'B' IS FOR BRAND CAMPAIGNS FOR FALL/WINTER 2010

Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘B’ is for BRAND CAMPAIGNS (DESIGNER, THAT IS!) FOR FALL/WINTER 2010!

As you know, brand campaigns are hugely important to designers and fashion houses alike for marketing their upcoming wares. Their very own global market stall, if you like! Here are some of the most prominent for Fall/Winter 2010. Btw you’ll notice Madonna's and Louis Vuitton’s are both retro-inspired.

1-2 Giselle Bundchen- Robert Cavalli (above & below)
3-5. Madonna – D & G
6-7 Julianne Moore - Bulgari

8-13 Christy Turlington, Karen Elson & Natalia Vodianova - Louis Vuitton
14-16 Milla Jovovich – Escada
WHICH OF THESE BRAND CAMPAIGNS DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL? ANY ONE IMAGE ESPECIALLY EFFECTIVE? ANY THAT DON’T WORK FOR YOU?

Do tell me! And do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts @ Jenny Matlock!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers and also new followers who visited or commented this week! Have a great weekend!
And see you again for Ruby Tuesday!
Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)

The Louis Vuitton by a long shot for me. They are classy, dreamy and simply tasteful and stylish. I don't know, for me, something like that is way more appealing than showing too much of the human body. I am more drawn to that which speaks romance and love more loudly than greed and lust. Glad I came back for a second visit today.

Much love!!

Michelle said...

Love the images of Madonna and Louis Vuitton-refreshing nod to the past!lol Love the post!

Jan said...

Louis Vuitton hits the spot for me too! So stylish and classy! :-)

Holly said...

Word veri's "vutton" which also happens to be my choice too. Love the Vuitton campaign's old-fashioned style -so tasteful.Love the post too! 8-)

Brenda said...

I like the Louis Vuitton designs the best and how they are shown here.

LV said...

The fall fashions are certainly not designed with the senior ladies in mind. These will look very nice on some young thing.

Jo said...

I love the Louis Vuitton, but i do think the D&G campaign is better.

myorii said...

Ooo, these are some amazing brand campaign ads! Wow, totally stunning and gorgeous to look at! I agree with the others...the Louis Vuitton one is my favorite one. Totally classic beauty and very nicely done. Plus, I can see the bags pretty clearly which is a good thing since that's what they sell :)

I saw photos 6-7 on another blog, aren't the cubs cute?

No.14 didn't work for me. Photos 8-13 are so much fun :)

Swirls and twirls,
Berlin

Mike said...

D & G and Louis Vuitton are the most successful imho! Great photography & great post!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

They all look like they should be successful.

I wish I had inherited the "style" gene instead of the "practical" gene....sigh..

Sue said...

Louis Vuitton. It's classier, to me.

=)

Heavenly Housewife said...

I'd imagine the Madonna one is the most successful and the most beautifully shot, but clothes wise, I like the Vuitton ones the best.

i liked the dolce the best. i'm not crazy about the ad campaign with julianne moore. i don't think nudity markets a product very well. more often than not the eye is drawn to the model.

Judie said...

WOW! You have a BUNCH of B's!

Nora, my granddaughter is spending the semester in Spain, studying. Her blog is Mi Vida en Espana.

Lola is beautiful!!

Happy weekend

I loved the Louis Vitton retro pictures the best. Second...Julianne Moore....and the purses. Of course, I love a fun purse!

Pondside said...

I am always out of sync with popular opinion, so I'm sure I have no idea of what is the most successful campaign, but I like the Vuitton add the best.

Terra said...

Since I am a jeans kind of gal...none of these really got to me. but I did enjoy the post

Jenny said...

Hi! Not sure why my first comment here didn't show up, but that's OK because I noticed things in the pictures that I missed the first time.

I know so little about fashion that I've never heard of Brand Campaigns. It is quite fascinating...and something that never comes up on Project Runway! ha!

I loved seeing the progression of fashion. That was quite fascinating.

Thanks for sharing your love and knowledge of fashion and design with us.

A+
