an extended look at the FW10 campaign is provided through this set, which was shot by josh olins. staying in line with their signature white studio backdrop & high contrast styling, the campaign is noticeably more lifeless this season. at first glance, i dubbed the campaign as lifeless & colorless- after seeing the first shot. i completely admire the bennetton brand for always breaking barriers & basically creating a prototype for what commercially marketed apparel companies should be doing. much of what bennetton does is very relative to both H&M & the gap. being that the brand has been in existence since 1965, its clear that they have become a leader for other competing companies. we see a few faces we know in the form of abiah hostevedt, francisco lachowski, corey baptiste & chrishell stubbs. maybe it’s because im used to the contrast being turned waaay up with their campaigns, but even with the additions of color- models & clothes alike, the campaign still lacks intrigue.
