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.
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.
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.
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.
Prabal Gurung with Liya Kebede by Daniel Jackson. What a beautiful, powerful image, although I don’t see the point of the burning rose.
Missoni with Christy Turlington shot by Viviane Sassen. When I am 45 I want to look like this.
Maxmara shot by Mario Sorrenti. This is fresh, young, and not only about coats – exactly what Maxmara needs.
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.
DSquared2 with Luma Grother shot by Mert and Marcus. I love that this isn’t preppy.
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.)
Prada by Steven Meisel. I know everyone else thinks this is the best thing ever, but I think it is lame.
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.
Salvatore Ferragamo with Daria Werbowy shot by Mert and Marcus. This looks contrived and the product doesn’t even look that good.
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.
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?
Alexander McQueen with Kate Moss shot by Steven Klein. Gladiator Kate Moss with Kate Moss mini-me is not doing it for me.
