The art of collaboration

Fall-Winter 2009 2010 – Steven Meisel

Location: Studio, New York City
Steven Meisel is one of the world’s pre-eminent fashion photographers, a storyteller who creates images that are compelling and provocative. Meisel’s intuitive understanding of glamour - its conventions, ambiguities and irresistible appeal - is clear in this campaign for Fall/Winter 2009-2010. The clothes are glamorous, timeless and slightly eccentric. The quiet palette of muted browns and soft creams is warmed by shades of grape, bramble and lilac. Working on a set that evokes the hurried, spontaneous intimacy of backstage at a runway show, Meisel creates a narrative of control and allure.
