SS 2013 Ad Campaigns

Here they are and February issues of magazines will be filled with them. Most of these have been online for a while but they keep on coming. I’ve already seen over 360 photos.

Take a look who survived through my not-so-easy-to-please eyes so far.

My Absolute Favorite

Miu Miu
What photography, colors, scene settings, captures. Beautiful! One of Miu Miu’s best ever. I’m digging the clothes too.

and some other ads that I like, in no particular order:

Chloé
but favorite brands first : ). Always lovely. Cool romantics.

 

Balenciaga
Great photography and model selection. Super like.
(And that bag and the top in the middle)

 

Reed Krakoff
Love it. Love the art direction – stylish, chic, luxe-feel, yet not pertinacious.

 

Piece d’Anarchive
starring arizona Muse. Love it. Unexpected, simple yet great.

more black and white.

Givenchy
(oh, those sunnies)

 

Saint Laurent
Hedi Slimane photo-magic.

 

Loius Vuitton
Checked. Like the ads, learning to like this collection.

 

Gucci
Finally something from Gucci ads that I like. Starring Anja Rubik and Carmen Pedaru and that fine towards-violet-blue color.

 

Prada
I love this particular ad from Prada. Other ads are perfect as well but I kind of have a problem with some of the clothes – you know, sock-shoe moment.

Valentino
Romantic, but with an attitude, at first look a bit modest with color reduction but they’ve got the power. Like it.

 

Max Mara Studio
lovely 60s vibe.

 

And still not sure about this one

Proenza Schouler
New thing – yes. Different – yes. Do I like it – not sure. I like it for an editorial (i.e. Dazed and Confused) but I’m not sure it’s right for the campaign. I don’t like the hair on any of the campaign ads and on this you can barely see the clothes. So no, methinks.

RIKA

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ART DIRECTION in a (fashion) magazine, I’ve ever seen.

Rika Magazine is the independent bi-annual publication created in 2010 by Ulrika Lundgren, founder of the label Rika, and Jacob Wildschiødtz, design director of LOVE magazine. This is what they say about their lovechild:

Rika Magazine travels to the story-land of the stars. We pick up on wildflowerish souls, strong female leads whose creativity not only shows a strong emotional intelligence but inspires and leaves a great impact.
Rika looks at women as muses, creators, fighters and lovers in the fields.

Some of their published issue covers and inside spreads. Enjoy.

DANSK

Being a magazine addict, I couldn’t wait to get my hands and eyes on Danish magazines. And what I found here: very good fashion magazine selection with great editorial production and aesthetic. I don’t know the language yet so I just look at the pictures and it`s not even a bit less interesting. Just a glimpse of what I’m referring to:
