In a similar spirit to the preceding cruise campaign, photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott continue with their fascination of capturing poolside relaxation in the Gucci‘s latest campaign. The spring ads star Natasha Poly and Ryan Kennedy as one sleek duo.

Season after season, one of the most anticipated campaigns comes from the Gucci brand. Not only are we interested in who will be in the ads but who will photograph them. For the fall-winter season, Inez & Vinoodh play the role of photographers and the models include Adrian Bosch, Benoni Loos, Christian Brylle, Gerhard Freidl, Matvey Lykov, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Anja Rubik, Dree Hemingway, Freja Beha Erichsen, Jacquetta Wheeler, Jamie Bochert, Myf Shepherd, Natasha Poly, and Raquel Zimmermann. With such a large and varied cast, it seems like almost everybody gets their equal share of the spotlight.
“Cyclades”, from a 2006 issue of Numéro is absolutely heavenly. Model Natasha Poly is on her A-game per usual, and Camilla Akrans’s clean aesthetic comes off as refreshing here.
2006′s “Le Jeu” is a rare editorial which features one shot of each model yet still manages to stay cohesive thanks to concrete styling and aesthetic. Looking at the images, it is interesting to see how these particular models have changed over the past three years. Some, like Raquel Zimmermann and Natasha Poly, have managed to stay at the top of their game. While others such as, Gemma Ward or Iselin Steiro, took a break from modeling or have left the business altogether. Nevertheless, “Le Jeu” is up there with some of the greatest Vogue Paris editorials.
Natasha and Anja show off their gams for French Vogue‘s “A Toutes Jambes”. Innovative styling comes into play from fashion director, Emmanuelle Alt, who manages to implement stockings in a myriad of ways.
