un petit examen de vogue…#1

16 October 2008

“Hardwork is painful when life is devoid of purpose. but when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.”

 – Steve Pavilina


I think this is one of my favorite holiday campaigns. Can you guess which designer/brand this belongs to? I am infatuated with the juxtaposition of luxurious dresses, fabrics, and sequins against the ruggedness of the background, balancing strong femininity & a little bit of sexiness with masculinity. The colors are amazing as well; the blots of teals, reds, browns, and purples add a jewel tone quality to the photographs. The color palette of such bold tones are perfect for this years fall/winter season! The director behind this campaign is genius; I am awe-inspired by this holiday spread. (The dresses are beautiful as well!)

P.S.: Thank you Nathan for these wonderful pictures!

    “Hardwork is painful when life is devoid of purpose. but when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.”

    This quote is incredible, and ironically exactly what I’ve been realizing lately…

    And these photos are beautiful, though I have no idea whose campaign it is! 😉

    those photographs are beautiful! they do look a bit like miu miu…but not as dark as its usual celebrity endorsed campaigns. it reminds me of lanvin too.

    do tell the answer, La C!
