Ranking the Fall 2011 Ads, Part 2
Since our last roundup of Fall 2011 ads, some of the biggest campaigns have been released. From Chanel's cats to Balenciaga's church-going models, these ads are decidedly thematic. That being said, not all are successful. Most have the guts to get consumers into the stores, but some fall short and enter into parody territory. Click through and see for yourself.
Bodkin Fall 2011: Gray Day
The putty palette of Bodkin's fall 2011 collection--a range of browns, tans, grays--felt overly drab at first glance. Luckily, chic silhouettes crafted by designer Eviana Hartman, saved the day. From pleated skirts--the only concession to what's trending on the runways now-- to a peg leg pant and then slouchy, hooded sweaters, the shapes were relaxed and obviously comfortable, as Hartman intended. Best of all, you could instantly see each item becoming a love-worn part of your wardrobe. Additional kudos for the footwear (stacked wedges and tasseled oxfords were amazing) and bold gold cuffs which added an unexpected touch of glam to this comfy-chic collection.
