Spring Summer 2014 Campaigns Part 1

Since we are starting the Fall 2014 shows next week, I figured we had better look at these Spring 2014 campaigns before we move on to the next season! Here is part 1 of my loves and loathes, read part 2 and part 3.

I love…

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, peter lindbergh

Alberta Ferretti with Mariacarla Boscono shot by Peter Lindbergh. It’s sometimes a bit boring that Ferretti is always about chiffon dresses, but this represents her so well, and it is a beautiful photo.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, gisele, louis vuitton

Louis Vuitton with Gisele shot by Steven Meisel. It’s all about the bag but that’s ok because that’s what Louis Vuitton is about, and I think Gisele looks great.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, saint laurent

Saint Laurent with Natalie Westling and Nastya Sten by Hedi Slimane. While I loathe everything about this brand right now, I can’t deny this looks really cool.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, prabal gurung, daniel jackson

Prabal Gurung with Liya Kebede by Daniel Jackson. What a beautiful, powerful image, although I don’t see the point of the burning rose.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, missoni

Missoni with Christy Turlington shot by Viviane Sassen. When I am 45 I want to look like this.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, maxmara

Maxmara shot by Mario Sorrenti. This is fresh, young, and not only about coats – exactly what Maxmara needs.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, hermes

Hermes with Diana Moldova and Yumi Lambert shot by Hans Silvester. Let’s take a pretty young girl and hide her behind a tree with a gorgeous handbag. Works for me.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads,  mert marcus, dsquared2

DSquared2 with Luma Grother shot by Mert and Marcus. I love that this isn’t preppy.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, liu wen, karlie kloss, coach

Coach with Karlie Kloss and Liu Wen shot by Craig McDean. This makes Coach looks effortless and cool (which is pretty much the opposite of what they are.)

I loathe…

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, prada, steven meisel

Prada by Steven Meisel. I know everyone else thinks this is the best thing ever, but I think it is lame.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, nicole kidman, jimmy choo

Jimmy Choo with Nicole Kidman shot by Solve Sundsbo. Where do I start? That it is Nicole Kidman photoshopped to oblivion? That she is wearing a Miley Cyrus outfit with a blazer? Or that she is lying down but angled to look like she is standing up? This sucks in every way possible.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, salvatore ferragamo, daria werbowy

Salvatore Ferragamo with Daria Werbowy shot by Mert and Marcus. This looks contrived and the product doesn’t even look that good.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, chanel, karl lagerfeld

Chanel with Lindsey Wixson shot by Karl Lagerfeld. I don’t think a modern day Cyndi Lauper belongs in a Chanel campaign, this is trying too hard.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, belstaff, david beckham

Belstaff with David Beckham and Andreea Diaconu shot by Peter Lindbergh. He is pretty much the face of H&M underwear – why can’t Belstaff find someone else to represent them?

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, kate moss, alexander mcqueen

Alexander McQueen with Kate Moss shot by Steven Klein. Gladiator Kate Moss with Kate Moss mini-me is not doing it for me.

    I thought the burning rose gave the color to the dress …

    I did not even recognize Nicole Kidman in that ad. What’s the point of paying a celebrity if you don’t recognize the celebrity?

    I have seen a different version of the Chanel campaign here in Marie Claire, she is wearing first a black spaghetti strap dress and then a black coat/dress over a pair of white shorts with a red handbag. In the latter you don’t see the crazy hairdo, and it’s actually pretty.

    A. McQueen ad is just fug.

    Love those MaxMara pants. Wonder if they have them in other colors.

    Yes, I didn’t recognize Kidman either, but she is so “plastic” now she has lost her identity. Sad.

  • Cheryl W.

    I think Saint Laurent’s my favourite out of this lot.
