BLING BLING!! The new Louis Vuitton collection designed by Pharrell Williams in collaboration with Camille Miceli…
Probably you have seen this already. No photo will be used in an ad without being digitally retouched today. I thought it was kind of whack when a friend of mine first showed me how he retouched a photo with his Macs for the cover of Vogue Italia some 15 years ago. Most of us won’t care anymore if an image we see is truthful or not.
The campaign for real beauty from Dove delivers another critical commercial called Onslaught. You have to see this one, too.
I love L.A., I love Eames chairs. Should I pre order one of these…

If you like fast cars, this Shell commercial featuring Ferrari will electrify your four senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, touching).
I hate cold places but love this one.

A new ad by a great French luxury label that doesn’t sell its namesake perfume.
Is this extreme or stupid? Maybe both. This kind of explosive craziness exists even in the world of high fashion, but I don’t find it in the world of perfume.
(Don’t worry, nobody got hurt. This is an ad by Saatchi and Saatchi for Quicksilver.)
Gee, Clement and Laurent are busier than ever (new launches are showing no sign of slowing down…), and I don’t even get to speak to them these days 🙁 But don’t worry, Katie and Marina, I received messages from both perfumers yesterday, and the mods are ready. All I got to do is to move my lazy xxx and pick them up. So, dear readers of this blog, a little more patience please. As we wait, Made by Blog will offer a special scent, and I hope there will be enough for everyone. But first read the following and check out the video before you jump to the opportunity.
I liked the early ad campaigns for Sisley (the Italian casual fashion, not Sisley Paris) very much. Terry Richardson’s photos ‘smelt’, I mean very strongly. They were raw and powerful, but at the same time undeniably sexy. Among thousands of successful photographers, Terry Richardson carved out the most unique style of fashion photography of our time. Richardson’s influence on commercial photography is similar to Warhol’s influence on Art. American culture has been good at producing iconoclastic artists who walk the fine line between art and commerce. I don’t know if perfumery or the fragrance industry could simply be put into this context, but I look forward to someone like Terry Richardson appearing in the world of fragrance and changing the way American fragrances are.
In 2003, Terry Richardson and Dominique Ropion collaborated on a scent called “WET” for Visionaire. The image which inspired the perfumer was Richardson’s photo of a woman’s breasts covered with sperm. Made by Blog will offer the samples of this unique collaboration.
