Chloe-spring-2018-ad-campaign-the-impression-01
For her first ad campaign outing for Chloé, Creative Director Natacha Ramsey-Levi and creative agency M/M Paris put P.T. Barnum’s quote ‘Nothing draws a crowd quite like a crowd to good use. The campaign is a series of stunning still lifts from a silent film by lensman Steven Meisel of models bustling on a series of Louvre like steps. Motion blurs blend with sophisticated coloring, while accessories get their due and the house walks the walk of feminine bonding they have long been known for. It is after all a house founded by a female with strong female creatives. Models Alex Mark, Rianne van Rompaey, Charlene Högger, Eliza Cummings, Fran Summers, Hayett McCarthy, Jing Wen, Line Kjaergaard, Makala Johnson, Radhika Nair, & Sophie Koella all dash to and fro...

Posing for family portraits as a teenager is always a drag, but when you and your siblings are the supermodel spawn of Cindy Crawford, it's a tad less embarrassing.
Taking sibling portraits to the next level, Kaia and Presley Gerber front the Spring 2018 campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans together. The teenage modeling duo appears in the brand's latest #MyCalvins ads titled 'Our Youth' and photographed by Willy Vanderperre.

Cindy Crawford And Kaia Gerber Look Identical In Their Versace Campaigns, 30 Years Apart

From landing her first beauty campaign to walking her first fashion month, Kaia Gerber is the biggest breakout star of the year. But as the 16-year-old continues to make a name for herself, the inevitable comparisons to her supermodel mom, Cindy Crawford, carry on. How could they not, though, with mother-daughter similarities as spot-on as theirs? Now the latest subject of comparison is their Versace campaigns. After walking for the designer in Milan this September (in the same show as her mom), Gerber landed a place in the brand's supermodel-filled ads, costarring with icons (and her mother's contemporaries) like Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. The teen poses in a pale blue logo tee, pants, and mini bag while sporting Versace medallions as jewelry,...

Alexander Wang’s New Fall Campaign Comes With Rolling Papers, Lighters, And Ash Trays

Alexander Wang revealed his Fall 2017 campaign yesterday, starring classic Wang Squad members like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, and Hanne Gaby. The models wear black with matching studded boots, bedhead hair and smoky eyeliner for the "No After Party"-themed ads. The images echo the designer's Fall 2017 presentation in February at RKO Hamilton Theater in Harlem, NYC. Juergen Teller shot the models right after walking the runway, as they hosted their own after-party in the basement of the theater and strutted the icy streets of New York. But the campaign goes beyond glossy images; Wang also hopped on the merch trend and released smoking and drinking accessories emblazoned with the ads. There are rolling papers, ultra-thin...

Gucci Enlists Dapper Dan For Its New Campaign

Fret not, fashion folk: all is well between Gucci and Dapper Dan! The Italian brand has just tapped the Harlem fashion icon for its men’s tailoring campaign.
Dan (real name Daniel Day) made a name for himself in the 1980s for his made-to-order designs that often re-appropriated logos from famous fashion houses. One of his most iconic pieces—a jacket with oversized sleeves featuring the Louis Vuitton logo—was re-worked by Alessandro Michele for Gucci’s cruise 2018 collection with the interlocking Gucci logo. This set off a firestorm of debate in the fashion world as to whether or not Michele had copied Dan.
