Looking Back : 2009’s Top Campaigns

Each year we see hundreds of fashion campaigns but only a few stand out from the fray, looking back at the year that was these were the campaigns that caught our eye and held our attention.

01. Givenchy F/W 09
Photographers: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
Models: Adriana Lima, Iris Strubegger, Mariacarla Boscono, Leonor Scherrer & Ranya Mordanova

Adriana Lima for Givenchy may have been the casting coup of the year, but the entire campaign is a seamlessly chic representation of the Tisci aesthetic.

If anyone can take the concept of crazy cat lady and make it fashionable, it is Kristen, these ads were simply priceless and unforgettable.

04. Stella MCartney F/W 09
Photographer: Ryan McGinley

Whether you loved the idea of Disney creatures invading Stella’s ads, or found it cloying, you have to admit that the images were attention grabbing and fresh.

05. Balenciaga S/S 09
Photographer: David Sims
Models: Katie Fogarty, Elsa Sylvan, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Amanda Laine, Kinga Rajzak, Iris Strubegger, Anna Jagodzinska, Darya Kurovska, Anya Kazakova and Diana Farkhullina

David Sims is a master of futurist imagery and Nicolas Ghesquière’s S/S collection lent itself to this sci-fi interpretation ; lots of ads go for android chic but few succeed as admirably.

07. Bottega Veneta S/S 09
Photographer: Larry Sultan
Model: Emma Maclaren & Sean Harju

There was something unsettling about Bottega’s Spring series, as perfect as Emma looked in Tomas Maier’s ensembles, you still got the feeling that things were awry. The mood created by Larry Sultan’s eerie photographs, leaves viewers wondering about the larger story within the pictures. Nothing like an ad that pulls you in and piques your curiosity.

08. Chloe S/S 09
Photographer: Mikael Jansson
Models: Anna Jagodzinska & Toni Garrn

When it came time to visually define Hannah Macgibbon’s unique perspective for Chloe, Mikael Jansson’s ads did just the trick. Taking two of the new generation’s most iconic blondes and casting them as the ultimate Chloe girls, served as an incredible showcase for Hannah’s soft seperates.

09. Jil Sander S/S 09
Photographer: Willy Vanderperre
Model: Natasha Poly

Willy Vanderperre’s images for Jil Sander represent everything a campaign ought to be : his pictures are striking, memorable and take the clothes to another level. Compare the way Raf Simon’s fringed pieces look on the runway to the way Vanderperre photographs them and you’ll be blown away by the artistry Willy brings to his work.

10. Prada S/S 09
Photographer: Steven Meisel
Models: Ymre Stiekema, Viktoriya Sosonkina, Giedre Dukauskaite, Anna Jagodzinska, Sigrid Agren, Nimue Smit and Katrin Thormann

Meisel’s Prada muses campaign was destined to become iconic, it takes one of the best collections of the year and highlights everything that made it great. From the softness of Meisel’s color palette mimicing the muted bronzes and rusts Miuccia sent down the runway, to the references to classical art, each part of the campaign is flawless.
