Based on the description from WWD I understand what they're going for, but I feel like I can't see the clothing at all. I can't see much of anything. Either I'm going blind or this is some kind of high fashion Rorschach test.

Perhaps the full campaign will be better lit, but when there is mention of something being cinematic I expect to see some cinematography.

i love the concept of a new door opening and you are just focusing on the shape. It's very romantic

Yes I noticed that too. There's something quite sinister to this photo that I find very intriguing.

What a beautiful shot of the campaign, really i love it & Kristen fits so well. The only thing than i don't like is the new logo, because it looks out of the place of the campaign.

Forward to see the whole campaign.

Yeah, the font is something to get used to.
I think Steven created quite a campaign for Wang SS, it seems this will be just as solid. Maybe too similar/safe though... established model, using strong gestures, in black and white... Ultimately, the goal is to embed so, it'll work.

Ditto.
I love the dark, dramatic mood it evokes and I think it does a terrific job at highlighting the clothes, especially the shape of it.
The only flaw I see in this is the new text. I'll just have to get over it.

I actually see no problem with the logo, I'm surprised that others are surprised by the typeface considering Wang's own logo. I also love the shot, the collection was one of my favourites. Very promising

will they hide her face in all the shots?

i first only saw 'Kristen' and was panicking already, thinking it'd be followed by 'Stewart'

looks like a video still to me, I wonder if Klein has done it like his "Time Capsule" with Amber Valetta?

What a waste ! When I read Kristen Mcmenamy and Balenciaga I thought it would be "gradiose" but this just lack of originality

Steven Klein might win the most boring photographer of the year award this year... hard t beat Testino and/or Slimane but so far I am very disappointed with his work...
