly priced croc hoodie? Other than the obvious answers of Le Bain, Equinox and in every Pitti Immagine Uomo street style picture taken next year.

OIC - Etro

If you lost the sweater and dyed this violet you would have the ultimate performance wardrobe for Prince. Alas, these are not the purple one’s touring ensembles and as such we can find no logical excuse for this combination of elements. Orange velvet, a cowboy hat, one of Bill Cosby’s old sweaters – the mix is confusing and we usually like Etro’s unique melange of influences.

Spring Awakening

January 5th, 2012 |Posted by models.com

Spring/Summer 2012 has proved to be a great run for a string of first timers for their respective houses; many of them also choosing new faces to front their campaigns for the season. How do you think these guys have fared?

Greg Nawrat for Gucci by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott | Alex Cunha for Bottega Veneta by Jack Pierson

While usually having a bevy of models in their ads, Gucci went solo this season with new and fresh faced Greg Nawrat. It also seems that Bottega Veneta had the same idea and tapped spring show opener Alex Cunha to star in their campaign, shot by contemporary artist Jack Pierson.

Simon Nessman for Giorgio Armani by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott | Ryan Barrett for Versace by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

Running champs of the campaign season again, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott explored two different sides with Giorgio Armani and Versace. Simon Nessman solidifies his place on our list in a sleek and simple setting while relatively unknown British face Ryan Barrett snags an only guy campaign beside the illustrious Gisele.

Baptiste Radufe for Yves Saint Laurent by David Sims | Florian Van Bael for Emporio Armani by Alasdair McLellan

Coincidence that a pair of black and white ads feature new Belgians? One of our Top Newcomers this past season, Baptiste Radufe shows us there’s a new Baptiste in town starring in Yves Saint Laurent‘s sleek spring looks. Another one of our Top Newcomers, Florian Van Bael is set on the streets of Hong Kong shot by Alasdair McLellan for Emporio Armani‘s latest campaign.

Noah Mills for Salvatore Ferragamo by Mikael Jansson | Simone Nobili & Chris Moore for Givenchy by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott

Classic good looks seem to be the key to success, and Noah Mills is proof that it’s true. Shot on location in Jamaica by Mikael Jansson, Noah continues the tradition of the luxurious lifestyle of the brand. On the opposite side of Salvatore Ferragamo, new faces Simone Nobili and Chris Moore hold their own in Givenchy‘s dark and moody spring ads by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
