Lara Stone and Kate Moss joined forces in Balenciaga‘s campaign last season and now another duo comes together in the French fashion house’s new Spring 2016 campaign. Alexander Wang favorite Anna Ewers is welcomed back as the face of the collection and joined by Zoe Kravitz , making for an interesting and stimulating collaboration. Photographed by Steven Klein (everyone’s favorite photographer this season), the campaign leaves our forums with mixed views.
Also full of praise was Lola701: “This is good! It actually reminds me of the Diana Dondoe campaign for Balenciaga back in Spring 2004. It has the same airy feel. I love it!”
“Love it! Anna looks stunning, and her alone would’ve been far better,” pointed out Benn98, taking the conversation down a different route.
Valentine27 was in the same frame of mind, replying, “The collection was atrocious but I love it so far. I’m skeptical about Zoe Kravitz though.”
Echoing the same sentiments was MON: “I love it. Effortless on Anna’s part. Meanwhile, that girl behind her ruins the shot completely.”
“Background girl can just keep on walking, preferably out of shot completely,” suggested tigerrouge.
“I’m just thankful to see a black girl in this white-washed industry. For those saying ‘Anna should be by herself,’ I ask why? When there are so many campaigns with white girls. Who cares if it’s a celebrity. At least we are getting some diversity,” fired back XavierRaphael.
