Chanel F/W 11.12 : Freja Beha Erichsen by Karl Lagerfeld



Quote:
You never know what you’re going to get when you step inside a photo booth—but if you’re decked out in Chanel, and styled by Carine Roitfeld, as Freja is in the new Chanel campaign, odds are, the results will be pretty good
Quote:
The Fall 2011 Chanel ad campaign has the same photographer as always — Karl Lagerfeld — and Freja Beha Erichsen back for her fifth consecutive campaign, but thanks to new campaign stylist Carine Roitfeld, the set of images — previewed at the Cannes Film Festival and shot at a photobooth in Paris — has a decidedly edgier feel than seasons past.

Freja is sooo cute smiling.

These are just previews, right? It must be.

The only shot I remotely appreciate is the middle one. The other two are terrible. I hope this gets better.

Who told Lagerfeld he's a photographer?

^ he just decides, y'know.

I want to hate it but the winter humid-ish mood of this reminds me of some of the ads with Angela Lindvall around 2000, 2001.

That being said, he's a little too clingy with certain models, that's the weakness.. or just the 'trait' that gives his age away. He could move on faster, Janice Seinen or something, it'd make the brand a lot fresher. Or just fresh.

Despite all the bitching, I kinda like it. At least Karl has finally stopped trying to do the landscape/pristine/Eden photography, because he sucked at it. This more urban approach is kinda refreshing and just 'cooler' in general.

The styling has definitely saved this from being boring and Mediocre, like alot of Chanel Campaigns have been reduced to in recent seasons.

I can't believe Freja's had 5 Chanel ads in a row, does that set a new record for her at all?

I just cannot remember the last time I thought that a Chanel collection was actually good...

Oh my word. Glad you brought that up, probably the last Chanel ad I ever liked. So good.

To stay on topic, Maybe Karl decided to play safe in photography that why he chooses this set. You know, it is, after all, a Photo Booth.

The styling is the best part, really. But the photo with Freja smiling is just so lovely, cute etc. I cannot hate.

So this is not apreview? Oh.

It may well look edgier, but wherever's Freja & Lagerfeld's Chanel of late, I'm not there. I guess I'll stick to the bags campaign this season.
