EN FAMILLE: It was a family reunion at Missoni for the spring ad campaign. Set on communicating a “different and more realistic” point of view while keeping a lid on budgets, Angela Missoni reunited the clan to front the new campaign, which breaks in February fashion titles. The ads, shot by Juergen Teller over dinner at founders Rosita and Tai Missoni’s house, also feature Angela’s progenies, Margherita, Teresa and Francesco Maccapani Missoni, and her bother Vittorio Missoni’s siblings, Ottavio Junior, Marco and Giacomo. Due to scheduling issues, the only one missing was Luca Missoni, brother of Angela and Vittorio, and Jennifer, who is based in New York. “I wanted to highlight our reality and our lifestyle, which is reflected in our unique product and in the artisanal aspect,” said Angela Missoni. “This campaign really reflects the mood I’m in these days, even from a design stance.”
According to Missoni, Teller got carried away, to the point that, although he had been commissioned for a spread of eight images, he shot 42.
Our existence is not worthy without your presence. Join the fun!
i actually really like this, well the idea. its very cute, just makes me smile i mean this is a family and their brand. however, i dont think teller was the right photographer for this. i get that is photographs have this casual free aesthetic but the his photographs tend to wash out the details of the clothing and obviously it did that a lot here--a major fail as missoni and their pattern.. duh!
im hoping (but not very optimistic) that these and the details will look better in print. shame, like most, i liked both collections a lot.
