CHANEL TEASES WITH “CHANEL NO.5” PREVIEWS STARRING BRAD PITT’S VOICE

Yep you read right! Chanel have released 3 video previews of their Chanel No.5 fragrance campaign starring Brad Pitt…and his voice.

Looking rather similar to the new Saint Laurent campaign by Hedi Slimane, the teasers, entitled “Why?” “Where?” and “Mystery?”, feature a single greyscale/black/white back shot of the actor and one of three questions, voiced rather seductively by the Brad himself, followed by the hashtag – #ChanelN5.

Check it out.

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

I tire of hearing the phrase “typically Gucci” when it comes to their advertising campaigns, it sounds so negative. How about accepting the fact it doesn’t need to be anything BUT Gucci!?

Anyway… True to form, Mert & Marcus have delivered an exquisite autumn/winter campaign – A gothic, dark and decadent series of photographs with a sublime set design and a hauntingly beautiful cast, alongside the equally captivating collection.

Check out the rest of the images here.

AD CAMPAIGN: DIANE VON FURSTENBERG AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY CAMILLA AKRANS

It’s debatable whether a messy maned Arizona Muse is the right person to front the Autumn/Winter Diane Von Furstenberg campaign, but there is something about her which reminds me of a younger Diane…and also from these images, the girl certainly knows how to plug an accessory!

Check out the campaign here.

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.

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: BOTTEGA VENETA AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY ERWIN OLAF

Ameyline Valade and Simon Van Meervenne gaze a bit too intensely at their bare monochrome walled apartment for the Erwin Olaf lensed Autumn/Winter 2012 Bottega Veneta campaign.

According to director creative director Thomas Maier. the campaign shot in Amsterdam back in march offers, “a point of view that is at once formal and psychological, so surface and meaning have a complex relationship”. Unfortunately this a very awkward and empty campaign, which I really want to like but just can’t primarily due to the tired out “colour against grey” composition and wooden execution.

Check it out.
