Ad campaigns make me go crazy because not only do they provide amazing imagery for us fashionloco's but the way that they capture the essence of said collection at hand is just mindblowing to me. To say "hey, this is what we stand for/ what inspired us/ and the woman/man we encompass", although a bit patriarchal, is a beautiful thing to me. Fashionable direction.- that's what I like.
I've been covering the ad campaign trail for the s/s 2011 season in a little post (← click, click, click!) and although they all give me all types of visual awesomeness, there are 2 that drench me in a haze of creative imagery ecstasy. They are as follows:
I'm definitely a bit bipolar by choosing these two; Valentino is beautifully shot with highlights of class and ethereal elegance, while Lanvin's is all kinds of cat-fight crazy and one evil text message away from a Gossip Girl blast. But both just take me "there"-- I'm not exactly sure where "there" is (perhaps 2 hours away north of Narnia?) but "there" I am. Splendid.
Head on over to my Campaign Frenzy post and let me know which one(s) get's your juices flowing! :)
