That's one ugly campaign. It's all too dark and the background is hideous. Are you sure that's shot by Meisel because I don't see the city lights and all the stuff articles described these ads so perfectly and now it's total crap. Liya looks okay but what have they done to Raquel. She looks like a vampire or even like a zombie with the last pose. Bring Olga back.

Olga is too ethereal for a collection this , that's why she was so great for the last one because of the flowing dresses and fabric uses..this was a lot sharper.

^I just meant the pose she's doing but Thiago, believe me, Zombies don't exist . But if I will ever meet one, you will be the first to know.

i agree olga wouldn't work for this at all.

admittedly the last shot is not that good, it seems like they just photoshopped them on to the background-and badly- but the others are better and i still think this campaign is one the strongest of this season's

Yeah....and that's GOOD, not bad....- to me and everyone else who likes this campaign at all.

Anyone who likes this and doesn't think it has anything to do with graveyards, zombies, vampires and the undead, please stand up :p

Eh well yes that's good for you if you like it but I just don't and it's not like I have somethging against vampire/zombie/whatever things if it's done good I would like it too but I simply don't think it's one of Meisel's better jobs. SO the people who are standing up at the moment just ignore my little opinion .

i think raquel and liya look good in the last two ads, they're definitely not the problem for me. the whole idea is great actually, but, as FlanAuxAbricots said, it looks like they were badly photoshopped on the background...

TBH, I don't think this campaign would have any appeal at all if it wasn't for the vampire undertones. Without making the girls look pale, inhuman and a bit like they might kill you this is just a campaign shot in a park at night.

I think the ads could have been better. Raquel ruins it for me.

Are there any other menswear shots going to be released? I'd love to see more as I really loved the first one
