Since 2017, Zara and Steven Meisel have proved to be a match made in heaven and the relationship between the two only continues to go from strength to strength, season after season (with a special Zara x Steven Meisel New York clothing collaboration thrown our way just last month). Meisel returns to capture another fashion campaign for the Spanish retailer this Fall 2023 season, which pays homage to French artist and fashion photographer Guy Bourdin. Models Ida Heiner, Angelina Kendall, Nyawurh Chuol, Awar Odhiang, Annemary Aderibigbe and Sacha Quenby become the faces of Zara’s latest Studio collection, transforming into beauties of the 70s (with the help of hairstylist Guido and makeup artist Pat McGrath) as they roam a makeshift luxurious apartment setting.
Per usual, Zara and Steven Meisel has once again been declared a total success by our forum members. “Love, love, love a Bourdin reference. A smidge of Wangenheim in here too,” approved Cocteau Stone.
“I love this, Meisel’s streak of greatness with Zara continues strongly with this campaign. It reminds me of his work for Alber Elbaz’s Lanvin, which I also always enjoyed. Very glamorous!” championed aracic.
In agreement was Overindulgence: “Zara’s the only brand left to truly let Meisel to do his thing (and have the budget for it). Loving this campaign – reminds me of the Meisel x Lanvin campaigns!”
“Well, it’s another fantastic campaign, as expected,” Fiercification applauded.
“It’s all just so glossy, glamorous and so wonderfully executed, that I once again just find myself in complete awe of how superb a photographer Steven Meisel is. Meisel’s campaigns for Zara have been nothing short of spectacular since 2017 and this is no exception. The use of lighting and shadows is brilliant and the girls look sensational,” raved vogue28.
Thiago described the campaign was “wonderful” and we’re not sure anyone could disagree.
