Bottega Veneta Spring Summer 2019 Campaign

14.02.2019 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Earlier this month Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta released fresh new images for their Spring Summer 2019 campaign. Marking the first campaign for the brand under the new creative direction of Daniel Lee.

The designer was appointed in June, which allowed him means he missed the opportunity for the design process of the SS19 collection but was still able to edit it. However the creative direction of the campaign was solely led by his vision. The previous Céline designer teamed up with photographer Tyrone LeBon to present a selection of images influenced by minimalism and Italian coasts. Shot on the Neapolitan island of Ischia, the images are said to strip fashion and art down to their purest forms in a way which highlights and appreciates their similarities. A black trench coat, woven leather, knit, squared toed pumps. The campaign was a sort of visual documentary on the relationship between skin and material. This peek of the designer’s taste and appreciation for beauty is just enough to gather him an audience of eager new consumers leading up to his debut show later this month, especially during this time when old Céline consumers are scouting elsewhere.

The Return of The Fendi Baguette

24.01.2019 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

As we reported earlier this season from the SS19 runways, the Fendi Baguette has officially made its comeback.

The history of the baguette dates as far back to 1997 when Silvia Venturini Fendi first made the pitch for a smaller bag in a time where larger bags were leading the market. Of course the feedback the designer received from the idea was not initially positive but nevertheless she stuck with her guts and released the first baguette on the runways of 1997. Initially it was offered with small straps and the double F logos in brown. Since then it has made it’s way from the late 90’s throughout the Sex and The City Era of the 2000’s in additional styles. And it’s now safe to say it is officially back and has made its return with a fabulous intro.

This week the Italian fashion label has launched their latest campaign #BaguetteFriendsForever which includes a series of short films featuring the storylines of inseparable groups of friends around the world throughout one of their daily routines which is centered around the iconic baguette. The first episode, released only yesterday, is titled “The Baguette is Back” and is shot along the vibrant streets of Shangai, China. It stars movie actresses Tan Zhuo and Qiao Xin along with influencers Yu Wei and Yoyo who are filmed during their venture of a girls night out. The movie starts with the women shopping for baguettes and wardrobe at the Fendi store inside IAPM Mall in preparation for a night at the club. Each film carries it’s own style with a slight hint of humour to top it off with Groove Armanda’s My Friend as their soundtrack.  To be released later this month, are also two upcoming films featuring the baguettes’ ventures of Hong Kong and New York. Stayed tuned for more, and visit Fendi to shop.

Prada’s Old Hollywood Spring-Summer 2019 Campaign

23.01.2019 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

For their Spring Summer 2019 campaign, Italian fashion house Prada tackles the concept of duality in a video series shot and directed by Will Vanderperre featuring looks from both their women’s and men’s SS19 runway. The series was inspired by classic Hollywood movies and is approached as such.

It features the likes of top models Freja Beha Erichsen, Gigi Hadid, Maine Inga, Liu Wen and Anok Yai re-named after Prada’s supporting cast of accessories: respectively Sybille, Sidone, Margit, Odette and Belle inspired by iconic female cinematic icons. These women are also accompanied by three male characters played by models Daan Duez, Jonas Gloer and Tae Min. The campaign’s direction is a play on an iconic genre of cinematography: everything is familiar, but not too much, all holds a double meaning. Movie star?or model? Menswear? or womenswear? This series is created to guarantee you a few double-takes upon viewing. And like any other movie, it’s accompanied by posters directed by Benoit Debie which hints at the imagery and narrative of the films leaving one curious enough to explore the reflections and refractions of the collection.  The campaign boasts seven short films, which will be released throughout January and February on Prada.

The Relaunch of Prada’s Linea Rossa

07.09.2018 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Italian fashion house Prada once again went digging in the pile of their iconic archives for their latest digital campaign called Prada Linea Rossa.

The distinctive red striped logo was first born in 1997 when Patrizio Bertelli, husband of designer Miuccia Prada was convinced by a German yatch designer to create his own sailing team to compete in the America’s Cup competition, and from this came the Linea Rossa.

Inspired by the world of sport, the logo first began to appear on sunglasses and since then, was gradually seen in collections throughout the years. However, it’s new incarnation debuted at the FW18 show earlier this year.  The line offers a range of wardrobe from outwear, to footwear and specially conceived pieces geared to the demands of specific actives including skiing and snowboarding. Prada underscores the origins of the logo’s sportswear foundations with a touch of innovation in colour and form. Garments are clean, precise, entirely streamlined in form and also made with strategic material including nanotech fabrics, recycled polyester and water-repellent microfibre. The garments are all assembled by advanced methods of heat and internal heat-sealing completely devoid of stitching. Prada Linea Rossa hits stores in September in select Prada store and department stores as well as on the brands website.

Wang’s Way

26.07.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

For his A/W 12 collection, Alexander Wang put on quite the visual spectacle – mirrors, supermodel reunions and all – making his minimalist campaign lensed by David Sims and starring Kati Nescher a complete departure, but no less captivating.

The New York designer’s collection, inspired by the surrealist manipulation of fabrics, is presented in simple black and white studio photographs, all the better for highlighting Wang’s clean-lined tailoring and outerwear invigorated by accents such as the Cubist slicing of a high-collared coat or slightly macabre mouth-covering fishnet turtlenecks.

In the span of five short and extremely successful years, Wang has progressed from painfully hip downtown designer to a creator with finesse and these images are just the thing to prove it.
