Today we’re talking about one of the top locations whenever Milan Design Week comes around: we’re talking about the 5vie district, known as a cultural stronghold in the heart of Milan. In this article, we’re pretty much talking about one of the oldest but also emerging districts of Milan. Named after […]
The recently deceased Alessandro Mendini was without a doubt a key figure in Italian architecture, design, and illustration. Born in Milan in 1931 Mendini has left us with an everlasting influence that will continue to inspire many artists worldwide. Mendini had an intense and influential 60-year career, being a key figure in […]
Fall-Winter 2015 trends are landing in world fashion magazines, but Milan Design Agenda gives you a sneak peek of what are the next Milan Fashion Trends, with a selection of top 10 fall winter 2015 campaigns…by the famous fashion designers!
Gucci Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Alessandro Michele has returned Gucci to the tip of the industry’s tongue in just two short seasons. As the Gucci show regained its unmissable status — for advertisers and non-advertisers alike — expectations for how Michele would encapsulate his direction for the brand in print advertising rose. Although Michele art directed the brand’s Cruise 2015 campaign, Gucci’s Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign was the first that included his own designs. It is difficult to a imagine a more distinctive departure from the studio shot, still life supermodels of Frida Giannini’s tenure.
Alexander McQueen Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Subversion has been part of Alexander McQueen brand since its founder first started designing clothes. Under the creative directorship of Sarah Burton, its subversive elements have shifted, becoming more feminine, but they remain just as powerful — if in a quieter way. This Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign, shot by British photographer David Sims, is at once both hauntingly melancholic and softly romantic. Contradiction, subversion, allegory and historical reference points — a McQueen tour de force.
Marc Jacobs Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Marc Jacobs called on his friends to star in his Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign — a lot them. Set against a red backdrop, David Sims captured rarely seen facets of the character of each of his subjects, who ranged from iconic singer Cher to nine year-old Betty Lowe, sister of British model Daisy. Dripped out over Instagram, the campaign also included some very famous faces with prior associations to the brand, such as Winona Ryder and Sofia Coppola.
Céline Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
With natural hair and little or no makeup, Juergen Teller’s tightly shot portraits of the unknown models cast for this season’s Céline Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign speak to the unfussy, confident woman that the brand’s creative director Phoebe Philo continues to champion. Teller’s intimate shooting style, the thick white borders with which he frames his photography and Camilla Nickerson’s utterly believable styling of Philo’s strong take on femininity were all present.
JW Anderson Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Given how luridly colourful J.W. Anderson’s 1980s West Berlin inspired Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign, it came as a quite a surprise that the designer choose to release a campaign shot in black white. Anderson and his creative team, consisting of photographer Jamie Hawkesworth and stylist Benjamin Bruno, travelled to Estonia to cast and shoot the entire campaign on location.
Prada Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Miuccia Prada and Steven Meisel seem determined to maintain one of the longest standing creative partnerships in fashion — certainly one of the longest standing in the fickle field of fashion advertising. This season, the Brutalism of last year’s stark, concrete-filled images was replaced by seemingly random compositions of models in pretty pastel hues.
Bottega Veneta Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
This Fall-Winter 2015 season, Bottega Venetta tapped Anna Cleveland and Freddy Drabble to star in its fashion campaign. Cleveland, who is the daughter of Salvador Dali muse and modelling legend Pat Cleveland, has been heralded as the next big runway fixture since her appearance closing the Giles runway in Autumn/Winter 2014. Of all the new faces featured this season, she is likely to be one of the few with real longevity in her career.
LOEWE Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
J.W. Anderson continues to breathe fresh air into Spanish luxury brand Loewe. For the Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign, he chose once again to mine Steven Meisel’s past photographic work — as he did in his first campaign for the house. This season, Anderson selected a series of unseen black and white self-portraits of the photographer — drawn from Meisel’s private archive. One image shows Meisel as a child with four parrots, another the designer passionately kissing another man. By viewing the Loewe brand through images that evoke a sense of personal experience, Anderson’s idiosyncratic taste becomes both more accessible and relatable.
MIU MIU Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Miuccia Prada also found inspiration in the streets this season, calling on regular collaborator Steven Meisel to shoot Stacy Martin and Mia Goth, the breakout stars of Lars von Triers’ Nymphomaniac. The campaign, entitled “Subjective Reality”, reflects Meisel at his most cinematic. The taught imagery, shot in Brooklyn and East Village, captures imagined street life in a grainy documentarian style, reminiscent of film rolls from the 1950s.
Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2015 fashion campaign
Nicolas Ghesquière called upon the photographic talents of Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber once again this season. (Interestingly, Annie Leobovitz does not appear to have contributed to Louis Vuitton’s “Series Three” campaign, as she did to “Series One” and “Series Two.”). Although the campaign featured recurrent Ghesquière muses such as Jennifer Connelly and Liya Kebede, this season new faces stole focus from the regulars.
