The Fall 2015 advertising campaigns are still trickling out and we suspect Prabal Gurung‘s to be last (but not least) to surface. The images certainly prove less is more and with minimalist photographer Daniel Jackson thrown into the mix, we’re loving the starkness of the campaign. Caroline Trentini, who also stars in Versace’s current campaign, was the designer’s model of choice this season. The Brazilian beauty strikes some dynamic poses in the studio with stark lighting and simple styling (or lack thereof). Could this be the best ad of the season?
The majority on out forums don’t think so. “Is she peeing in the first one?” asked a mortified madzedre the minute the campaign struck.
“Nice and clean, like a 90s advert. Although the nudity is unnecessary. They should have given her maybe a sheer cotton shirt. That position is never a good idea for someone that’s nude,” Urban Stylin chimed in.
Justaguy was left feeling uneasy too, adding, “Hmmm not sure what to make of this campaign. It does have that 90s/Calvin Klein look referenced above, but I would have expected something better from Caroline & Daniel Jackson.”
“Pretty awful IMO, no real concept and the logo just thrown in the lower right with no real use of the overbearing white space. Forgettable amidst much more thought out campaigns this season,” slammed qual.
Nepenthes soon lifted the mood, sharing a different opinion. “I might be on my own but I actually love the nude shot; she makes the pose work imo! The other one’s great as well!” he said.
“So, so beautiful. It’s just the right combination of model, lighting, photographer and clothing coming together in a nearly perfect way,” Spike413 raved.
