Top 10 Breakout Ad Campaigns of Fall 2021

The Best Breakout Ad Campaigns of Fall 2021 as chosen by Kenneth Richard

New talent can strike from anywhere. This season’s run of ad campaigns, in particular, featured an impressive, global chorus of fresh voices and perspectives, introducing us to totally new projects or solidifying the promising paths of young houses we already had our eye on.

Ludovic de Saint Sernin continues to be one of the most focused young voices in fashion, and the label’s steamy campaign only pushed the vision to greater heights.

Based in Tbilisi, Georgia, Situationist surprised us with an excellent campaign that felt both very specific to the label’s own culture and heritage while also being universally stylish.

13 09 SR lands at the top of our list with its very first campaign. The accessories house, recently launched by Carven veteran Serge Ruffieux, made a very strong debut with a slick and simple set of imagery that effortlessly communicated the fresh aesthetic direction of their sustainable collection.

Here are The Impression’s picks for the Top 10 Breakout Campaigns of Fall 2021 as selected by our Chief Impressionist, Kenneth Richard.
