NEW IMAGE: Bally has a new design duo, Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler, and an ad campaign to show off their contemporary concept for the brand. The designers chose Steven Meisel to shoot models Caroline Trentini, Karlie Kloss and Nico Malleville in an opulent Old World atmosphere at the Essex House Hotel in New York. The models are portrayed sitting on a tan leather sofa, clad in fur or checkered wovens, their black bags and ice-pick metal heels in full view.
The fall ads will appear in Italian newspapers on June 19, the day of the brand’s men’s spring 2012 press presentation. The campaign breaks internationally in fashion magazines in the August and September issues. The ad budget was not disclosed but Bally plans a double-digit increase in investment in key European, Asian and North American markets.
Check out this story posted by Lomax. Karlie seems like a really sweet, amazing person. I wish I get to meet her as well someday!
So today played host to one of the greatest moments in my life. That sounds a bit intense I realize, but you have to trust me on this one. As I’m sure many of you have noticed, I post frequently on this blog and my Tumblr about Karlie Kloss. She’s my absolute favorite model and I’ve loved her work ever since the first time I saw her in Teen Vogue threeish years ago. I mean obviously she’s gorgeous but I guess I’ve always admired the fact that she is an “all-American” girl who has conquered the modeling industry by the age of eighteen. Every time I’ve seen her in interviews she seems so sweet and approachable; I’ve always told myself that if I ever meet her I have to go up and say hi to her.
As luck would have it I was bored today waiting for my casting to start so I decided to do some shopping. I went out of my way to find Topshop in Soho but before I ran into it I walked by an American Apparel store. I’ve never even bought anything in that store but for whatever reason I decided to go in and have a look. When I was done in the store I walked out and starting heading to Topshop. Before I knew it I noticed a super tall girl walking towards me. I always love seeing other tall girls on the street so I just kind of observed her casually until I realized “oh my gosh it’s Karlie Kloss”. Before I could even hesitate I walked straight up to her, tapped her on the arm, and introduced myself. Luckily she was a complete sweetheart and greeted me very sincerely and stopped what she was doing to talk to me. I told her I was a fan of hers and that it was such a pleasure randomly meeting her. She asked where I was from and how long I’d been modeling. The fact that she just assumed I was a model kind of made my life, I mean a super model telling me that I looked like a model? Amazing.
