The Campaign Trail: Fall 2011′s Worst Ads

Oct 26, 2011 By Amy

With the good comes the bad, while some brands had drool worthy campaigns…others not so much. Here’s a grouping of our least favorite ads for F/W 2011.

Roberto Cavalli

While we love modeling trioMariacarla Boscono,Natasha Poly, andKaren Elsonwe don’t love how much Photoshop work went into the after effects on these images byMert AlasandMarcus Piggott. The ad campaign is whimsical and beautiful, but it’s hard support the images after seeing the behind-the-scenes coverage.

Juicy Couture

Juicy did a fine job casting Raquel Zimmermann, the problem is we’re more excited by her blond hair then we are the plaid clothing. HiringInez van LamsweerdeandVinoodh Matadinas photographers on the shoot didn’t save them either. We’re hoping next season Juicy brings us something a little more creative than just a pretty model in front of a wind machine.

7 For All Mankind

Denim is one of those staple pieces that should be easy to feature since it’s worn year round, well 7 For All Man Kind missed the memo on that. The denim brand cast big time modelsAngela LindvallandSam Webbto be shot by photog duoMert AlasandMarcus Piggott. Too bad they selected shots that all feel the same, no variety or excitement in the campaign at all. The only good aspect is the natural lighting, which is always a win in our book.

Valentino’s ads aren’t bad, but we don’t find them super exciting either…they lie somewhere in between. The problem seems to be with the dark shadows and light colored clothing. Don’t get us wrong, we likeDavid Sims‘ photography, we’re just not fans of how the garments are being displayed in some of the shots. Call us crazy, but in order to want to buy clothes we need to see them.
