More of my critiques of the Fall 2014 advertising campaigns. Read part one and part three.
Fendi featuring Nadja Bender shot by Karl Lagerfeld. Beautiful fur coat and big blue sky. Looks perfect.
Roberto Cavalli featuring Rita Ora shot by Francesco Carrozzini. This looks very glamorous and fabulous and it’s exactly what I expect from Cavalli.
Alexander Wang shot by Steven Klein. I was torn about this series. On one hand, its “been there, seen that” and on the other hand, it looks pretty good. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt.
Chloe featuring Sasha Pivarova and Andreea Diaconu. I know they always do the same thing, but when that same thing looks nice, it is ok.
Gucci shot by Mert and Marcus. This series featured a lot of different models and I love the pastel tones and the fact that it reminds me of the Tom Ford days.
Jimmy Choo featuring Catherine McNeill shot by Peter Lindbergh. This is the first time in a while I’ve seen a classy Jimmy Choo ad where they weren’t trying to stick the shoe in your face.
Marc by Marc Jacobs shot by David Sims. I’m not a fan of the actual photos but I liked that they sourced their models from Instagram. This is a brand that can get away with that kind of thing.
Moschino shot by Steven Meisel. Any ad featuring a big group of the old supermodels will get a thumbs up from me.
Valentino featuring Maartje Verhoef shot by David Bailey. A surprising choice for Valentino, but what’s not to love about David Bailey portraits?
Louis Vuitton featuring Jean Campbell shot by Juergen Teller. Um, I thought Marc Jacobs has left this brand? Yet they seem to be copying his ad campaigns?
Isabel Marant featuring Gisele. Bad pose, boring story. And the fashion looks uninteresting, too.
Bottega Veneta featruing Edie Campbell shot by David Sims. What happened to the beautiful, feminine, modern Bottega? This is too weird for me.
Alexander McQueen featuring Edie Campbell shot by Steven Klein. A dark, gloomy, uninspiring image.
Stella McCartney featuring Kate Moss shot by Mert and Marcus. What a terribly boring choice of model and why is she hugging that bag?
