Throwback Blumarine—Going back to the early 2000s, we highlight Blumarine’s fall 2002 campaign for this week’s Throwback Thursday. The advertisements starred Shalom Harlow who posed in a countryside manor setting. Tim Walker photographed the campaign, and as you may know, set design is often a key part of his photographs. With an eclectic whimsical backdrop, Shalom brought the drama in the advertisements with her statuesque poses. Fast forward to today and Shalom is still a force. Just last year, she starred in Tiffany & Co’s spring campaign.
All Glammed Up – Star photographer Michael Thompson snaps a bevy of models wearing enviable bling for Tiffany & Co.’s spring 2013 advertising campaign. Supermodels Liu Wen, Karen Elson, Doutzen Kroes, Shalom Harlow, Liya Kebede and Arizona Muse all pose in gorgeous evening gowns which set off Tiffany & Co’s new season jewelry beautifully. We love the old Hollywood glamour that stylist Paul Cavaco has brought to this advertising campaign. / Hair by Serge Normant, Makeup by Gucci Westman
McCartney’s Starry Evening – Stella McCartney’s fall 2012 evening collection enlisted some top names for the lookbook including Shalom Harlow, Amber Valletta and Alexa Chung as models. The new collection is simple yet elegant featuring minimal shapes, marble prints, delicate lace and color blocking. A dreamy color palette of orange, cobalt blue, sea foam green, black and white is used to emphasize architectural contours. Metallic accents on belts and other accessories bring a glam touch to the evening looks.
Wang’s Pared Down Fall – After last season’s array of prints and racing motifs, Alexander Wang chose a more pared down approach for his fall 2012 show featuring an all-star cast including Gisele Bundchen, Shalom Harlow, Frankie Rayder and Karolina Kurkova amongst others. This season went back to Wang’s roots albeit a tad more polished with leather coats, netted masks which covered models’ lower faces and knitted sweaters. The collection was minimal with a focus on embellishments such as military inspired accents on trench coats, chiffon tops and sculpted shoulders. Despite its simplicity, the showing turned out to be one of the designer’s strongest efforts yet proving less is indeed more.
