Moncler presents the brand’s Spring – Summer 2017 advertising campaign shot by renowned American photographer Annie Leibovitz with a form of communication which has again proven to be entirely unexpected and innovative.
Following the fairy-tale atmosphere and literary vision of the previous Moncler campaigns, the Spring/Summer 2017 imagery plays out along a surreal imaginary thread. The images are transformed into a chameleon-like camouflage which eliminates any certainty of reality. The protagonist is Chinese artist Liu Bolin, master of the impossible and the invisible, renowned for his allusive art in which only the silhouette of his body is visible against backdrops.
When last seen, in the clifftop payoff of The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley’s Rey was face-to-face with Luke Skywalker. What happens next, to be revealed when The Last Jedihits screens, in December, is closely guarded. But from Ridley, Mark Hamill, director-screenwriter Rian Johnson, and producer Kathleen Kennedy, David Kamp gets exclusive insights into the future of Star Wars—including how the cast and narrative have been rocked by Carrie Fisher’s death—while Annie Leibovitz captures legends new and old.
You can tell the story of Elle Fanning through the things she does, but also through the things she does not do. Fanning would rather not sit still, for instance. She does not tweet. She does not learn her lines until the night before she shoots them (then she memorizes them in the bath) and does not watch her own talk-show appearances (“It’s like hearing your voice on an answering machine”). She does not appreciate it when the paparazzi trail her to the gym, because she thinks she’s not famous enough to merit the commotion. (“The rest of the world is like, ‘Who is that person?’ I’m like, ‘I’m sorry!’ ”) When people now stop Fanning on the street (“Are you——”), she tries not to reply, “Dakota Fanning’s sister!” Fanning, then, would not be the first person—and might actually be the last—to realize what a rare and even spooky star Fanning, at nineteen, has become.
