SS13 Campaign: Versace Does Post Apocalyptic Glamour

Versace-SS13-ad-1So according to the Mayans the world was suppose to end today, I forgot all about it, but Versace obviously decided to do their own version of what an apocalypse would look like, and of course it would be glamorous and filled with half-naked gladiators.

For the spring/summer 2013 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus, Versace has brought together three iconic models Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Joan Smalls and each one looks absolutely hot – especially Kate who is being flanked by three very hunky gladiators, Edward Wilding, Kacey Carring and Veit Couturier.

Of the campaign, Donatella Versace said:

“To have three glamorous and iconic women like Kate, Daria and Joan in one campaign is not an easy feat. Mert and Marcus really outdid themselves, each image is composed like a work of art.”

This is one steamy campaign that I am sure for some will be a little too fake, or photoshopped, but come what do you expect from Versace – these images are so on brand for me and I love them – they are OTT, striking, and so, so sexy.

What do you think of Versace’s spring/summer 2013 campaign?

SS12 Campaign: Chanel Goes Sporty And Simple

I knew as soon as posted that Mulberry was the best spring/summer 2012 campaign, I would find something else that I would fall in love with, and of course it had to be Chanel. Whereas most of the fashion houses for spring have gone for colourful and vibrant, I love that Chanel’s ready-to-wear campaign, lensed by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld, is simply shot in black and white and has a cinematic feel to it.

The other thing I love is the sporty vibe of this campaign, perfectly fitting with it being an Olympic year, and Saska de Brauw and Joan Smalls look incredible against the backdrop of gymnastic apparatus in the South of France. I love the parallel bars and the slicked back hair – everything about this campaign is perfection without being over the top. I love it!!!

SS11 Campaign: Gucci Goes Glam For Spring

For spring it seems that Gucci’s Creative Director, Frida Gianni has played with bold colours and sleek shapes to produce a gorgeous-yet-glam ad campaign. Once again shot by Gucci regulars Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot, the campaign features models Karmen Pedaru, Joan Smalls, Hailey Clauson. Nikola Jovanovic and Gen Huismans.

As SS11 campaigns go, this one is the one that has excited me the most, I think it is because it is bright and bold, but these images are great but trust me they look even better in print. Check them out in February issues.

My favourite image has to be the one above, gorgeous and striking, the Amber Double Raso dress with its feather, PVC, and metal elements embroidered detailing.
