Spring Summer 2014 Campaigns Part 3

Here is part 3 of my spring 2014 ad campaign reviews. Read part 1 and part 2.

I love…

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

Valentino shot by Craig McDean. Beautiful collection, beautiful campaign.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, roberto cavalli

Roberto Cavalli with Iseline Steiro shot by David Sims. It’s retro, it’s simple, and it has leopard print – Roberto Cavalli at its best.

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

Mulberry with Cara Delevingne shot by Tim Walker. You can’t go wrong with a white mini-horse.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, michael kors, mario testino

Michael Kors with Karmen Pedaru shot by Mario Testino. I can’t get enough of these glamourous photos.

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

Lanvin by Steven Meisel. A dinner party for white-haired girls only.

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

Givenchy with Erykah Badu and Eboni Riley shot by Mert and Marcus. Nice choice of models and the clothes look beautiful. That’s how ad campaigns should be!

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, dolce gabbana

Dolce Gabbana shot by Catherine McNeil. This could be any season from Dolce & Gabbana but that’s ok because it is what they are about.

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

Calvin Klein with Vanessa Axente shot by Mert and Marcus. Clean and simple, just like the brand.

I loathe…

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, kate moss, mario testino

Stuart Weitzman with Kate Moss shot by Mario Testino. This is the kind of ad you would just flip by in a magazine and not even notice it for one millisecond (by the way, that’s not a good thing.)

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, marc jacobs, miley cyrus

Marc Jacobs with Miley Cyrus shot by David Sims. Juergen Teller has shot Marc Jacobs’ campaigns for a billion years and he refused to shot Miley so Jacobs SOLD OUT and worked with David Sims instead. For Miley?!?!? This is SO wrong.

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

Jason Wu with Karen Elson shot by Inez and Vinoodh. Jason Wu isn’t famous enough to be in his own campaigns.

fashion photography, advertising campaigns, fashion magazines, styling, fashion shoots,  magazine ads, donna karan

Donna Karan with Adriana Lima shot by Russell James. The African jungle woman just isn’t working here, or anytime for Donna Karan.

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

Carven with Marte Mei shot by Viviane Sassen. This looks like a photo I took with my iPhone – and we forgot to brush the model’s hair first.

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

Balmain with Rihanna shot by Inez and Vinoodh. This sucks big time.

    “Stuart Weitzman with Kate Moss shit by Mario Testino.” Intentional typo? ;)

  • @Elaryen

    It’s not a good thing to flip by in 2 seconds, it’s not good if you don’t understand what they are actually trying to sell (well I know what Weitzmann sells of course but …).

    Jason Wu looks so young here that the whole campaign has something of a cougar feeling.

    Carven is just … You took the pic with your phone and then used an app to add some fancy embellishments, am I right?

    I want to be part of whatever takes place in Kors ad and I have been very pro towards recent D&G campaigns, just love the feeling they evoke.

    OOPS! Not intentional. But I am sure there was meaning behind that… I am correcting now. Thanks :-)

  • alexandrasuhnerisenberg

    Nice point about the Wu campaign. Older model, young designer boy = weird.

  • jaspy

    wow juergen refused to shoot miley? haha that is so strange and hard to believe that because of miley he didn’t shoot marc jacob’s campaign this season. at this point i feel like marc jacobs needs all the credibility he can get and losing juergen does not help.. unless he’s simply totally rebranding since leaving LV to focus on his own brand, but still.
