Mixed Reactions for Steven Klein’s New Jimmy Choo Spring 2015 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Theoretically, Jimmy Choo’s new Spring 2015 advertising images come complete with all the right components for a successful campaign. The luxury accessory brand tapped an established photographer, worthy models (including actor Kit Harington, who also stars in Jimmy Choo’s Man fragrance campaign) and more importantly, the accessories take center stage. It sounds ideal, right? Although a handful of our forum members aren’t so convinced.

“Ondria doesn’t fit this vibe at all…” gossiping disapproved.

“Awful. What [did] they do with beautiful Ondria? She looks so bad here,” added narcyza.

MON shared the same sentiments: “Ondria, sadly, didn’t bring any energy to this campaign. Ugh this could pass as a U.S. Vogue feature.”

“Carolyn Murphy or Amber Valletta would have killed this!” suggested Chanelcouture09, who went on to say, “I do still love it though, I think he’s an interesting choice and he looks fantastic. I actually want the shoes he has on in his second picture posted in the first post…they’re just lovely.”

Things soon started to shape up. “Very Terminator vibe, I’m not sure about the execution. Kit looks very good in his shots. Not too sure about Ondria. I like only her eyeglass shot,” posted Benn98.

“This is so, Steven Klein…I Love It!” raved justaguy, admiring the fact Klein lensed the campaign.

Also enthusiastic about the campaign was kokobombon: “Very Klein, I´m loving this. Way better than the past few seasons, finally an interesting direction.”
