The best fashion advertisements for 2016
Mentioned below are some of the best advertisements of 2016 that are worth seeing. Chanel’s digital collages was the theme of their 2016 campaign. Gucci’s campaign was shot in Tokyo and is high on deko- trucks and cherry blossom gardens. Calvin Klein’s hired 27 celebrities, where each celebrity print ad carries a statement from him or her. Coach’s campaign was shot in New York on the terrace of a skyscraper with six models against a stunning vintage car. Balmain’s campaign led by Kim Kardashian and Kayne West is the idea of music meets fashion.
Perfume or Handbag ? Decadence by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs recently launched a new women’s fragrance called Decadence that comes in a bag-shaped bottle that looks like a cross-body sling bag. The dark emerald flacon is shut with a snakeskin leather cap.
Decadence opens to strong notes of Italian plum blended with overpowering notes of saffron and iris extracts. With time, the top notes switch to floral mid notes of Bulgarian rose, Sambac jasmine, and orris root. It is the perfume’s base notes of strong liquid amber, vetiver, and papyrus wood that actually lend the fragrance its lingering effect.
