Spring 2012 Advertising Campaigns the Top 20 thus far: 10th-6th place

10th

BALLY

This is a cool campaign. It stars Miranda Kerr and Julia Stegner who look absolutely stunning in their Bally day wear.

The juxtaposition of the chilly snow-topped with the tailored sophistication of the clothing is brilliant.

This goergoeus campaign was shot by Norma Jean Roy in Switzerland and creatively styled by Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme.

I want to be there. Dressed equally as impeccably. Great Styling and and creative direction enhance this shot.

9th

GIORGIO ARMANI

Girogio Armani really does a great job with their tailoring and this classic suit is no exception of that. The campaign is extremly easy but the imagery is sharp. Male model Simon Nessman was a great casting choice.

This model is a gem. I'm sure I have seen her before now she is officially on my radar. Who is she?

Her name is Milou Van Groesen. She does exude that European brovado that I have come to love in models like Freja. That jawline and strong angular features compliment the tailoring of the clothes so well. It could just easily have been menswear and she would have pulled it off with this same finesse.

 

The soft background of the beach behind these models is a creative plus. It works and Mert Alas and Marcus Pigott got it right!

8th

Salvatore Ferragamo

Shot in Jamaica, I really fought to not like this campaign photo because it reminds me in a way of that Naomi Campell for Dolce and Gabbana Animal Inspired eyewear last spring season. I mean it's nice to look at and it embodies that summer glow.

Again Gisele is not my favourite but she is so fierce in this image shot by Mikael Jassen. I know it's not resort ...

It's absolutely perfect for vacation and honestly what is Resort if not the sister season of Spring. Noah Mills is the perfect sexy consort in this shot and to be quite honest I prefer Ferragamo men to their womens collections anyway. So I'm glad to see him here.

S-E-X-Y. This is what Gisele does best and it's completely understandble why she is the face of Salvatore's spring but mostly Summer.

7th

Donna Karan

Shot in Haiti by photographer Russell James these stunning images are made even more exotic(cliche word, I know) by swimwear model Adriana Lima.

It is always good to see a VS model out of her swimwear element and this is no different. This was good casting. This particular shot is my favourite Adriana evokes a strength which seems to represents that of the Haitian people.

The entire collection was inspired by Donna's travels to the imporverished Caribbean country and prints of the Haitian artist Philippe Dodard were used to help create patterns on some garments. A sense of tribal-utiltarian-resort chic comes throught from the clothing worn in the campaign.

This is Donna's signature: incredible draping and this is a very organic shot shot although it seems a bit forced but you still get a feeling like she is a beautiful plant in the rubble.

6th

PRADA

This has got to be the best literally themed campaign presentation for summer. Prada this season seems to be taking a leaf out of the Mui Mui booklet what a great set of photographs shot by Steven Meisel.

Spring/Summer 2012 for Prada features models Kati Nescher, Meghan Collison, Natasha Poly, Elise Crombez, Ymre Stiekema and Kathryn Kruger who are 1950S bombshells with the perfect accessories to match. Seriously, the accessories are screaming my name.

I picked this shot because every season I look to PRADA (or Tom Ford) for the most interesting eyewear. This is Prada's winning season, sorry Tom.

I'm betting by now you are wondering why Prada isnt in the top five but the level of the campaigns shot this season. I had to post these shoes. Don't you just see how amazing the contrast of the feminine with the muscle cars and gas station scene is?

I already said I love quirky accessories so you know I'm simply posting this shot for my personal pleasure. Flaming heels...got to love it or really hate it.
