i like it! it reminds me of the Gisele campaign and Freja in the f/w 10 campaign,
this look has been done before by Balenciaga and seems to be one of their favorites, you guys like it or not
i'm looking forward to see more ads although i would've preferred a more interesting background..

Looking very 90s or early 2000s. Not liking this at all.

I agree about the I&V ads...which is exactly the point why they should have let them shoot such a concept..now it just looks plain & uninspired I can only imagine this campaign by I&V with Hannelore or Elise

This is really a step down from previous seasons. The longer Meisel is shooting Balenciaga campaigns, the more I start to appreciate the David Sims ones.

Worst Balenciaga campaign by Meisel. I mean I don't feel anything, I can't like or even hate it because it is mothing for me. Backstage shots are much better than this.

Hannelore by I&V would've been perfection.

I also get quite a Kim Peers vibe from the new ad.

I love the clothes in the ad, but that's about it

Steven, please go sit down somewhere. You've been doing OK with editorials, but the campaigns are just . Balenciaga needs a change in photographers. I can't. I just can't.
Haha
LV: girly, sugar, sweet like the collection. Give me a dress.
Prada: love it, cause it looks like M&M....
Balenciaga: awful it's so boring. where is the inspiration?

i hate it all..the setting, even the choice of the models (yes i know we haven't seen all of the images). if you're gonna do a set like this, then cast models who can actually still sell clothes.

i love designerclothes. I didn't like the add with gisele either a couple seasons ago, only cause it's gisele and a woman i give it a shot. Although for the ones who doesn't know, this model doesn't look that young actually.

that said maybe there are better images.
The right one, she looks okay. It's not her fault that they put her in this setting.

If I saw this ad in a magazine I would instantly turn the page. It's so confusingly awful.

I think the models are to new, to unexperienced and to young to pull meisels awful concept off.

This looks like some wannabe-quirky shot you would find in some hipster mag à la Nylon. The first shot is so bad I can't even pay any attention to the clothes because all I can focus on is the bad hair and the fact that she looks like she's going to pass out any second. And what's the point of having those two shots next to each other anyway? Is it supposed to tell a story? Like "Oh, she didn't pass out, she was just about to fall asleep and is wide awake now" or something? I honestly don't get it.

I'd only expect this type of photography for i-D magazine, not a campaign by one of the larger houses.

I like this! It's fresh from them and their typical route.

The only thing that bothers me is that black patch on the shirt. It looks like a black square they photoshopped in to censor or something

I agree completely!
