The image on the right is OK (I don't mind the hair and make up) but it does look like a backstage candid. My biggest problem is that the clothes are not being showcased properly, the pants look like Mom jeans circa 1991, the shirt looks odd and not in a good way and the overall look comes off as mass market.

Is it a joke? I don't like it at all. The collection was perfect and I was hoping to see some pretty damn good campaign. But this is just ...... stupid.

What is this, so awful. Is this really Meisel's campaign shoot? I can't believe it.

It's definitely has that sequential, undetectably psychedelic M/M touch, but probably not commercial enough for nowadays Balenciaga, or for tFS!, I would expect this from a more independent and smaller English label that's still trying to make an impression.

I honestly cannot remember this season's Balenciaga collection, but I will probably remember the ads, so I'll give them that for now.

This is hardly a question of commercial appeal, it's just a poor ad.

I agree, although as I stated previously I don't have a problem with the hair and make up. To me if you are going to go with such a simple composition then the model should have been put in one of the more elaborate or statement-y ensembles from the collection and it probably should have been a full-length shot to show the shoes. Or alternatively, there should have been more going on like a more interesting setting.

IMO these or similar looks would have been better choices from the collection:

I'm certainly not a fan of the hair and the make-up but it's not too awful considering the models they chose. I can only imagine how amazing this campaign would look with Ann-Catherine Lacroix, Kim Peers or Hannelore.

It's kind of sad if you compare this ad with the spectacular group-shots of previous Balenciaga-campaigns - Lily, Gemma, Freja, Hilary, Raquel etc.

Its terribly unattractive, almost trying to hard at it, and to be cool.

I actually quite love it. It looks fresh and effortless and somehow reminds me of the early 00s ads by I&V.
