jourdan dunn + sacha m’baye for burberry prorsum, spring

shot by mario testino, jourdan dunn + sacha m’baye appear for a this campaign cameo for burberry prorsum’s spring collection. during the FW11 menswear show season, i had inquired about the male model seen for runway look no. 16 at the dolce show & look at who pops up in the burberry SS11 campaign- yes, sacha. as i had made a conscious decision to  opt out of posting the previously released burberry campaign images, i am very put off by the segregation that is seen in the campaign. as if black & white models couldn’t be photographed together the campaign showcases a release of separate sets this season. i am not clear what message they are looking to broadcast. as two of my favorite model faces in fashion, im very excited for the spot no less. represented by women model management, jourdan dunn has remained a strong force in her return to the runway last year & the new year looks like the same powerful force; represented by select london, sacha’s star is rapidly rising.

lara stone + alexander johansson for ck by calvin klein, spring

as a calvin klein favorite, lara stone continues her double booking gig with the iconic american fashion house for their ck by calvin klein spring campaign. shot by mert + marcus, the campaign steers in the same lane as the calvin klein collection advertisments, appealing to consumers with clean design lines- with a bit more style causality. fresh design is seen on the bodies of not only lara stone, whom is represented by IMG, but alexander johansson of new york models co-stars as well. all in all, the campaign serves it’s purpose beautifully & the collection shines through inspiring movement & natural light.

hannelore knuts for akris, spring

belgian female model, hannelore knuts appears for the akris spring campaign this season & appears doll faced & stiff. representing the akris brand perfectly, the poise & overall image shot for this season showscases structure, architectual lines & clean concepts. the starck white is well balanced with hannelore’s jet black hair & well balanced with a classic red lip. replacing daphne guinness for akris last season, hannelore is represented by ford models. at the front end of the millenium, knuts rose to model power appearing three times in a row for italian vogue & has since shot numerous editorials & walked for many designers internationally. you might recognize her  as one of the models that was cast alongside natasha poly for H&M’s lanvin collection; through video as well as on the runway. a thoughtful image that is true to the brand’s aesthetic.

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.
