My Top Five SS15 Campaigns

My Top Five SS15 Campaigns

Normally for me it is the autumn/winter campaigns that really brings the fashion alive, maybe I say that because for me the winter collections are what I love to see on the catwalk, but these five fashion houses are really making me love spring/summer with their incredible fashion ads.

There is a stripped back feel to all the campaigns this season, I don’t mean that there isn’t as much money pouring into them or that they are less creative, just that the clothes are doing the talking rather than a celebrity face, well except Julia Roberts, who even appears in complete contrast to her perfume ambassadors days in a make-up free shot for the Givenchy campaign. There is a hint of darkness in some, especially Valentino and Prada, as well as oozing coolness from the likes of Chloé and Coach.

AW14 Campaign: Jeremy Scott Surprises With His First Moschino Ad


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!



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.

Cover Loving: Vogue Italia Goes Retro For September


Vogue Italia revealed its September issue earlier this week and I am just loving the retro vibe of the cover photographed by Steven Meisel.

Starring model Doutzen Kroes, who is having a great month as she is also on the cover of Vogue Spain, Vogue China and Vogue Netherlands, the beauty has a touch of Shrimpton-meets-Bardot about her wearing a Prada gingham check dress and baker boy cap.

I am not sure what I love more – the 60s/70s styling, the beautiful facial close-up, I am in love with her eye make-up, or the retro feel to the cover with the muted colours and light flares. I can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

Video Loving: Only Prada Can Make Chess Stylish

Who knew chess could be so stylish? Well, obviously Miuccia Prada did as her latest video showing off her incredible “virtual princess” themed autumn/winter 2012 collection stars supermodels Magdalena Frackowiak and Anne Vyalitsyna playing a fantasy game of chess.

Shot by Steven Meisel the abstract video is filled with the sharp geometric patterns of the autumn/winter show and as described by the fashion house “a virtual labyrinth of fantasy and reality” – so basically this is what a Prada videogame would look like!!!

What’s very cool about that this fantasy game of chess is that every time Magdalena or Anne move a piece, they force models Vanessa Exente, Madison Headrick, Elza Luijendijk and Iselin Steiro to move in tandem, so this is chess with a fashion face-off  – and really does show that models are just pawns **sorry couldn’t resist it**.

I love the styling of the video, everything from the 1970s vibe of the geometric printed trouser suits to the razor sharp sleek straight locks and the dramatic dark eye make-up.

I loved last seasons 1950s retro campaign, it was fun and quirky, but there is something magical about this creepy game of chess. Check it out and let me know what you think:
