a staggeringly large cast of veteran & new model talent was photographed for the summer/spring 2011 dsquared² campaign. through the lens of mert alas + marcus piggot, the images fuse styling of athleticism to that of masculine formal wear & provide an all around glamorously simple direction for the ease of spring. every element that has become recognized of the brand is represented & very well. admittedly, i had not expected much after seeing a small preview of the campaign but after seeing the image series in totality, im in love. while jean carlos is already a rising star, new male model, diego miguel makes a debut & is sure to be a star in the new year. styled by katie grand with art direction by giovanni bianco- i love this campaign.
