Photographer Stephen Klein captures supermodels Kate Moss and Lara Stone for the new BALENCIAGA Fall/Winter campaign.
Chic and smoldering, the two women embody the brand as Stone leans over Moss, supporting her with one hand and gazing over her shoulder into the distance. Moss, meanwhile, shows off her famous cheekbones while maintaining an intense stare.
Alexander Wang, Balenciaga’s Creative Director, speaking to WWD, explained the mysterious and sensual mise en scène by a desire to express “women who are multifaceted and multidimensional: strong and sensual yet also austere and mysterious.”
Luxury brand LA PERLA has announced the new faces for its fall/winter 2015-2016 campaign. The international cast of this super sensual set of images includes Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly and Liu Wen from China.
The three beauties, all with distinct styles of their own, star in a campaign shot by famed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, under the artistic direction of Fabien Baron.
The sexy and sophisticated campaign will highlight a selection of lingerie of course, but also some ready-to-wear items, beachwear and designs from the La Perla Atelier collection, all modeled by this A-list trio.
For the second year in a row, the brand has called on Richard Biedul to bring to life the men’s collections for underwear and ready-to-wear.
The American ready-to-wear brand has unveiled the first two images from its Michael Kors Collection and MICHAEL Michael Kors fall 2015 campaigns. Three famous models have been signed for the occasion: Natasha Poly, Karmen Pedaru and Benjamin Eidem.
For these two new campaigns, Michael Kors has enlisted famous fashion photographer Mario Testino, and the in-demand shutterbug has opted to create a different world for each of the two lines.
The overall theme however remains opulence and everyday luxury, though restrained, as well as the attraction of opposites: masculine and feminine, glamour and simplicity. In fact, it’s the latter that gave the designer the idea of choosing two female models with vastly different styles.
Kors outlined that he was also inspired by the idea that luxurious styles shouldn’t only come out at nighttime but have a place in the everyday.
Natasha Poly is at the center of the Michael Kors campaign, shot by Mario Testino in the back seat of a Rolls Royce. Luxury and sophistication are at the forefront, as are the artisanal details of each piece on display.
For the MICHAEL Michael Kors campaign, the brand called on Karmen Pedaru and Benjamin Eidem, who together present a glamorous and sporty jetset couple.
The prints will appear in the biggest fashion stores of 39 countries in North America, Europe and Asia, starting in July.
Donatella Versace, vice president of the Versace Group, appears in her first solo photo for Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci Fall / Winter 2015 collection.
The photos followed an April 29 tease that implied Mert & Marcus would be photographing Versace in a Carine Roitfeld-styled campaign.
The monochromatic image retains the same style used in Julia Roberts shoot for Tisci’s Spring 2015 Givenchy campaign.
Donatella took to the official Versace Instagram to explain why she posed for a competing brand’s advertisements. “I believe in breaking rules. Riccardo Tisci is extremely talented and above all my dear friend,” Donatella writes. “We are family. I want to get rid of the old system, work together, support each other and make fashion a true global community.”
NFL player and fashion darling Victor Cruz (pictured above) also makes an appearance in a striped suit and matching tie, as does Chinese pop singer Chris Lee in a short fur jacket, displaying a handbag (below).
The Italian luxury brand has turned to three famous international actors, photographed by John Balsom in New York, to bring to life its Made to Measure luxury division.
The “Made to Measure” campaign highlights the link between the Girorgio Armani brand and show business, specifically the world of television.
It’s not surprising then to see three film actors who all got their big breaks on the small screen starring in this new advertising campaign.
American Matt Bomer saw his career take off after starring on USA’s “White Collar,” while Chinese actor Chen Kun rose to fame thanks to shows such as “Love Story in Shanghai” and “Pink Ladies.” For his part, Dan Stevens is best known as a star of “Downton Abbey.”
The black and white photos depict the trio of spokesmodels rehearsing on stage or conversing with one another, all the while of course dressed in the bespoke suits of the Italian luxury brand.
“Made to Measure is a unique service designed for the most demanding customers: a tailored suit that follows the customer’s own body-lines, customized to suit individual tastes,” says Giorgio Armani.
“I think of it as a tool for everyday use, suitable for all ages, all professions, in every part of the world. The three young actors represent so many modern men, natural and informal, with different cultures and backgrounds, with fast-paced, contemporary lifestyles that know what they want and make a smart choice in what they want to wear.”
