Stella McCartney Reveals Winter 2018 Ad Campaign

platinum

Published

on

Stella McCartney reveals her new Winter 2018 Ad Campaign featuring striking images that embrace nature and a sense of escape and freedom. Shot in Mull of Kintyre, the remote Scottish countryside where Stella spent part of her childhood, the campaign is the second collaboration with British photographer Johnny Dufort. The images shot amidst the beautiful landscape reflect the new collections’ softly deconstructed classic and timeless looks punctuated with moments of Stella’s irreverent sprit; presenting both beauty and chaos. Referencing local culture, Stella even enlisted the talents of the Kintyre School Pipe Band which was led by one of the original pipers who played in the Wing’s “Mull of Kintyre” music video.

The new campaign images feature the models from the designer’s Winter 2018 runway show cast; Nina Marker, He Cong and Julia Banas appear in Stella’s designs that emphasize her signature silhouettes, palette and textures in updated classic tailoring, reconstructed dresses and statement knitwear paired with the latest styles of the iconic Falabella bag. Also featured in the new campaign is the designer’s eco innovative Loop sneaker which through technically designed hooks and special stitching that replaces conventional gluing methods allows the Loop’s components to be easily dismantled into 3 parts which are100% fully recyclable, illustrating a more circular product design.

In keeping with Stella’s commitment to sustainability, the new campaign also celebrates the luxury and texture of nature, highlighting the raw beauty of the Scottish landscape; from wild spongy moss to crisp autumn leaves. The organic scenery echoes the use of moss and rockery in the newly opened 23 Old Bond Street store and is juxtaposed with the textures and silhouettes of the collection. A parachute encapsulates volumne and movement as a backdrop to an embroidered lace dress; while a colourful and vibrant piñata shot references grand old painting compositions showcasing minimalist black and white looks.

In addition to the print campaign, is a mood film that further illustrates the spirit of the collection which is going live on www.stellamccartney.com, and the brand’s social media platforms today.

Philipp Plein’s Women’s and Men’s Spring/ Summer 2019 Fashion Show

Published

Chris Brown, dance-duo Ayo and Teo, rapper 6ix9ine and the wild cast of Cirque Le Soir all perform on a giant mirrored table seating 180 VIP guests… Welcome to Philipp Plein’s Spring/Summer 2019 extravaganza. It’s going to be a real thriller.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the global Philipp Plein brand and to warm up for this incredible milestone, Plein creates a tribute to one of his lifelong heroes: Michael Jackson. On a mirrored runway surrounded by mirrors – tonight everyone is the Man in the Mirror – the iconic symbols of the King of Pop, from his gloves and hats to those Billie Jean socks, are given the full Plein treatment. Cue a military-meets-rock’n’roll collection embellished with paillettes, precious stones, fringing, studs, skulls and crystals in black and white gold.

The collection – worn by a supermodel line-up of 30 Smooth Criminals and 30 Dirty Dianas – features favourite Plein fabrics like distressed leather and denim, shiny latex and gold-leafed python. Multi-belts hung around the waist, buckled leather gloves and boots, straps and armbands all inject the serious rebel attitude of Bad. Merging street style with formal looks, the men’s section slides effortlessly from leather quilted tracksuits and sleeveless tour t-shirts to drummer-parade jackets and Dangerous-style monochrome suiting and fedoras. Similarly, the women’s wardrobe mixes skin-tight denim and biker jackets with upscale eveningwear like figure-hugging gowns worn with oversized men’s sparkling jackets and, for the ultimate in show-stopping glamour, bejeweled Janet Jackson bodice dresses.

Two decades ago, at the beginning of the brand, the first piece that Philipp Plein made was a hand-customised military parka and, with it, the street couture phenomenon was born. Returning to those roots, this season there are camouflage hooded parkas and field jackets decorated in patches and metallic detailing throughout the collection.

Spring/Summer 2019 is a personal story for Philipp Plein and a crowning moment for the King of Fashion. This season, he is making history. So come and celebrate with Rita Ora at the after-party.
