I don't think the ad is meant to be sexual but rather to portray Douglas (left) as being Clement's ventriloquist dummy. The placement of his arm behind Douglas's back is like propping up a puppet, and also how the left models leg is dangling and Clement's is behind it to support it up. Also the surprised straight forward look on the left models face and the fact that he is wearing shoes and Clement is not.

I really like this! Perfect composition, and I kind of like how strange it is.

very interesting.... and now that you tell.... maybe you're right
but I prefer to think it has sthg related to sensuality btw men...
I mean it's pretty rare to see such sensual, soft and discreet homosexual feelings in ads... and the ad is so beautiful....
But when we'll see the rest of ads... your (good) interpretation may be right...

I like this. The idea is so original and Jil ads are always so intriguing and enticing!

I think Irina K. is the perfect choice for Jil Sander.

Still, I actually really like this Jil Sander campaign so far. The mood is a tad darker, which is a nice contrast to how light and ethereal last season's ads looked. There's definitely a really subtle sexuality presented there. Now if only they had given Clement shoes...but I understand the reasoning for keeping him barefoot. Still...I really hate looking at feet...
Me too. But like you, I'll let it slide because it does add something to this ad...

So clean and simple, but the mood, and every detail, is just right.

is Irina (Lazareanu?) and Kasia in the title of this thread because there will be an ad with them for Jil Sander womenswear?
