The ever-secretive Tom Ford (who, as it happens, is approaching Fall ’13 much less secretively with a full-on fashion show during London Fashion Week in February) has given Style.com a first look at his Spring ’13 campaign. As in seasons past, Ford lensed the ads himself. With an air of retro futurism, the shots are sleek, sexy, and sophisticated—not unlike the mirror dress and gold bondage shoes (yes, the same pair Anne Hathaway wore in vegan-friendly black to her Les Mis premiere) Karlina Caune dons in the ad. The men’s images feature Simon Van Meervenne sprawled out in a silver suit. Ford’s spring campaign will launch this week on his website, and hit magazines in March.
For most high school students, the books have closed on this academic year and summer is now in full swing. Not so for Dean and Dan Caten’s co-eds—the Dsquared² designers, who staged a full-on high school prom at their Fall ’12 show in Milan, continued with the theme for their latest Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed ad campaign. The short film (debuting exclusively here on Style.com today) is an ode to teen rebellion in the sixties, featuring the designers and a very good-looking crop of students, including models Benedikt Angerer, Simon Van Meervenne, Liuk Bass, Ralf Javoiss, Daphne Groeneveld, Frida Aasen, and Bette Franke. Though they are sporting the label’s sweeter-than-usual offerings for Fall, like button-downs, brushed mohair sweaters, and cropped pink pants, don’t be fooled—they are up to no good. Watch the full film, shot at London’s Ragged School Museum, to see what they’ve got up their sleeves.
