It's only late June, but the new Dsquared2 campaign by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott almost has me ready for back-to-school.
Dean and Dan hit it right on the spot with casting. This had to have been the most attractive student body at any school, anywhere. Daphne and Bette were just perfect and Simon van Meervene looked delish. All the models were killing it. And really, a good model casting can make any ad campaign a hit.Following with the school theme of their fall collection, the video was set in a 60's-style high school classroom. Not the most innovative or original campaign, but it was very appealing and very cute. The clothes were parallel with the Dsquared2 aesthetic and there were quite a few pieces that I'd love to get my hands on, especially those encrusted frames from the Fall 2012 eyewear collection.
Great soundtrack too. Gotta love a little 60's Shirley Ellis.
