Christian Louboutin spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

There's no doubt that fashion has become a whimsical art muse yet have you ever imagined shoes being the subject of a "baroque painting"?

Lanvin spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Norwegian model Iselin Steiro stars in the spring-summer 2009 ad campaign for Lanvin pictured by world renowned fashion photographer Steven Meisel. At a first glance this campaign brings nothing novel; just a beautiful girl that has a special relationship with the mirror/her reflection. But while dressed in Lanvin who wouldn't become a little bit narcissistic? At a second look these photos insinuate modern woman's worship for fashion. A couture dress can glamorize everything around be it a time-beaten décor.

Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Marc Jacobs calls on again photographer Juergen Teller to shoot the spring-summer 2009 ad campaign starring Brazilian topmodel Raquel Zimmermann. The images show a sun-soaked orchard with pomegranate trees and a tea-party dressed young lady wandering about, climbing on ladders to pick fruits.

The shiny fabrics, bold colors and clashing prints go together almost organically with the blue sky and warm meadow hues. All this could sound boringly nice if it wasn't Juergen Teller who brings his signature gritty, raw aesthetic with soft, muted color palette and realistic touches.
There's something funny and something unsettling too about these images; take the extra shadow, for example, or the sunset light, that chair and so on...

H&M spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

The loveliness personified, miss Coco Rocha stars in the spring/summer 2009 ad campaign/catalogue for the Sweden-based chain store H&M. It's quite impressive that the muse of sophisticated couture designers like Lagerfeld, Gaultier and Galliano can look so sweet and flirty, also.

Well I imagine it can't be that hard when you're running about in this lavish Mediterranean garden setting wearing pretty clothes in sun-bleached floral prints and light neutrals. H&M spring/summer 2009 campaign is romantic and warm sending out a care-free, charming vibe.

Future Fashion with Tilda Swinton

What says more avant-garde than the bi-annual cultural journal AnOther Magazine with fashion-forward Tilda Swinton on the cover?

Prada spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Spring/Summer 2009 ad campaign for luxury fashion label Prada was inspired by ancient stone bas-reliefs - depicting everyday life scenes and in this case dancing (?!). Well, anyway, the crinkled, glossy, textured fabrics and leathers Miuccia Prada planned for this season really go together with this idea.
Same goes for the sculptured hair-styling and the rigid, statuesque postures of the 7 topmodels that look so alike.

Dolce&Gabbana spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Dolce & Gabbana doesn't disappoint with its newest ad campaign shot by acclaimed fashion photographer Steven Klein. The label's spring/summer 2009 advertorial images display a "classic" D&G heavy styling and cinematographic composition. A group of young people are gathered in a lavish interior setting (a beautiful rococo décor with couches and lounge chairs draped in luxurious fabrics) and captured on film in intriguing poses.

Valentino spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

The prolific fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott also signed the spring 2009 campaign for Valentino. 90s beauty icon, American supermodel Stephanie Seymour is the image of the Italian high-fashion house, embodying "una vera donna", a woman from tip to toe: confident, graceful, sensual, elegant and most important, "sans-age".
A 40-year-old and mother of four, Stephanie Seymour fascinates with her great looks and manages to show high class wearing only a Valentino bag.

Giorgio Armani spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Photography team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott give a surreal edge to Giorgio Armani's well known classic elegance, for the label's spring/summer 2009 ad campaign.  The creative duo kept the black-and-white photography and added some glow and blur effects that bring a stylish, hallucinatory vibe. Is it a hidden message that this is a dreamy collection?

Giorgio Armani spring 2009 campaign
The ads feature one of my favorite top-models, Sasha Pivovarova, posing fiercely and almost alienesque alongside Irish hunk Jamie Dornan. Well alongside is miss-used here but only because I would have loved them to pose as a fierce Armani couple.
The photos capture some of the best pieces from Giorgio Armani spring 2009 collection including footwear, eyewear and handbags among which the much desired (by me, of course) Montenapoleone bag.

Dunhill spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Here's heartthrob Jude Law playing the lead role in Dunhill's ad campaign for spring/summer 2009 season. A long-time fan of this London-based luxury brand, as him stated, the British actor is the image of Dunhill menswear for the third consecutive season, depicting the modern&stylish British gentleman.
The ads shot by photographer Greg Williams ("responsible" for the Bond and Bourne movie posters) focus on a man who's confident, classy but also outdoorsy/speed enthusiast.

The kind that minds not crumpling his fine, expensive shirt in a sand car race. The collection mixes timeless silhouettes, exquisite fabrics and leathers (three-piece gabardine suits, safari blazers, suede biker jackets), understated colors and covetable accessories.

Miu Miu spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Miuccia Prada continues to seek out her advertising muses among today's big screen sirens. For spring/summer 2009 Mrs. Cruise, actress Katie Holmes is the new image for youthful brand Miu Miu.

Alberta Ferretti spring/summer 2009 ad campaign

Alberta Ferretti ad campaigns get better and better from one season to another. As much as I love her collections - she is one of my favorite designers - I love the ads more. They really highlight the main theme of the collection and carry it forward creating an entire distinct atmosphere.
Of course the entire credit goes to fashion photographer Steven Meisel who recreates, for Alberta Ferretti spring/summer 2009 campaign, the glamorous & decadent jazz age.

He is well known for his long-time collaboration with Donna Karan (or for the Marc Jacobs-as-Andy Warhol editorial in Numéro Magazine) as well as for his ability to achieve through his photographs an intense, intimate, cinematographic mood.
