Dolls, Man

Agency Network: 
September 2009

To promote the Autumn/Winter 2009 collection at Harvey Nichols. The campaign is inspired by the season’s trends which are iconic, edgy and really expresses character. We wanted the work to reflect that. We created life-sized Voodoo dolls and clothed them in show-stoppers from the season. Rewarding the Harvey Nichols’ shoppers with the thought that they will be envied to a ridiculous extent.

first thought: wear these clothes and you will be that annoying asshole people put spells on.
the ad is well-executed, though.

The dirty darkness really takes ways from the ascetics of the cloths. The concept works but the execution is lazy I think.

An amazing shot of the clothing and a really fashion doll, all wrapped up in a situation similar to "HN's Fashion Statement". And then you have something.

Think it for a while.
Then, in anytime, it will come to your mind as an idea.
