One of my favorite thing about summer has nothing to do with summer at all. It is in fact the steady string of debuts of designer’s fall campaigns. It is one thing to see clothing on the runway, but seeing it photographed (albeit on a model) makes it all seem so much more…accessible. This year’s Fall 2014 ads were particularly news making, what with Balmain ditching Rihanna for a collection of supermodels and Rag & Bone featuring disgraced 1990s darling Winona Ryder. Oh, and the world stopped turning briefly because veteran model Gisele Bündchen sported a buzz cut in Balenciaga’s campaign.
Despite all of the beautiful fall ads realeased so far, it is not hard to single out my favorite: Mulberry’s Fall 2014 campaign featuring Cara Delevingne.
The ads, shot in the ruggedly picturesque Scottish Highlands, were shot by photographer Tim Walker, showcase Mulberry’s newest bags. Some of the said accessories are even the brainchildren of a collaboration between Ms. Delevingne and the esteemed British design house.
The pictures depict the sprightly supermodel romping about the countryside wearing neutral plaid skirts, knee-high rubber boots, and cable knit socks. I myself am coveting most of the items in the campaign, namely the chunky cable knit sweater pictured above and the shirt with the fox hunt-likeneck tie shown below.
This campaign is serving as some major inspiration for my fall wardrobe (I mean…those socks, those shoes!). I can only hope I look half as amazing in cable knit as Cara!
What are your favorite fall campaigns so far? And what do you think of Cara Delevingne for Mulberry Fall 2014?
