kasia struss for miu miu, spring

through the lens of mert + marcus this stunning image was produced starring kasia struss. represented by women model management, the polish female models is to be joined by querelle jansen & sasha pivovarova for the spring campaign; though those images have not yet been revealed. going from playful to more upscale & mature, the powerful red floor combined with the mirrored backdrop is a sickenly ill accent to the incredible footwear from the collection & allows the printed designs & color blocking of the collection to be seen that much more. mert + marcus are among the best in the business & here they have proven their skill in creating marketable fashion images that attract the art eye as well. beautifully shot.

elisa sednaoui for giorgio armani, spring

represented by IMG models, elisa sednaoui appears for the giorgio armani summer/spring 2011 campaign, through the lens of nick knight. highlighting a wardrobe slightly in motion, along with beautiful lighting; i find that most anything nick knight creates is stunning. as for this collection, during spring show season i reviewed it to a less than spectacular rating, overall. but here the collection actually transforms & exudes more of the armani essence then during the actual runway show. the clothes look beautiful & have made me second guess my judgement of the poorly produced runway show in milan. well done.

daria werbowy + clement chabernaud for ferragamo, spring

mario testino photographed daria werbowy of IMG models & clement chaubernaud of wilhelmina for the SS11 salvatore ferragamo ad campaign. refined & classically styled with a bit of italian influence- the images are perfectly produced for the spring season. the direction of spring is always much more relaxed than those of the fall; that sense of relaxation is projected well through these images by testino. the use of natural light & shadows is done beautifully. fitting for the season, completely.
