I the shots and the cast of models!
It would have make a good editorial but it's not enough if this is a campaign.
And, it doesn't look like one either.

They've done high quality lookbooks in the past (Tasha Tilberg by Dan Jackson, Missy Rayder by Sebastian Kim), but I've never seen an Alexander Wang ad in print. I doubt these will run in magazines either, but who knows.

This is what Wang said last season:

The images certainly feel campaign-worthy, but Wang currently has no plans to buy ad pages. "It's funny, I just heard recently about all these young designers doing mini campaigns," he says. "But we've always had an editorial element to our lookbooks."

As an editorial, it would have been (boring but) nice; but as an ad campaign, I don't see its point. It's too dark to see and make me want to buy the clothes, it doesn't show the designer's mood, so...

it does seem a very lazy option , IMO i think he could of gone above and beyond this
the only good part of the campaign i suppose would be his selection of models

The casting is the only good thing about this. The images looks nice, but kinda boring. Edita outshines everyone!

i love the model casting & seeing these images with the brand logo will seal the deal for me.

I love Edita's.
I agree about the casting being good and the results turning out bad

I love the simplicity but the pics are badly airbrushed/photoshopped especially Jacquelyn's

I think they wanted a sort of raw/effortless look. But I think the ~lack~ of "airbrushing" worked to their disadvantage. I love Liu but her face could have used a little touch up especially under the eyes. Or simply a better angle.

Jacq's face i think had good lighting (i think her skin bounces off the light well) but a bad angle in the close-up. She still looks good but not that's not her best angle.

The clothes and the models choice are fantastic but in my opinion the pictures look very amateur. But then that's probably the look that the designer was going for. For me it just fails. Too bad cause I really love the clothes.

I agree Edita looks amazing, followed by Anja. Jaquelyne's photos are so photoshoped
