I am 1 of millions, who were super excited when hearing that Brad Pitt would be the face of Chanel No. 5. As the first male face of Chanel N0.5, one would think that they would “Wow” us with his glorious face or let us indulge with that sexy body of his but nope, the ads and especially the commercial are pretty much awful. Womp, womp. I usually would excuse poor Brad, considering he didn’t get a say in directing this but I am sure he could have cleaned himself up a bit before being in a CHANEL!!!! campaign. Right?
To add insult to injury, the “poem” writer is Joe Wright, who has written films as big as ‘Atonement’. The words are just so awkward and definitely could have been better if this was an ad for a cheesy romance novel. Chanel is so much better than this.
Finally, what we’ve all be waiting for. The Maison Martin Margiela and H&M collaboration is finally in route and we have the Ad Campaign as proof. British artist Sam Taylor-Johnson directed the photo shoot and a series of short films. Although, we don’t have our hands on the films just yet, we’ll just have to wait till they arrive, November 8th.
I am a huge fan of Rag & Bone and I am loving the fact that Kate Moss has been chosen as the face of their first official ad campaign. Along with the ad campaign, Rag & Bone will be launching their first international store in Chelsea, London. (13-14 Sloane Square) Both Kate Moss and the brand’s designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville are from London and the shots taken by Craig McDean were actually shot their as well. David Neville tells WWD, “Although we are essentially a New York brand, our English roots have always influenced our aesthetic, and casting Kate was another nod to our heritage.” The full campaign will be in all your September issues to check out. Such an awesome step for the brand and they deserve it. Have you checked out their stuff? Simply amazing!
