Bottega Veneta :: Robert Longo :: aw10 campaign


Darn cool collaboration shoots for Bottega Veneta’s aw10 campaign by Robert Longo

“The Fall-Winter 2010/2011 season is centered on the silhouette and characterized by contrasts of structure and fluidity, stillness and movement, and masculine and feminine. The palette is dark and rich, illuminated by flashes of moody iridescence. Both the men’s and women’s collections touch on questions of strength and power, exploring ways of dressing that express a multifaceted individuality.

Robert Longo’s series “Men in the Cities,” created in the late 1970s and early 1980s, has influenced photographers for decades. The series, which depicts men and women in business attire contorted in extreme positions, began as photographs taken by Longo on his rooftop. The artist then created large-scale charcoal and graphite drawings from the photographs. Longo, who works in a wide range of media including sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, and film, has a virtuoso talent for evoking complex themes with simple, powerful imagery.”

Best accomplishments of 2010 has decided to post a new topic for blog inspiration every day in 2011. I think it’s a cool project and I will try to answer the topics in my way, so it fits this blog. I will post a lot of other things too and the format with loads of pics and not much text will be kept – this is probably the most I’ve written in connection to any post so far :)

My posts for this project will be tagged postaday2011, and I created a category as well. Todays topic is the above and these projects has been my favorite in 2010.

:: Working with Denmark’s Next Top Model. I loved creating both the colourful dresses for the girl’s shoot and the dress hostess Caroline Fleming wore in the final episode. This first picture is Caroline Bader who won the entire competition. She was so sweet to work with and such a worthy winner too!

:: I had the great pleasure of selling my first collection in my own name in the Nag store here in Copenhagen. My final BA collection was sold under the name Le Beau Homme.

:: Living in London three months this fall. It was a great experience both work wise, regarding inspiration and socially. It was good to get a little break from life in Copenhagen, to meet some new people and live in a new city. I learned a lot about London and where to go for what. I loved that everything was open all the time and I especially loved the atmosphere in the city. I used a lot of inspiration from east London in my BA collection, and I used the city’s wipe even more in the work I did while I was there. I look forward to finish the work projects I started there and I will share some of the results here in the months to follow. Here’s a couple of my fav personal pics.

:: I’ve been so lucky to be a part of both the Stine Goya team and the Barbara i Gongini team for periods this summer. I got a lot of experience, learned so much, got some great new friends, had a lot of fun and worked loads too.

:: I have been working on a lot of different projects this past year. Some of it has been shown here on the blog and some of it has not been finished yet. I will show more in the months to come. I also have plans for more exiting projects already and hope to share them as we get into 2011.

What are your best accomplishments from 2010??
