Don’t you just love this Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2018 ad campaign? More specifically, this top image? It is so cheerful and refreshingly creative. I absolutely love it!
As you will note from the quote below, this campaign is the product of self-reflection, which is befitting, as I am also self-reflecting. Some of you may have noticed an absence. Time slips by so quickly doesn’t it? I have been settling into retirement and let me tell you, it has been an adjustment. I haven’t posted recently because I haven’t quite figured out the redirection I want this blog to take. Additionally and to be honest, in December and leading up to the holidays, it felt so desperate and exhausting to even try to contribute my ideas for gift guides, in competition with other bloggers and retailers.
I have also been considering rebranding on Instagram, focusing on beauty, as I genuinely have been more attentive to my skincare routine and which products to purchase, but there is also my interest in fashion, photography, visual arts and traveling. Needless to say, it is difficult to find a niche, in order to stand out. Okay, enough about all of that, I am determined to post whatever I wish to post about, which has always been and will continue to be, that is to inspire, and I hope you stay along for the ride. In the days to come, I will be working with my web designer to fix the glitch with the email subscription, to ensure you receive the latest, whenever a post does materialize!
Now about this ad campaign for Marc Jacobs! As I prefer to only share images that truly inspire. I do hope you enjoy this one.
“For Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2018 ad campaign Jacobs has teamed again with longtime lensman collaborator Steven Meisel to play with the idea of light, self reflection, perverse proportion, and color. The result is one of the strongest campaigns of the season that blends reality with illusion. The artist effort feels like an updated version of “The Mirror of Venus” by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones with maidens entranced by a reflective pool in visual conceit. Models Aube Jolicoeur, Cristina Piccone, Fran Summers, Léa Julian, Remington Williams, Sophie Martynova, and Sveta Black play the maidens, while the unsung hero of the campaign is set designer Stefan Beckman, who brings illusion to life through mirrors and lights.”
