a few new things to fill daria’s modeling universe today. 🙂
first, we got this new unexpected campaign: balmain. unfortunately at the moment the only available image is still very small. yet, rather revealing. i bet it’s inez & vinoodh again… or not? i even wonder if the pic was shot on the same day and in the same place as the isabel marant campaign. anyways, i heart a very similar rough and post-fashionist mood. still emmanuelle alt behind? and her love for daria? it would be nice to write an essay on remotion and return of the removed in alt-werbowy relationship!
so imagine a long trip along the isabel marant road to nowhere through the desert … and at the end of nowhere – in pure mitology – this dusty green place with such a tall transgenetic being standing in heels. soundtrack is a slow lo-fi version of prince charming by adam and the ants. how beautiful if such a minor stream could finally become the new mark of daria’s late career. instead of new dull works aiming to make her charme regular and… er… commercially appealing to consumers.
from this perspective an article about dormice taken from fad looks interesting. daria seems to be “in talk” with them “to star in a campaign that is first accessed by portraiture”. it would be great to see her in a work by this duo that mixes so different styles, bonding classical references with a metaphisic vibe and a postmodernist dimension.
and to finish with another unexpected collaboration, even if that happens at h&m, according to vogue.uk daria should be in a forthcoming campaign featuring designer matthew williamson too and shot by solve sundsbo. a different photographer! look at the excellent result when he shot daria in 2003 for vogue uk in the editorial page (see link k on the left) clickin on ‘2003 – jump to the beat‘. i also wonder if he shot her for hermes fw 07 too. not sure about it at all. corrections are welcome, but certainly that editorial shows that he might know how to get darialogism out of daria… although it’s a campaign!
