The Spring 2014 campaigns are here, kind of. Last night, ahead of all the official online releases, tFS Forum member Northern Star (perfect handle) scanned and shared several major Spring 2014 campaigns from his Feburary Issue of Tatler. Notable ads were from Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Giorgio Armani and Prada*.
So much fashion, so much spring. For a second, you might forget how cold it is outside:
Amanda Murphy for Bottega Veneta
Fiercification: "Just perfection."
Lindsey Wixson for Chanel (by Karl Lagerfeld)
Fiercification: "Lindsey looks really good with red hair (as she did in Mulberry S/S 2011)...I really couldn't give a toss about Chanel as a whole anymore, but these images certainly suggest a far less painful outing than recent ones we've been subjected to by Mr. Lagerfeld."
Stella Tennant for Christian Dior
HeatherAnne: "I hate the styling... The setup seems promising though, it gives off the same attitude as the F/W 2013 campaign. Stella definitely looks stunning, it's interesting to see her finally nab another Dior campaign after such a strong attachment to Chanel in recent years. I look forward to seeing more."
anlabe32: "What a gorgeous shot! It's so light and easy. Feels very vintage like the two previous campaigns. It's hard to top last season, but this is promising."
hexagon sun: "Quintessential Dior, this is gorgeous. Stella is a nice surprise and fits the aesthetic perfectly."
Flashbang: "The inclusion of the yellow bag bugs me so much. It somehow ruined the whole colour composition of the picture."
Prada by Steven Meisel
"Prada Army" — left: Lexi Boling, Ophelie Guillermand, Amanda Murphy, Lera Tribel, Ashleigh Good, Gracie Van Gastel / right: Ola Rudnicka, Sabrina Ioffreda, Julia Bergshoeff, Maarjan Ridalaan, Anna Ewers, Cindy Bruna
anlabe32: "It definitely needs to sink in. There's just so much going on."
Nicky2101: "I love it. It's awesome. It's supposed to look this way. The models are meant to blend in with the clothes. The crowded scene is supposed to blend with the 'crowded' prints."
Moofins: "I find it to be a bit boring, which is weird because it was one of the most unforgettable collections of the season."
matsuchan92: "There are 12 girls & the total of the models should be 14 right? Where are the two other models?"
*I reached out to Prada to confirm the full campaign cast but received an out-of-office auto-reply. As expected, European-based luxury houses enjoy luxurious, European holiday vacations.
