Switching Teams - S/S 2014 Campaigns

As the Spring/Summer 2014 campaigns with the most prestige and influence begin to surface just in time for the new year, it is becoming glaringly clear that fashion houses and casting directors are on the look out for fresh new faces to attract consumer spending. High fashion design houses; Prada, Chanel, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana have made distinct departures from their all too familiar cast selections with the inclusion of a mix of brand new faces and heavy hitter industry veterans. Gucci enlists the contrasting beauty of newcomers Elisabeth Erm and Amanda Wellsh alongside make model Tommaso de Benedicto. Photographer  Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott hone in on the fragile delicate beauty of Erm and the powerful womanly sensuality of Wellsh to encapsulate the many sides of the Gucci woman. Dolce & Gabbana continue with their Sicilian vacation theme however the design duo's model as muses Bianca Balti and Tony Ward are joined on this occasion by Czech supermodel Eva Herzigova, and the Spring/Summer 2014's runway renegades Catherine McNeil and Marine Deleeuw. 

The subject of multi-model casts brings IMA to Prada's mammoth cast selection of newcomers for its Spring/Summer 2014 campaign lensed by photographer Steven Meisel. Casting director Ashley Brokaw corrals modelling's newest faces including Cindy Bruna, Lexi Boling, Ashleigh Good, Anna Ewers, Ophélie Guillermand, Sabrina Ioffreda, Magdalena Jasek, Lera Tribel, Viktor Van Pelt, Ola Rudnicka, Julia Bergshoeff, Lieke Van Houten, Amanda Murphy, and Gracie Van Gastel. Also rumoured to round out the cast are fellow newcomers Malaika Firth, Maggie Jablonski, and Maarjan Ridalaan. Taking a more conservative casting approach for Spring/Summer 2014 is Chanel's campaign duo Lindsey Wixson and the ubiquitous Russian supernova Sasha Luss. Designer Karl Lagerfeld could well be channelling his early nineties Chanel advertising campaigns featuring Brandi Quinones with similar upswept moppet wigs accessorised with bows, pearls and matching tunic jackets and thigh grazing shorts.
