Cinematic retro

Three of my favorite spring 2012 campaigns have a really cool retro vibe with a heavy cinematographic feel to them. They also have the classic beauty called Natasha Poly in common.

The spring 2012 campaign for Prada is photographed by Steven Meisel at a gas station (hinting at the colorful car prints used in the collection) and features Natasha Poly alongside Meghan Collison, Elise Crombez, Ymre Stiekema and Katryn Kruger.


The 1950 are heavily referenced in Proenza Schouler 2012 spring campaign: the tropical prints look amazing on a pin up Natasha with messy rockabilly hairstyle. The pictures seen through Willy Vanderperre’s lenses look like vintage postcards. I’m absolutely in love with Olivier Rizzo’s styling for this campaign.


Finally there are Jil Sander’s ads photographed by the same Willy Vanderperre. This time the 50’s inspired spring collection gets an authentic Hitchcock vibe and all the creepy and cool of a film noir atmosphere.

Photos: 1, 2.
Which one do you like best?

Wow... What a wonderful way to start a new year! I'm not generally a fan of retro, but those images are gorgeous. I really cannot decide between the three, equally as fabulous!

Happy New Year Sara!
The photos are fantastic.
Prada - love the pink blouse and skirt.
Proenza- absolutely love the backless dress but def wouldn't wear it with those shoes
Jill Sander - love the clean lines of the green dress, but the white dress is too clinical looking.
Check out the Pringles Pre-Fall collection on my blog and tell me which one you like best:

Though the cuts are interesting (I really like the skirt in the second picture, as well as the Prcenza Schouler outfit) I'm not into the prints in this campaign.

Prada always gets it right.

I love these pictures, and there are some truly beautiful pieces of clothing, but there is a part of me that's sad. The poses that are more pin-up just don't look right. Those kind of poses need muscles or curves, not just skin and bones.

Sara said...

Love them all but personally I think Jil Sander takes the first prize!

Bisous, Sara

Vina Yabut said...

I am obsessed with PS. I love how 50's inspired that collection looks. Also the high waisted pencil skirts are amazing!
