Balenciaga F/W 11.12 by Steven Meisel


Quote:
LIVE WIRE: Balenciaga’s fall campaign won’t break in a magazine. Instead, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière has decided to feature it first on the company’s revamped Web site when it goes live Monday. For the first time, the designer will also release behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot. It took place in a New York studio made to resemble the pristine, bathroom-tile show set, and also a church in Harlem. Models including Julia Nobis and Liisa Winkler posed for Steven Meisel, with styling by Marie Amélie Sauvé and layouts by M/M Paris.

the clothes look nice, but other than that, i'm very much on the fence. i'm not too thrilled about the casting, and i honestly don't get the two images together. does it have to do with past and present architecture and design?

i like meisel, but i kinda miss david sims's reign with balenciaga: simplistic, excellent model casts, more focus on the body/clothing and movement. but knowing me, i'm sure i'll come around to liking this campaign once more photos develop.

I quite like it, although it's very Prada Fall/Winter 07

models are (to my knowledge/guessing): Julia Nobis, Liisa Winkler, Carla Gebhart, and Juliane Gruner

Carla sitting down is just stunning... pure elegance, my eyes go to her

wow. i actually really like this. can't wait for more images. I actually like how the two backgrounds don't match, but the clothes link the two images together for sure.

Neither bad nor striking.. I've always thought it is just hard to execute the concept/aesthetic of Balenciaga. The clothes are always magnificent but the campaigns are not, usually.

This is nice, but the first shot looks like a futuristic version of the valentino campaign. :p

I´m actually liking it, very much, that´d probably be my favourite Meisel´s campaign for Balenciaga. I knew Juliane would get, her shot is really fantastic.

And WOW, am I seeing Carla Gebhart in this?! Brilliant!

I didn't like the collection that much, but I have to say this campaign is making me warm up to the it. With that said, I do wish Balenciaga would get rid of Meisel already. None of his campaigns have really done any justice for the collections he has photographed.
