DSquared2 F/W 2010 Campaigns

I love these new ad campaigns for DSquared2 F/W 2010, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot ( and published in June 2010. I had featured the pair of photographers for last week's Artist of the Week ( I love the teal/blue background colour, it reminds me of a cooling freezer and the vibrant red that appears in each photo makes the photos come to life more; from red dresses, lipstick, gloves. I also like the dark romantic theme and the fact that the models are in glass boxes suggests sexual desires which is seen throughout many fashion editorials and campaigns today. The crimson/maroon and black colours adds to the dark/ gothic/ rock feel plus using blood dripping from bodies adds to that element. I think these photos would certainly stop you in the street and demand your attention. They're bold, provocative and mystic.

Love how he's intently looking through glass box and the model's erotic pose.

I'm not too keen on the model's hair but alternative hair styles are certainly in at the moments especially from the 80's/90's.

This is very high fashion, futuristic goth. The jet black hair and bold red lipstick is a strong look at the moment.

The garments in this is spectacular. I'm lovin DSquared2 new collection. 

I love the blood dripping from the model's torso and the levitating man in the far right. This is both creepy but arousing to some.

The levitating man looks amazing in this photo and using mirrors creates the illusion there are two models levitating. Mert and Marcus certainly know how to capture the viewers attention and have us in awe.

I love the styling in this.
