Entitled 'Preservation Hall and Other Stories' this campaign features a string of actresses and models including Kate Moss, Moonlight's Naomie Harris, sisters Adwoa and Kesewa Aboah, Jean Campbell and Eliza Cumming alongside the Preservation Hall Brass Band. Styled by LOVE's Katie Grand the campaign was shot by Alasdair McLellan in New Orleans. 'In certain places and amidst certain sounds, time seemingly circles itself,' the brand explains in a statement. 'Throughout the untamed, thick-aired Mississippi bayou, draped with Spanish moss, the siren of insects is interlaced with jazz melodies somehow both timeless and avant-garde. In the deep American South, and more specifically the port of New Orleans, patois more than a dialect, it’s a way of life. Everything here is a deeply textured bricolage, full of tension and wild energy.'
For the Coach 1941 autumn/ winter 2017 collection ad campaign, the brand pays homage to its hometown of New York city. Shot in Brooklyn by Steven Meisel on an old subway train, the campaign portrays a string of models as best friends en route to an adventure. 'We’ve shot our campaigns in a scrap yard, on a suburban street and now in a subway train,' says Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. 'I want the setting to be down-to-earth. The Coach guy and the Coach girl are dreamers, but they live a life we recognize. One of the things I love about Coach is that we are different from the traditional luxury world. We’re not presenting some fantasy lifestyle—it’s grounded in something real and completely of today.'

Eva is no stranger to the brand, having worked as a Cavalli muse since the beginning of her career.
Dubbed ”Series 7” this campaign was shot by Bruce Weber and is said to take shape 'in an industrial world of raw elements and stark lines,' where Weber sets 'a Romantic ballet of never-before-seen characters and powerful heroines.' Among the notable names that star in the campaign are Riley Keough, Jaden Smith, Sophie Turner, Catherine Deneuve, and Kevin Michel. Speaking about the shoot, Jaden Smith says: 'Nicolas Ghesquière is one of the most creative people I have had the fortune of working with. I feel so honored to be a part of the LV movement and be on this journey with him....Working with Bruce Weber was one of the most magical experiences of my life. Standing in front of a Legend and learning from him was both an educational and spiritual experience for a young artist like myself. Being able to make an impact on art, fashion and the youth all at once was a dream come true.'
Photographer Willy Vanderperre captures model Kris Grikaite in six different states posing with six different Prada handbags for the Autumn/Winter 2017 season. Said to be inspired by a conversation, the campaign is described as: 'a dialogue, between the different images - each showcasing both the woman and her bags, in luxuriant close-up. A portrait of both femininity, and of fashion, these photographs are striking in their intimacy; they are personal, honest. The different identities assumed by Kris Grikaite are underscored by her accessories; each represent a different side of not only Prada, but the Prada woman.'

Entitled ‘Craft and Work’, photographer Alasdair McLellan captures model Cara Taylor in a variety of industrial-esque settings. 'We were looking at an aesthetic that is quite brutal and beautiful this season,' explains Kane. 'We really wanted an idea of a heroine from the factory floor, like the women who craft and have always crafted the incredible historical fabrics found in the collection. We wanted Cara to evoke that spirit; she’s young, fearless, an ordinary girl from Alabama, but at the same time an extraordinary girl. She personifies that attitude of the Christopher Kane girl, something quite indomitable.'
