And for me the campaign is 55% about Fei Fei
. I don't even know who the girl is but like I mentioned in Deborah's thread, when you see her [Deborah's] body of work and then look at what Fei Fei projected here.. she just seems made for this specific lens and campaign, you almost forget about the rest. In that regard, I do think there is a lack of 'balance' between the skills or just 'involvement' of the models but for me, the weakest (or just the less 'strong') of the entire casting has got to be Maud, there isn't one picture when she doesn't look like she's waiting for the camera to click or like she's become extremely tense after holding the same pose for a while. Guess one could blame it on her inexperience.
That said, these are minor complaints, I still find the set to be divine and it's all about textures and making each garment come to life through the scenery, you often see photographers/labels dying to create a sequence between 10 pictures, and I love that in this campaign it's almost a marriage between the construction of the clothes and the materials of these abandoned houses and their synchrony with nature.
Metal teeth of carousels.
