This week we take a look at the best of Spring 2016 ad campaigns. Not unlike designer runway collections the top is typically dominated by big labels which have both the means and experience to maintain their momentum. With that in mind we wanted to call out some who may not have the media muscle, but certainly have the ideas to warrant attention.
Franck Durand brought emotion to the street with his powerful campaign for a designer whose next move we are awaiting, Anthony Vaccarello. David James and team helped designer Christopher Kane launch his first campaign blending shape with color. 
 Creative Director Patrick Li gave designer Jason Wu his most modern campaign, making us hope they take that risk together next for Hugo Boss. Robbie Spencer and Ben Toms brought their stylings to MSGM, and Nick Vogelson teamed up with the Public School design duo for a well proportioned story.

Here are THE IMPRESSION’S TOP ONCE’S TO WATCH DESIGNER ADS OF SPRING 2016.
