SS12 Campaign: Diesel Torches Barbie Dollshouse

SS12Diesel13 SS12 Campaign: Diesel Torches Barbie Dollshouse %tag

I went to the Diesel autumn/winter 2012 press day yesterday, all about coloured jeans, gorgeous knits and huge bags *I will put piccies on  my Facebook soon*, but while there I spotted the current spring/summer 2012 campaign by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, ‘Portraits for Successful Living’, and I was shocked to see them burning Barbie!!!

OK, I am being a little dramatic but what a weird campaign, leggy models torching dollshouses, a denim clad model canoodling a robot, another one trampling on a potted plant, and there is even one playing peek-a-boo in a safe. I get that Diesel is a little bit out there with their advertising but has anyone else spotted these adverts and thought WTF is going on???

The one I do love however has to be the two leggy models doing tug-of-war, those bleached blue flares are HOT!!!

I’ve put the rest of the campaign images on my Facebook page – let me know what you think of Diesel’s latest campaign?

    I don’t get it either. It seems totally incohesive. Is that a word? And very anti women… Or anti Barbie at least. Dismissed!
