EXCLUSIVE: Joan Smalls Goes Sci-Fi Sophisticate for Missoni

The Fall ’14 campaigns continue to roll out today and Missoni is the latest house to debut its new ads. Staring Joan Smalls and Justin Barnhill, the Viviane Sassen-lensed snaps transport Angela Missoni’s geometric Fall wares into a dreamlike, futuristic landscape. “It’s an imaginary world, one thousand years forward, and a surreal and humorous setting comprised of ancient ruins, bright vivid color, metallic shades, sharp geometric patterns, and robotic futuristic creatures—an ideal frame for Missoni’s contemporary and stylish woman,” Angela Missoni told Style.com.

No doubt, Missoni had her pick of mega models to star in the ads, considering previous campaign faces have included Christy Turlington and Stella Tennant. Of her choice to tap Smalls, the designer offered, “[She] is one of the most famous and adored models of this moment, and she perfectly embodies the spirit of this collection. With her beautiful complexion, intensity, and strong, contemporary attitude, she seemed to me the ideal protagonist of this campaign, one that puts together past and future, memory and sci-fi, and reality and fantasy.” Shot at an archeological site, the photographs, as well as a trippy-meets-quirky film, both of which debut exclusively here, feature colorful cutouts that lend the imagery a playful, almost cartoonish feel. Most important though, Smalls is easily the most sophisticated sci-fi heroine we’ve ever seen.

Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Spring ’15 previews is available here.

Rossella Jardini Joins the Missoni Family

jardiniMoschino seems to be in the headlines more and more often these days. Following Jeremy Scott’s riotous debut collection in Milan last week (would you like fries with that?), WWD reports that the house’s former creative director Rossella Jardini has been tapped by Missoni. Jardini joins her friend Angela Missoni and will be acting as a “consultant” to the Italian house. “She is an experienced and extraordinary designer, expert in merchandising, photography, style, fabrics, and shapes,” Missoni said. She added that Jardini is “like family. I’ve known her for so long.” This will certainly be a dynamic duo to watch when the Spring shows come around.
