AD CAMPAIGN: VALENTINO AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY DEBORAH TURBERVILLE

Valentino take us to the “Jewel of Sicilian Baroque architecture”, the extremley opulent Palazzao Valguarner-Gargi in Palermo, Sicily for their Deborah Tuberville lensed Autumer/Winter campaign starring models Frida Gustavsson, Jac Jagaciak and Caroline Brasch Nielsen. And while the set may be fabulous in all its gilded glory, I can’t help but feel that the campaign has a whole fall flat due to the detached models.

Check it out.

AD CAMPAIGN: TRUSSARDI 1911 AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY ALBERT WATSON

Grammy award winning photographer, (yes you read right), Albert Watson captures a beautiful set of portrait style shots of models Marique Schimmel & Andre Van Noord for the Trussardi 1911 autumn/winter 2012 campaign.

The set of images see both Marique and Andre don the earthy hues in front of a weathered teal backdrop, and the contrast is striking, especially with Marique’s rather ethereal make, hair and attitude coupled with the masculine styling of the collection. Check it out.

AD CAMPAIGN: LOUIS VUTTION MENSWEAR AUTUMN/WINTER 2012 BY ALASDAIR MCLELLAN

With the handsome Werner Schreyer in tow for another season, Louis Vuitton have delivered yet another exceptional campaign that really allows the structure and textures of the beautiful collection to really be seen, amongst the absolutely breathtaking setting of a blue sky, glaciers, sea and snow.

The “Voyage” theme, that forms the foundations of their campaigns, goes further with the 1950s styling, (courtesy of Alister Mackie), which works perfectly here.

Check it out another image from the Alastair Mclellan shoot here.

AD CAMPAIGN: DIOR HOMME AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 “SHADOW” BY WILLY VANDERPERRE

I’m still trying to figure out, (frustratingly), why there are two Dior Homme advertising campaigns. The first one shot by Karl Lagerfeld I posted here

The latest campaign, lensed by Willy Vanderperre and aptly named “Shadow”, stars models Janis Ancens and Victor Nylande wandering through the eerily deserted Financial District in New York at night, while dressed in the military influenced autumn/winter collection.

Check out the cinematic images and the accompanying film here.

AD CAMPAIGN: LANVIN AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY STEVEN MEISEL

If there’s one brand you can consistently rely on for great concepts and execution while retaining their core, it’s Lanvin.

Photographed by Steven Meisel, the theatrical new campaign sees an diverse age range of “ordinary” people rather than well known models, all styled beautifully and yet conventionally while set amongst a bazaar of quirky accessories and furniture to match Alber Elbaz’s tongue and cheek mood.

Check out the campaign and video here.

AD CAMPAIGN: EMILIO PUCCI AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

You could probably tell this is a Mert & Marcus masterpiece from a mile away. The opulent setting, seductive poses, saturated colours and of course the otherwordly retouching has transformed model Amber Valletta into a creature of the night that you would beg to bite you!

Check out the rest of the images from the seductively dark campaign here.

AD CAMPAIGN: TOM FORD BEAUTY, AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

Mert & Marcus sure are going to have an extravagent Christmas this year with all the pay-cheques that have been rolling in!

The duo are responsible for shooting blue/green eyed beauty Snejana Onopka for the A/W 2012 Tom Ford beauty campaign and praise the lord, after the not so great collection campaign, it’s the Tom Ford I’ve been longing for. Of course no campaign would be complete without the handsome designer himself making an appearance somewhere, but the Ukrainian beauty has definitely made sure that all eyes are on her with those high cheekbones, crimson nails and seductively glossy red lips!

AD CAMPAIGN: BRIAN ATWOOD AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

Hot people, sex, nudity, come fuck me  sexy thigh high boots, a naked Chad White, and a devilish Candice Swanepoel in a photograph that looks like it came straight out of HBO’s vampire romping True Blood, or Mert & Marcus have secretly been spying on what I get up to on my Friday nights in the countryside, either way I’m sold!

See how easy I am when you get it right…

AD CAMPAIGN: RAG & BONE AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13, KATE MOSS BY CRAIG MCDEAN

When you take Kate Moss, and make her just look like the everyday Kate Moss, you’re onto a stone groove smash hit winner…and that’s exactly what David Neville and Marcus Wainwright had in mind when they hired Craig McDean to shoot the supermodel in Kentish Town, London, for the new Rag & Bone advertising campaign.
