Meisel’s dramatically noirish black-and-white photographs draw out the collection’s expressive juxtapositions of texture and synthesis of classic femininity with hard-edged contemporaneity. Finding within this style a celebration of individuality, intimacy, and friendship, the photographer captures his models in individual or group compositions where they lean on, embrace, and support one another. Framed by the streets of Brooklyn, these moments of sisterhood unfold among a context of energetic, urban life.
While it still feels like Ports 1961 is a rather niche brand and doesn’t have the level of recognition and popularity it deserves – especially considering the accolades and talent of its creative team, and its penchant for high-profile casting – consistently strong, clear, and stylish campaigns like this one have us confident that the brand is only continuing to move up.
