Plenty of people knock neutral tones in fashion based on the opinion that they create utterly boring looks, but nothing could be further from that effect in the way that the Bally AW11 campaign presents itself.
Your beiges, camels, oatmeals and khakis do tend to assert an image of sophistication, which is admittedly present in each of these spreads. However, an examination of the models wearing these outfits will reveal a suggestive air that may, for some, be unexpected. Caroline Trentini and Karlie Kloss pose with a fierce and feminine sass that shatters any shred of a stuffy aesthetic. Tousled tresses and provocative positions give black, brown and navy apparel a dynamic quality, while Nico Malleville musters an impression of mystery. Between the behavior of the subjects and the flair of the fashions, Steven Meisel's Bally AW11 campaign is infused with a seductive charm.
