I'm afraid it's not quite as black and white as that.
The neutral hues and ethereal mood do not equate to subtlety, nor require a refined taste to appreciate them. Tim Walker often uses natural lighting, but his sets and styling are always incredible - the lighting tones down what could easily appear gimmicky - it's a question of balance.
This campaign is overbalanced on the 'subtle' side - the clothes, models and set are all pastel coloured and washed out, and none of those factors are particularly interesting.

I think these images capture a rare perfection that is hardly ever seen in print these days. Yes, it's a bit quiet, but not bland and definitely memorable. To me, it's a very natural campaign with little details making the images all the more perfect. The beauty of it is quite subtle.

Wasn't feeling the first shot initially, but having seen the whole campaign, I'm in love. The group shot with Fei Fei in black is divine.

I like it a lot but i feel it looks a little bit like an editorial to me (I guess maybe it's because of the number of pictures), also i would've like the clothes making much more contrast with the background. But i guess when i'll see it in print i'll love it, don't get me wrong cause anyway i still think it's better than 95% of other campaigns this season and this is one of my favorites for sure.
I honestly wouldn't say that any model stole the campaign, because i feel that all of them in a group with the usual deborah's awkward poses are the focus of the pictures. Love it.

I'll see if it's my fav campaign when i see more pictures from the Nina Ricci campaign

Definitely agree - I couldn't have said it better myself. While I love this campaign, I can see why many do not. My favorite shot is the one where they're all wearing black dresses. I wish this notion was more kept throughout, but I like it nonetheless. I do agree that some shots look a bit awkward and uncoordinated (especially the one with Fei Fei in the lilac dress and the other girls in the background). This is definitely a different approach to many of Valentino's previous campaigns. Hopefully he keeps this aesthetic for the brand, as his concepts seem to be a bit repetitive.
