With its tactile skins and techno colors, Proenza Schouler’s Spring ’13 collection boasts a graphic, high-impact edge. So, too, does the campaign, which, lensed by David Sims, debuts exclusively on Style.com. Starring Julia Nobis and Irina Nikolaeva, the ads’ punchy images collage vivid hues, graffiti elements, and surreal forms to highlight Proenza’s Spring wares. Not that they need any help standing out—we bet that once it hits the street, the neon python vest will cause more than a few cases of whiplash.
Mrs. Prada went to Hollywood for her Fall ’12 menswear campaign—Willem Dafoe, Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell, and Garrett Hedlund, all of whom also walked in her Fall ’12 show—and she’s going back for Spring. The David Sims-shot campaign of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, late of Anna Karenina, sporting cherubic curls and Prada joggers (above), as well as Harvey Keitel, Benicio del Toro, and Dane DeHaan. Guess you can expect Prada credits on the red carpet for Kick-Ass 2 (hadn’t seen that sentence coming down the pike today).
If modeling has a G.O.A.T., it’s got to be Kate the Great—and without much competition. It’s hard to imagine most other models earning a full tome dedicated to their greatest hits; Moss’ comes out from Rizzoli next month, designed by Fabien Baron and with text by Jefferson Hack and Jess Hallett. Above, an exclusive shot of Kate clutching Kate. She’s got the Testino cover in her mits—shot in Arles in 1996—but it’s only one of eight possible versions. The others, below, include shots by (left to right, top to bottom) Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, David Sims, Corinne Day, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, and Mert & Marcus.
Sarah Burton cast quite a spell on editors at her Fall show back in March with her collection of frothy, organza dresses and ostrich feather coats topped off with mirrored Plexiglas visors. And at long last, McQueen fans can finally get their hands on those visors today at the label’s stores and online. To showcase the collection, the designer enlisted David Sims to shoot the house’s Fall ’12 ad campaign, starring model Suvi Koponen. Here, Style.com gets the exclusive first look at the Fall ad campaign video before it launches on AlexanderMcQueen.com later this week.

Have you met Miss Wu? That’s the name of Jason Wu’s contemporary line created in collaboration with Nordstrom, named after the designer’s emblem of a hand-drawn owl. The collection will start with ready-to-wear, followed by accessories in 2014. “Instead of just doing ‘Jason Wu-for-less,’ the idea is to explore the other side of myself,” says Wu. [WWD]
Michael Kors is all about old Hollywood glamour, and it really shows in his Fall campaign. The designer tapped models Karmen Pedaru and Simon Nessman to play modern-day versions of the iconic pairing Carole Lombard and Clark Gable, in a Mario Testino-lensed photo shoot set in Los Angeles. This is the fifth time that the models have worked together for Kors. [WWD]
In other ad campaign news, the McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 campaign, starring models Aymeline Valade and Arthur Gosse, has just been released. Valade sports a mullet-like blond ‘do in the minimalist black-and-white photos, shot by David Sims. [M-c-Q.com]
