mariacarla boscono + andres velencoso sgura for loewe, spring

while mert & marcus continue to dominate the campaign circuit one image at a time, mariacarla of women models & andres of wilhelmina star in the spring campaign for spanish label, loewe. the bold palette of the collection is seen with dark undertones & chic contrast. while the backdrop serves as a connection to the labels heritage, the textiles chosen for the collection allow a greater feel of modernization. styled by katie grand, with make-up & hair by lucia pieroni & paul hanlon; most everything mariacarla is cast in, she fuckn murders. this season, for this campaign, is no different. a powerful combination these two.

karolina kurkova for bottega veneta, spring

appearing for her second ad campaign this season, karolina kurkova appears through the lens of alex pragner for the summer/spring 2011 bottega veneta campaign. represented by IMG, kurkova manages to stay relevant in booking multiple campaigns each season & she also booked the spring max mara campaign. walking for victoria’s secret & consistently booking & blazing high end editorial, internationally- kurkova holds the rank as fashion’s no. 7 highest earning & the no. 19 sexiest. though only a single shot is seen here, the open air shot with the bird flying in the backdrop is a clear indication of the campaigns direction. while bottega venete also boasts acessories- im hoping that more images will surface as the new year progresses. though not spectacular, i can do nothing but respect karolina for as long as she has been in this game & working.

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.

karlie kloss for dior, spring

represented by next models ny, karlie kloss appears for the spring dior campaign. clad in the iconic fashion houses seaside inspired collection, we see kloss against a teal studio backdrop along with element of the wilderness, including a branch & simulated silhouettes of palm trees. creatively, the fall campaign that kloss did last season had much more style validity for me; that said, the collection was fun & feminine- two elements which are well captured here. shot by steven meisel, this is karlie’s third dior campaign in a row. a feat not many models are able to accomplish, especially so early on in their career.
