Nick Knight—famed photographer, founder of SHOWstudio, and all-around digital fashion maverick—has always been ahead of the curve. So no one expected his Spring ’13 campaign for Chinese luxury retailer Lane Crawford to be a traditional photo spread. This season, Knight teamed up with stylist Katy England and enlisted model Ming Xi to star in digital images and films, which he created with 3-D scanning. “Three-D is a step toward the future of our visual language, which was why I started SHOWstudio,” Knight told Style.com. Knight has been fascinated with this particular method of image making (it’s also used for video games) for fifteen years and has, in the past, done 3-D scans of Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, and Naomi Campbell. The ads—which will appear online, in outdoor media, and in print this month—make Ming Xi look like some kind of fantastic high-fashion android.

It’s friends and family at Givenchy this season. For the Spring ’13 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by Carine Roitfeld and Katy England, Riccardo Tisci got intimate. “They are the people I love and who love me. It’s about family,” he said in a statement. “Something that is difficult to find in today’s world.” The Givenchy family (and now campaign) includes Kate Moss and Marina Abramović, among others, but it also includes a flesh-and-blood mini-family of its own: longtime Tisci muse Mariacarla Boscono and her own baby daughter, Marialucas. “When I look at this photo, I feel blessed with all the magic that surrounds me—my loves, my affections,” Boscono told Style.com. “Something very strong that embraces the love I feel for my daughter, so special and overwhelming that words would not be enough…and the concept of family that ties my soul with that of Riccardo, which stands in my life as something very, very special.” The campaign shot at left debuts exclusively on Style.com.
