The art of collaboration

Fall-Winter 2009 2010 – Steven Meisel

Location: Studio, New York City
Steven Meisel is one of the world’s preeminent 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.
