The collection designed by artistic director Karl Templer was inspired by the minimalism of the early 2000s, and it focuses on warmth, comfort and tactility. Fabien Baron works on art direction for the shoot with hair by Guido Palau and makeup by Pat McGrath.
‘’There is an overall emotional quality to the collection which can be felt in the campaign images – one of ease, a clear longing for human connection through touch, a desire to free the body completely from any constraints. The images combine a sense of strength and power with one of protectiveness and embrace. Low angle graphic photography exaggerates scale and proportion. Pulled back hair finished in a knot and graphic black liner add strength and individuality. A campaign that reflects the strength that was the starting point of for the collection, reflecting the timeless elegance of the brand over the past six decades’’, Ports 1961 states.