The luxury brand has turned to a very young, entirely British cast for its fall/winter 2015 campaign, shot in the streets of London by famed Peruvian fashion photographer Mario Testino.
The F/W 2015 Burberry campaign, which was shot throughout the capital both around iconic monuments and down lesser known streets, presents no fewer than a dozen young singers, actors, comedians and models.
Directed by Christopher Bailey and shot by Mario Testino, the campaign alternates between wide-angled shots and close-ups, filled with vintage sequences that give it the feel of an amateur video.
Among the most recognizable faces are Ella Richards, Keith Richards’ supermodel granddaughter known for her rock n’ roll vibe; singer Tom Odell; actress Holliday Grainger; and Amber Anderson, the model who opened and closed Burberry’s fall/winter 2015 show.
Burberry is using these photos, and the video that accompanies them, to highlight several pieces that will define this season, including the Heritage trench and suede pieces with fringes.
Lady Gaga’s pooch Miss Asia Kinney has been chosen to launch luxury retail brand COACH‘s latest ad campaign.
The French bulldog features in a photo shot by Steven Meisel ‘modeling’ the Edie and Rucksack bags from the brand’s fall collection.
The proud mama took to Twitter to show the ad gushing, “I’m so proud to announce my puppy @MissAsiaKinney is the star & face of COACH this season!” The campaign will also feature Ariana Grande’s pup Toulouse.
Stella McCartney’s eponymous brand has released the first teaser trailer for its advertising campaign starring famous Russian model Natalia Vodianova.
Shot in the Scottish Highlands by Harley Weir, the campaign represents a return to nature with a touch of wildness, in line with the winter 2015 collection itself. Both elegant and luxurious, this new collection is in fact comprised of understated but chic designs in natural tones.
The first images from the video, which alternate between blistering fast and deliberately slow, show Natalia Vodianova becoming one with untamed nature and the surrounding countryside. The model is wearing sophisticated outfits, occasionally accessorized with pearl necklaces.
Luxury brand Longchamp has called on the British model and current it-girl for its fall 2015 campaign, shot in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami.
The face of Longchamp since the Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, following in the footsteps of Coco Rocha, Alexa Chung is today inexorably linked to the luxury brand’s campaigns.
After shooting in Marseille last year, the brunette this time headed to Wynwood in Miami, a neighborhood known for its colorful graffiti and avant-garde art galleries.
This is where she brings to life Longchamp’s latest iconic products for fall 2015, all of which are inspired by designs of the Memphis Group.
Once again shot by photographer Max Vadukul, the campaign revolves around two main visuals. The first sees Alexa Chung in a leather triangle mini-dress and a varsity-style black and white leather jacket, along with the Le Pliage Héritage Mini bag, a mini version of Longchamp’s iconic bag. The second image shows her in a print dress, accessorized with a rectangular version of the Le Pliage Héritage bag with a shoulder strap.
Longchamp’s fall 2015 advertising campaign will be unveiled come August, and the video will be released on September 8 on social media networks.
Katy Perry was named last week as the new face of MOSCHINO, and today she has revealed the gorgeous campaign pictures.
Styled by Moschino’s creative director Jeremy Scott, the campaign sees Perry modeling the collection’s bold new pieces, from graffiti-style bomber jackets to fringed knee-high boots.
Primary colors feature heavily, with a blue floor-length puffa jacket taking center stage in one photograph, offset by clashing yellow leggings.
Purple and orange are also paired together in one image, with texture added by details such as quilting.
A grungier image sees her sporting denim cut-offs, a baseball cap and a matching monochrome hip-hop style bag and jacket, while the house shows off its eveningwear in a picture featuring Perry leaning up against a brick wall in a strapless ball gown and elbow-length gloves. A final snap showcases the singer’s killer body as she poses completely nude, covering up using a black fur coat adorned with the house’s signature vibrant motifs. Accessories, where present, are kept bold and chunky throughout.
Shot in Brooklyn by fashion photography duo Inez and Vinoodh, the campaign perfectly nails the youthful cool vibe the brand enjoyed in the early 1990s and has been recently reviving.
Perry posted the snaps to her Instagram account, causing an immediate flurry of activity, with some of the photos receiving over 500,000 likes.
