Aaand, here's a third set of snaps by me, this time from Vogue UK August 2010. I find it really interesting how Chanel has published a different set of ads for all 3 main UK fashion magazines, while others, like Dior, publish the exact same ad. I prefer Chanel's approach!
How I love this. Can't put it into words as to why....perhaps that it has been refreshing to see the fearless quality of Karl's work the last year or so.
The reflexive flack everyone is giving him is a bit sad. I mean, I'm not involved in the work process here so I don't know who can be credited. But this is beautiful, edgy, weird, the perfect insane setting for the collection.
OMG, that's so bad, I had hopes for it, but it's incredibly bad (and collection is bad as well) Only first shot posted in the thread is kind of OK. They need to change photographer. Please, Karl. Chanel deserves more. And I doubt photographer change will happen, that's annoying seeing Freja again & again, and now Abbey Lee joins her. Next season I'm expecting same faces, maybe adding Claudia.
I've noticed Karl is interested in Natasha Poly last time, I hope she will get the next season's campaign, she suits Chanel more than Freja, and if she will, there's a big chance that Karl will ruin it.
