Advertising / Lanvin Campaign AW12 By Steven Meisel
July 20, 2012
Lanvin’s legendary artistic director Alber Elbaz has chosen real, everyday women and men ranging from 18 to 82 to star in his A/W 12-13 campaign.
“I was interested to bring these clothes back to the street somehow, and seeing how they look on different ages, different sizes,” Elbaz told WWD. “It felt like a crazy family, and I like that.”
The new Lanvin family, shot by Steven Meisel, includes a waiter, a milliner, a recent U.S. immigrant – and an 82-year old former Apollo showgirl, Jacquie “Tajah” Murdock, who told the designer that it had always been her dream to go to Paris and model.
I love it!
