Top 10 Digital Fashion Ad Campaigns of Fall 2020


The Best Digital Fashion Ad Campaigns of the Fall 2020 season as chosen by Kenneth Richard

The best digital campaigns are usually those that make the smartest use of digital platforms, creating experiences that cannot exist in print or traditional film. Fall 2020 proved that we have barely scratched the surface of possibilities for using digital channels in fashion campaigns, as well as reminding us that no technology can replace smart art direction and creativity. Our top digital campaigns of Fall 2020 combined technological transformations with artistry and an awareness of how to market for a culture that exists online.

Gentle Monster always pushes the boundaries of both digital and physical communications, and this season they made brilliant use of face filters to bring their collaborative mask project into (augmented) reality for all to enjoy. Alexander Wang similarly created a digitally dressed-up campaign that was divided up into phone-screen-size, Instagram-story-length segments.

Burberry created a tapped iconic image maker Nick Knight for a campaign which made artful use of 3D modeling technology. Its environments reminiscent of pools and skate parks subtly captured the feeling of eerie emptiness brought on by a summer in lockdown. Saint Laurent stretched out a long form narrative of an extended summer at the beach tapping into a sexiness and freedom. Daily Paper created digital comic books which explored important themes of diaspora culture and heritage, all through an incredibly cool lens of afrofuturism.

Though it was a relatively straightforward photography campaign, Acne Studios also created one of our favorites. Their intriguing images of the brand’s staff members and their dogs were simultaneously haunting and heartwarming, and felt totally unique.
