Lanvin fall-winter 2013 advertising campaign

Since Mr. Alber Elbaz took the helm of Parisian luxury label Lanvin, his light approach to brand presentation while keeping an elegant and timeless design aesthetic captured a wider and younger audience. Lanvin advertising campaigns are known now to be witty and humorous.

Prada Donna fall-winter 2013 campaign

The first images from Prada Donna fall-winter 2013 advertising campaign have arrived. As in previous season the campaign was shot by photographer Steven Meisel in a studio-portrait style with a tone of grit and raw sensuality added to match the runaway show's atmosphere. The setting is bare, severe with only vintage industrial chairs for the seductive protagonists to rest on. The autumnal dark shades of clothes and setting make a striking contrast with the harsh light, like a cold-season morning light.

Lady-like preciousness at Louis Vuitton fall 2010

Lovely images from Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2010/2011 advertising campaign showing three young ladies from the upper class getting ready for a glamorous sorority gala. Putting make up, brushing their bouncy pony tails are supermodels Christy Turlington, Karen Elson and Natalia Vodianova dressed in 50s style gowns, short blouses and full skirts. Bow adorned shoes and shiny handbags are lying around.

Prada is giving "fever" this fall

Great looking ad campaign from Prada for the upcoming season of fall 2010 starring model muse Angela Lindvall who plays the jazz singer role with heart (watch her singing Fever on The Mad Men inspired images send forth a refined seductive mood picturing a flirtatious night out at this exclusive "early 1960s" jazz club. Makes me want to go and find a printed A-line dress and a little swing jacket right now.

Jennifer Connelly is a Balenciaga woman

Jennifer Connelly is one of my favorite actresses, so charismatic with her refined beauty and intelligent aura while Steven Meisel is at the top of the fashion photographers list for the retro vibe of his imagery and the ability to tell an interesting story. While Balenciaga isn't quite my fashion fantasy, I appreciate its avant-garde creativity.

Prada campaign: fall/winter 2009/2010

The newest womenswear advertising campaign from Prada continues with the "cloned" beauties approach of the last season but at the same time goes for a lot more somber, mysterious aura.
Savage looks (crimped hair, smoky eyes) and dark waters hit the "back to the nature" feeling of the fall 2009 collection; I would say it sends out a mythological reference but those high-heel fishing waders/rain boots are an odd wake-up call to reality.

Shot by tireless Steven Meisel and starring fresh-faced models Anna de Rijk, Ymre Stiekema, Julia Hafstrom, Katlin Aas and Kendra Spears, Prada ad campaign is, as always, a slick presentation of the high-fashion clothes and accessories; this season in elegant hues of purple, red and brown.

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.

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.

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.

Cottage By The Sea

Vogue Italia featured, once again, the controversial work of fashion photographer Steven Meisel. German models Toni Garrn and Katrin Thormann star in this cinema inspired editorial entitled "Cottage by the Sea" that was published in the magazine's November 2008 issue.
Hints of Ingmar Bergman's 1966 art-film "Persona" can be seen in these ambiguous, surreal pictures taken at a beautiful but gloomy seaside location.

Reflections of Glamour

From mild, floating mist are emerging figures of perfect elegance, illusory and sophisticate. They come to life rising from the boundaries of unearthliness. That is the description of this vintage-inspired fashion editorial entitled Reflections of Glamour and featured in March 2008 issue of Vogue Italia. Photographer Steven Meisel captures ethereal looking Kamila Filipcikova and Agnete Hegelund as old-school glamour muses in a dream-like atmosphere with mirroring and dissolving effects.

Royal Couture

Here is another proof of Steven Meisel's photographic artistry in the form of a fashion editorial simply entitled “Couture”. With a styling that reminds me of 18th century European royal court paintings and especially of Queen Marie Antoinette, these Haute Couture designs are more than appropriate.
Featured in March 2005 issue of Vogue Italia the photo shoot gathers quite the bunch of top-models: Lydia Hearst, Malin Martensson, Kim Noorda, Ilona Kuodiene and Barbara Fialho.

Alberta Ferretti fall 2008 - winter 2009 ad campaign

When you think of Alberta Ferretti fall 2008 collection wonderful shades of violet come first to mind. And here they are, jewel tones of purple stand along emerald green, sapphire blue and gold in beautiful shots captured by the magical lens of photographer Steven Meisel for Alberta Ferretti fall/winter 2008/09 ad campaign.
Models Anna J, Magdalena, Siri & Viktoriya turn home after a long night of partying, and stretch their long legs in an old metro train. Love the contrast between the gorgeous clothes and the scenery.

Linda Evangelista is The Duchess

June 2008 issue of Vogue Italia features a special editorial called “The Duchess”, a character masterfully played by Canadian top model Linda Evangelista. No wonder she is considered a staple of the modeling industry. Along with colleagues Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, “top of the tops” Linda (as Karl Lagerfeld named her) ruled the fashion world in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
