Every so often there is an ad campaign that just makes you gasp in it’s sheer perfection. I usually fall in love with the inventiveness of Louis Vuitton, but this year it is the truly stunning campaign byWilly Vanderperre for Jil Sander that I simply adore.
This campaign is staged like a tribute to the best films of Hitchcock, with Natasha Poly and Daria Strokous standing in for Kim Novak and Tippi Hedron. The film has all the characteristics of Hitchcock movies, ice cool, beautifully dressed blondes placed in sinister scenarios,moody backdrops, shadows stalking on stark walls.
This season, the beautifully dressed, elegantly coiffed heroine will again take centre stage, with stores being full of form fitting dresses that would’ve pleased the always fastedious Mr Hitchcock, a man who liked ladies to look like ladies, white gloves and all. Here are a few of the best Hitchcock blonde pieces available on the High Street.
