We may well be thinking all things ‘Fresh‘ this New Year, but the genius that is Olivier Rousteing just reunited The Supers: Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer, for Balmain’s Spring/Summer’16. And we’ve officially lost our cool.
The beauties that ruled the modelling industry throughout the Nineties have united once again to front the campaign, which is a surprise from Mr Rousteing, who’s been so far preoccupied with current pop culture stars, like Rihanna and the Kardashians.
But then, New Year, new thinking, perhaps? Plus, the creative director does seem to know what social media wants, and want this reunion? We have for a long time…
Sharing the magical black and white shots to his Instagram page, the designer wrote;
“I WANNA INTRODUCE U THE ICONIC @claudiaschiffer for @balmainparis#iconic#campaign#thisisHISTORY#dreamscometrue shot by the incredible
@stevenkleinstudio art direct by the amazing @pascaldangin#dreamteam#topmodels#UmademeloveFASHION”
Photographed by Steven Klein, the trio are seen looking downwards into the lens, and we are pretty comfortable with that, seeing as they’ve remained goddess-like and on a pedestal since their iconic Versace show in the Autumn/Winter of ’91.
Here and now, The Supers look amazing in their “EPIC REUNION”, as Mr Rousteing puts it – but tell us what you think to Balmain’s Spring/Summer’16 campaign featuring Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer below in the comments box, or online @SPICETVAFRICA.
