    So happy to finally see a Meisel campaign this season. This is his second campaign after the men’s Dior campaign right?

    lmao, Hugo Comte really is just selling 90's Meisel to people that never looked at it then

    It's always 1997 for Mr. Comte...can't blame I also wish I'd have lived that.

    The composition of the group shot's so awkard, I don't know where to look.

    Come on guys, we can't accuse Hugo of copying Meisel, when even Steven isn't that original... As much as (love) Meisel is excellent, he drank a lot from Avedon's fountain, even from Lindbergh!

    Hugo has said publicly that 90's Meisel for him is the paramount of imagery. So yeah, he is copying him. Meisel was a known copycat in the industry, the reason he got away with it was because they'd say he'd steal your idea but make it better. Is this happening here?

    I can't bring myself to hate Hugo's work. Yeah, it's so Meisel, but like others have mentioned, Meisel referenced every photographer in the book, many times over, throughout his career.

    I guess the problem with Hugo is that Meisel is his ONLY reference...he would serve himself well if he could broaden his perspective a bit.

    I see it more as an inspiration than as a copy!

    Does it look like Meisel's 90s work? Absolutely.

    Would I take this over Meisel's current Dior Men's campaign? Absolutely.
