AW14 Campaign: Jeremy Scott Surprises With His First Moschino Ad

AW14-Moschino-advert

Who could forget Jeremy Scott’s explosive, fun, junk food-inspired autumn/winter 2014 collection for Moschino, I think the French fries iPhone cover was Instagrammed by all the top bloggers within days of the catwalk show, well it seems that for his first ad campaign he has gone for a more iconic, timeless approach and I adore it. 

Starring Linda Evangelista and shot by Steven Meisel, the campaign is less trashy-chic and more classy than I was expecting after seeing the McDonald’s Moschino Happy Meal handbags and SpongeBob Square Pants knits hit the Milan catwalk – the gaudy colours have been replaced for a classic black and white portrait that actually makes that McDonalds bag look classy. 

I love everything about this campaign – from the black and white to the pose, now that is a supermodel working it, to the big blow dry, gorgeous tailored coat and super cute earrings. The catwalk might have been to grab attention, steal a few headlines during fashion week, but this campaign is all about selling the collection. 

If nothing else you have got to admit, McDonalds has never looked so good!

Updated: 

More of the Moschino’s autumn/winter 2014 campaign has been released and it just keeps getting better. I just adore the styling by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, seriously exquiste and truly captures a different side of the collection, especially with it shot in black and white. I also love the use of the all-star crew – for Jeremy Scott’s first campaign it is great that he could get Linda Evangelista, Stella Tennant, Carolyn Murphy, Saskia Debraw, Karen Elson and Rachel Zimmerman all to take part as they look incredible.

What do you think of Moschino’s AW14 campaign?

AW11 Campaign: Lanvin Asks Can Models Dance? Hell Yeah!!

If I said to you that a French fashion house went for a Pitbull song as the track to their latest campaign, be honest you would think I had lost the plot, well that is what Lanvin has done for autumn/winter 2011.

The campaign shot by Steven Meisel features super models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman busting some shapes to Pitbull’s ‘I Know You Want Me’, and it is a super fun and stylish video. It is so good it even makes me question whether a print campaign was even needed.

I am so glad that this campaign turned out as well as it sounds on paper, admittedly Raquel doesn’t look as comfortable as Karen *she is a goddess after all*, and the men don’t exactly cut it for me, but you have to watch all the way to end to check out Alber Elbaz – he completely steals the show with his dance moves.

Seriously, awkward really is sexy.

Does anyone else want to plug in the Xbox Kinect and bust a few moves? I am think next gathering at mine, get glammed up and film our own Lanvin-inspired dance video – who is up for it?

Also who fancies buying me a Lanvin cape?

Video Loving: Tom Ford Womenswear Return

Back in September the fashion world was a buzz with Tom Ford returning to womenswear in New York, well finally the show has been released and it is an amazing masterpiece of drama and fashion rolled into one.

I love that Tom Ford stands by the sidelines throughout presenting each piece, taking in the intimate setting to debut his first womenswear collection in six years. For me Beyonce and Julianne Moore stole the runway from the models – both looking fabulous and confident, and definitely fore-filled Tom Ford’s concept of real women.

I have obviously seen the images of the collection online, but seeing the drama unfold, how few people were actually at the show, and the amount of fun everyone in the audience and models were having, also seeing Terry Richardson shooting it – amazing energy for such a gorgeous collection.

Also wondering about the music? Apparently it is Karen Elson singing a song entitled, Pretty Babies. Simply stunning!!

I have been obsessed with this Burberry shearling leather aviator jacket since it strutted down the runway in February and it looks amazing on the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar – oh and the flame-haired beauty that is Karen Elson also looks great!!

But check out that subscriber cover – I spy a Miu Miu metal floral appliqué – magazine Editor’s really are loving that collection.

The October issue is on sale September 7.
