The new Lanvin ad is grotesque


Am I the only one thinking that the new Lanvin ad featuring some shit dance music is grotesque? Everybody seems to be praising it. I personnally think it's ridiculous and I would be scared to see my image endangered by such association if I were a Lanvin marketing manager... I like the brand though but I think it goes too far... And sorry if I am not being "fun".

What do you think?

I think it's interesting. After all serious posing super high fashion ads, this one makes me smile. There is definitely something in it.

I found it ridiculous and stupid. Plus, it doesn't underline the clothing line at all. Personnally, I just stared petrified at those bad moves instead of the clothing pieces... Eew.

But it's so funny!!!
Meisel is known for playing on kitche and pop culture.
In the video they are playing the video game Dance Central which makes it even more amazing. The viewer not seeing the screen, but simply the awkward reactions.
Also the lighting is impeccable.
I love that Miesel can transform from his seriousness, to creating works like this.
Taken fashion less seriously for a moment.
I love it. Are you sure? watch it again ;)
