Top 10 Men’s Fashion Ad Campaigns of Spring 2020

Menswear stepped up its game this season with a slew of campaigns that balanced concept, execution, emotion, memory, and at times, humor.

Due to the men’s cadence of presenting collection ahead of women’s, men’s has benefited from the long lead time to concept before delivery, by about 2 months for spring. That additional time benefitted houses including Dior, Boss, Raf Simons, Berluti as well as Prada, Celine, and Zara.

This season saw Willy Vanderperre lens two of the top 10 men’s campaigns including Ludovic de Saint Sernin and Raf Simons. With the former, the photographer has managed to carve out a brand DNA marinated in sexuality that far too often falls to the wayside for men’s campaigns.

Of particular note this season is Zara. The film by Fabien Baron and photography by Craig McDean are both sublime and a real lesson in how a powerful concept and execution can elevate a mainstay brand above many a luxury house. The stage is set, pun intended, for how other houses respond. We hope the best for their future opening receptions.

Here are The Impression’s Top 10 Men’s Fashion Ad Campaigns of Spring 2020 as selected by our Chief Impressionist Kenneth Richard and the team at The Impression.
