Longchamp Fall Winter 2009

Finally, a new campaign! Daria and Kate Moss are the faces of the Fall 2009 Longchamp campaign. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot the ad features high contrasted, richly colored images of the two in front of a group of sailors. Like Mert and Marcus's previous work, the ads are very 80's influenced with strong poses, and the decade defining heavy makeup.

This is not the first time that Kate and Daria have worked together. They've been shot either together or for the same campaign numerous times, such as Louis Vuitton, David Yurman, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, and Gloria Vanderbilt.

However, and I don't know if this is just me, but I never think that the two are properly paired. They are both great models in their own right, but I feel that they have such different dynamics. Hopefully, we will have more than a few pictures in this campaign, and better yet a making of video (I remember Longchamp releasing one for the campaign with French actor Gaspard Ulliel and Moss). For now though, here is the just released image.

  1. They released a behind the scenes video for last season with Kate and Sasha so I think they'll do it this time as well. At least, I'm hoping they do!
