VERA WANG FALL 2019 AD CAMPAIGN
Vera Wang launches the new Fall campaign with a bold and dramatic look with a call of the strong Celtic culture.
August 19, 2019
The Vera Wang Fall 2019 ad campaign outlines a collection with its roots in Celtic tradition as the designer was attracted to the culture’s fierce warrior women.
Photographed by Inez + Vinoodh and styled by Panos Yiapanis, the campaign features model Marjan Jonkman posing in plaids as Wang went in the direction of the Celts. The designer created a collection of asymmetrical volumes with intricate layering from a wisp of a gold-paillette slip dress to a tailored jacket.
The Celts provided Wang with other design elements including the manuscript-print dress in body-hugging silk jersey was more persuasive than the Celtic words for loyalty, bravery, and constancy that were embroidered on pants and sleeves.
The designer tapped into those decades of experience in bridal to create a delicate, white-lace apron dress, the vibe of which she described, in her quotable way, as “priestess druid.” But her best idea, in the end, had little to do with the inspirational Celts. It was a charcoal gray faux-fur robe coat that fully reversed to a lining of giant silver sequins.
