JOAN SMALLS in Missoni fall 2014 campaign
Art meets fashion fantastically. Joan Smalls and Justin Barnhill are the protagonists of the Missoni Fall 2014 ad campaign. Photographed by Dutch photographer and artist Viviane Sassen, with art direction by Studio M/M Paris, styled by Vanessa Reid and Stephen Mann.
“A world advanced in time, like a daydream in the year 2970, symbolizing the aspirations, energy and highly imaginative vitality of the Missoni language and lifestyle.”
Beautifully toned cut-outs expand the energy (and identity) of the Missoni woman to a daring, even sci-fi cartoonish look, yet remains true to her elegant and feminine reality. The campaign plays with the forms against an “archaeological site and features abstract, geometric silhouettes of robotic “alter egos” which interact with Smalls and Barnhill.”
A melange of the past and future, art meets science fiction with a splash of fashion and beauty.. a “pictorial futurama”. Love it. fdmLOVES JOAN SMALLS in Missoni fall 2014 campaign selects by Brigitte Segura.
