The Best Fashion Denim Ad Campaigns of Spring 2022 Season as chosen by Kenneth Richard
Denim is timeless, and while fashion and marketing trends come and go, the relevance and covetable status of the perfect pair of jeans remains omnipresent. The creative teams behind denim campaigns thus have something of a challenge to present new concepts and ideas around the timeless style. The best denim campaigns embrace this sense of the classic and traditional while finding new meaning and opportunities for connection in it.
Diesel made a smart move to embrace both sustainability and timeless relevance with the launch of the Diesel Library, an ever-present collection of denim staples meant to be incorporated into any wardrobe season after season. The launch was celebrated with a surreally collaged campaign that imagined worlds occupied by endless variations of single personalities.
Calvin Klein tapped a number of stars from the Gen-Z spotlight, like Dominic Fike of Euphoria and Jennie of Blackpink to bring its classically simple jeans-and-tee-shirt Americana aesthetic to life.
Dreamy and poetic, the campaign from Versace Jeans Couture combined nostalgia for the past and optimism for the future in a nostalgic ode to the emotional journey of youth.
