Provocative ad campaign for Dior Homme

Do you think fashion folks go too far with their challenging ideas? The hobo/homeless chic trend in fashion meaning dressing down to the point you look like you don't give a f...nickel on fashion (but you do, a lot) is very well interpreted in the spring/summer 2011 ad campaign for luxury fashion brand Dior Homme. Newcomer Danish model Victor Nylander is a very slick looking homeless boy shot by Belgian fashion photographer Willy Vanderperre.

Retro glamour for summer 2011 at Donna Karan

Renowned French photographer Patrick Demarchelier creates a sensual and very glamorous vibe for Donna Karan spring-summer 2011 ad campaign, set in the claustrophobic scenery of a hot sauna. It seems that fashionable TV shows set in the Great Depression Era such as Boardwalk Empire and Mildred Pierce made quite an impact in this year's trends.

Missoni family and friends gather up for spring

The tonic Missoni ad campaign for spring/summer 2011 season has the most cheerful cast I've seen in a while in fashion advertising: the Missoni family and friends all smiles, all dressed up, twirling around in vibrant printed clothes. If the ads mean to prove that bright geometric/tribal patterns, spangled with dazzling sequins and fringes look great on everybody, girls and boys, babies to seniors, they sure make a point.

Vintage folk charm at Nygardsanna

These wonderful images with a vintage effect, signed by photographer Carl Bengtsson draw together the fall/winter 2010/2011 lookbook for Swedish brand Nygårdsanna.

So, who is Patrizia?

A fun change from the overly dramatic fashion campaigns is this one here launched by Italian fashion label Patrizia Pepe for the season of fall/ winter 2010/2011. The teasing slogan invites us to speculate "Who is Patrizia?" and the images show ingenious, amusing ways to hide the model's face while focusing on the chic clothes, shoes and accessories. The whole campaign is an invitation to discovering the brand's identity and its collection for the current fashion season.
