It is August and the majority of fall campaigns can be seen now in the new fashion magazines, ads just keep coming out of the woodwork and so I wanted to give you a brief summary of the most important ones and by whom they were shot.
It is funny to see that this world in particular is pretty small and some photographers are ahead of the game.

Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta

My personal favourite is Bottega Veneta`s strong expressive F/W 2010 campaign. Shot by the godfather of energetic graphic photography himself: Robert Longo. The artist has became famous in the late 1970s and early 1980s with his series „Men in the Cities“ that depicts men and women in business attire contorted in extreme positions.

With its successful signature fragrances, Burberry has already dipped its toe in the cosmetic industry. Now, the English brand will immerse one step further with the launch of a 96-piece beauty collection that according to its creative director Christopher Bailey „reflects the natural style and relaxed attitude“ of the iconic coat. The wearable shades of powders, bronzers, lipsticks, lip glosses, eyeliners and more come unsurprisingly in a cool Burberry check packaging.

The campaign for the new Burberry Beauty line was shot by Mario Testino and features three English faces: Lily Donaldson, Nina Porter and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

I am in love with the eye shadow in taupe brown n°7 and the blush in russet n°1. Said to keeping itself exclusive, the new beauty must-haves will be hard to get. For Europe, check out Harrods in London, for the US and Australia Nordstrom and for Asia Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
Good Luck!

LoL, Sandra
