Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot photographed Swanepoel and Jon Kortajarena while in London overlooking the Thames. They showcase the rich tones, exotic textures, and ultra-luxe fabrics of Ford’s work through the use of high gloss colors and a sexually-charged, glamorized atmosphere.
If I had to pick one word to describe the campaign, I would say excess. The heavy eye make-up, intentional red-eye, red lip, and high gloss colors just scream excess to me. What better way to embody the luxury and decadence of the collection than through the use of excess?
If you watch True Blood, you’ll know that Pam would totally rock this look like it was no one’s business. The blood red jewels. The velvet and lace. Vampy and beautiful.

I have a thing for accessories. Especially accessories with amazing details like this:
These deserve a closer look. You can’t see this amazing ring in the official shot above… I WANT.
Love this shot:
This dress? The lace? The color? The belt? The movement? It’s a work of art.
I couldn’t find a larger shot of the full look, although there is a close-up below, but that green color is amazing.
Then there is Jon:
So… what do you think?
A special shout-out to goes Grit and Glamour for alerting me to the release of the campaign today.
