i have a whole new appreciation for these ads after reading visconti's post. i'm so drawn to anything slightly creepy or "off" and these are definatley a gold mine of mystery.

These are portraits of women as warriors. The ads continue on from last season with taking the strongest looks from the runway and putting them in common, everyday scenes: a leafy safe suburb, a den replete with some fancy technology. What I feel is remarkable about the ads is that the info, the battle reports, don't seem to favor the girls or Balenciaga for that matter. They seem swallowed up, slightly lost though still armed--Suvi's shoes are strapped tightly, Anabela's in despair but in motion. These fish out of water are on the defense, though against what has clearly been left up to interpretation...

That last shot of Suvi looks like a portrait of 18th century English aristocracy, very post fox-hunt, but taken somewhere new with the ghostly undertones.

The ads have definitly grown on me a bit.

Suvi shines for these. She is so spot on for the aesthetic of this campaign!

Great photos! David Sims really gets this campaign spot on in it's entirety from model casting, setting, and mood. The ghostly undertones and melancholic stillness is beautiful.
