IT'S A WRAP
While Vivienne Westwood’s campaign stands out as the most provocative this season, Raf Simons’ may turn out to be the most haunting. The youthful energy in the brand’s ads used to be dynamic and edgy, but not this time. The Belgian designer put together top Belgian talents for the shoot: model Luca Lemaire, stylist Olivier Rizzo and photographer Willy Vanderperre. An austere black- and-white tone and unassuming park setting belied the most depressing element in the photos: the other model’s wrapped head. Then, there’s Lemaire hugging the dummy- like model, probably hinting at the interaction of modern youth among strangers in today’s ever- connected world. Or, maybe not. No matter what it actually represented, it was eerie and unforgettable.
